Since my last blog post on the upcoming Apache Karaf 2.1.0 release I thought that I should update everyone on its current status. The 2.1.0 release candidate is now in the validation phase, and is currently being tested by the Apache Karaf community as per our release guide :)
Some users may have noticed a link to the upcoming 2.1.0 release appear on the project homepage - no downloads are currently available. The Apache Karaf downloads page will be updated once a release candidate has been fully vetted by the community and voted to release status. So please stay tuned, if all goes well then I should be announcing the official release soon!
