announce the availability of Apache Karaf 2.2.5.
This release of Apache Karaf is based off of the 2.2.x series branch, representing an update to Apache Karaf 2.2.4. It contains bug fixes identified in the prior release, and introduces improvements including; multiple JAAS support improvements, better support for Linux systems with certain versions of libc, SCP support, and demos for extending Karaf's console commands and using Karaf Archives (KARs). Several dependencies were also updated, bringing Pax Web to version 1.0.8, Jetty to 7.5.4.v20111024, and Jasypt to 1.8.
To help make the transition from Apache Karaf 2.2.0/2.2.1/2.2.2/2.2.3/2.2.4 to 2.2.5 easier we've put together a table of changed dependencies which you can view here: http://karaf.apache.org/index/documentation/karaf-dependencies/karaf-deps-2.2.x.html
For more information please see the release notes.
As discussed in my prior Apache Karaf 2.2.5 preparation post, I enjoyed listening to City and Colour albums throughout the release process and was delighted to try the Maison Sichel Bordeaux 2009 once the release was complete.
Now that this release is out, I plan to relax and spend time with family and friends for the holidays. This past year has been a wonderful time collaborating with the Apache community, I can't wait for 2012 to begin :)
