Apache Karaf 2.2.7.
This release of Apache Karaf is considered a high priority update for users of Apache Karaf 2.2.6. An issue in which configuration updates were not being persisted to storage was detected, an update to FileInstall version 3.2.2 was made necessary. In addition to the above other bug fixes have been resolved, including; updating the features repo pointer for pax-wicket, removing an unnecessary warning on missing repository name when the name is defined however not presently loaded, the SSHD authorized key provider now logs in DEBUG, and SSH now correctly uses the karaf.base variable. A version update to pax web 1.0.9 has also been included in the dependencies.
To help make the transition from Apache Karaf 2.2.0/2.2.1/2.2.2/2.2.3/2.2.4/2.2.5/2.2.6 to 2.2.7 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 2.2.7 preparation post, I enjoyed listening to Bryan Adams albums throughout the release process and was delighted to try the Santa Rite Reserva Carmenere 2009 -- this time I had to sample the wine a little late as I was on the road for the release process ;)
My hopes is that the next 2.2.x release will occur on its regular schedule, however we are always ready to quickly turn out a patch for a critical regression should one be identified.
