Apache Karaf team are pleased to announce the availability of Apache Karaf 2.3.8 and 2.4.0!
Apache Karaf 2.3.8 is an update patch for Apache Karaf 2.3.7, containing several bug fixes, and dependency updates. We have introduced support of !$ to recall the last command argument, and improved the command description for osgi:shutdown. It is recommended that you review our release notes before updating your deployments.
Apache Karaf 2.4.0 release represents a new branch of Apache Karaf development. It includes the latest Aries and Pax libraries, Apache Pom 14, add support for role-based JMX authorization, includes heap dumps when we create debugging data from create dump command, blueprint-web feature, support for JAAS groups, and includes Pax CDI feature. There are several hundred items currently in this RC's release notes, so you'll want to spend some time discovering all the hidden gems.
As always, I'd like to thank the community for coming together to help make the Karaf release process one of the best in all of open source software.
