Apache Karaf build status and current road map.

We've had a busy few weeks here at the Apache Karaf project so I'd like to take some time to review our build status and road map.

There has been two recent releases of Apache Karaf, representing updates to the 2.1.x and 2.2.x branches. Each release encompassed bug fixes, improvements, and updates to libraries while attempting to ensure backwards compatibility within each branch.

Apache Karaf 2.2.1:

Apache Karaf 2.1.5:

On the radar we have several scheduled builds, with particular focus on bringing the first Karaf 3.x release to general availability. As we've recently produced patches to the 2.1.x and 2.2.x lines I would expect it will be several weeks before we begin discussing rolling up another patch. For anyone whom would like to know the current build status of Apache Karaf you may visit the Hudson build reports as indicated by branch below:

Apache Karaf 3.0.0:

Apache Karaf 2.2.2:

Apache Karaf 2.1.6:

We also have a new sub project, Apache Karaf Cellar, to have it's first release. Currently two versions are planned under the versions cellar-2.2.0 and cellar-3.0.0. I expect to see more posts on this project as it approaches a release candidate.

This is definitely an exciting time to be working on the Karaf project, and I would greatly encourage everyone interested in the project to join us on the discussion forums, drop by our IRC room, or better yet visit our issue tracker and join in with our fun :)
