 Apache Aries delivers a set of pluggable Java components enabling an enterprise OSGi application
programming model.
-Users have asked for a release of the Aries JPA bundles and hence the snapshot bundles it
depends on (Aries Util) - in particular due to:
+A new module called versionsing has been created for a utility to byte code analyse latest
binaries with the last release of those binaries to find changes that should cause an OSGi
Export-Package version attribute change, according to the OSGi Semantic Versioning whitepaper.
-* the new 'runtime enhancer' that will mean entities can be enhanced as they are used in
the runtime, rather than at development time.
-* the support for EclipseLink (in addition to Apache OpenJPA) as a JPA provider
+Bug fix releases:
-The release process has just started. This will exercise our per bundle release process adhering
to the OSGi Alliance Semantic Versioning recommendations.
+* Apache Aries Application 0.2.2
+* Apache Aries Util 0.2.1
-There have also been enhancements to the Aries JMX (whiteboard pattern) and Aries Subsystem
(to use OSGi Core 4.3).
-Apache Geronimo, which consumes Apache Aries to implement its enterprise OSGi application
programming model, has been readying a release. The performance enhancements in the Aries
Proxy module which now makes use of the new Weaving Hooks OSGi specification, has had a few
teething problems for Geronimo. All known problems are now resolved.
+We have been putting together a functional release from trunk but it's taking longer than
we'd hoped. Due to our objective of getting the OSGi versioning correct, we're having to release
more modules and correct more OSGi version ranges than we had hoped. A fully staged release
of Apache Aries Blueprint and its dependencies is imminent.
