Welcome to the the Camel 2.0-M1 release, the first milestone release of the new Apache Camel 2.0 project. We know many of you were expecting it. While it is just the first milestone release and a few changes are still in the pipeline, most of the API changes are in, so that you won't have to migrate twice. The core and most of the components you used for quite a while now are stable.
So what's new? Quite a lot. With about 368 issues resolved (new features, improvements and bug fixes) it is the largest change set in Camel's history. The apache-camel-2.0-M1 version comes with:
