Subject Re: [DISCUSS] - Happy 5 years birthday on Camel front page
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2012 12:29:37 GMT
Hi

I found a little time during my vacation to post a news item about the
5 years birthday
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CAMEL/2012/07/20/Happy+5+years+birthday+Apache+Camel

The images is taken by me, eg such as the birthday cake, and the graphs.
