Unfortunately OSGi support is not going into 2.2.  There was discussion 
and work toward doing so a while back but at some point that was removed 
from the scope so that 2.2 could be released sooner than later.  OSGi 
support is IIUC still planned for a post-2.2 release.  What you will get 
with 2.2 is a Maven-based build structure and a SpringFramework-based 
container, which are very nice features.

Personally I've found 2.2 works just fine already, as long as you're not 
concerned about API/configuration stability.  All my personal projects 
use Maven and Spring anyway so having Cocoon work with them natively is 
very nice.

For projects at work, though, I'm still sticking with 2.1.x since it's 
not acceptable to work against a moving target.
