Subject Winding down 2.6.0
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2012 18:17:06 GMT

We're fast approaching 6 months since CXF 2.5.0 was released.   The 
migration guide keeps getting longer and longer (requires scrolling down 
now) which kind of shows we're getting enough 'stuff' to definitely warrant 
a release.   Thus, I really think we should get the release out in a couple 

Last week, Glen, Sergey, and I went through every single CXF sample and made 
sure they compiled and ran per the instructions in readme.   With over 40 
samples, not a small undertaking.  :-)   We're also in the process of 
checking all the extra examples that Talend has (and Glen has on his blog) 
and getting things updated.   Part of the reason for all of this is to make 
sure the release notes accurately describes any migration steps necessary, 
but it also helps to ensure everything actually works, but examples still 
make sense, etc... 

In the next week or so, I plan to test more with Camel (there are some test 
failures with 2.6.0, but they may be issues in the tests) and likely do a 
bit more OSGi related testing.   The major change in 2.6.0 is the split of 
the big bundle into the little bundles and updating the features.xml to use 
the little bundles.    Definitely want to test that as thoroughly  as 
possible.  I also want to check the distribution and "big bundle" things to 
make sure everything that is required is included.   We do have a bunch of 
new jars so they may need updating to make sure everything is pulled in.    
There are likely some JIRA's I may look at as well.

Anyway, I wanted to toss this out to get an idea of anything else folks may 
have on their plates to get in soon.   If everyone could take a look at any 
JIRA"s they have assigned to themselves and such and update things, that 
would be great.
