Subject [VOTE] Apache Felix Dependency Manager Release R7
Date Sun, 28 Feb 2016 22:11:09 GMT
Hello all,

We would like to call for a vote on the Dependency Manager toplevel release

Apart from being a maintenance release, the r7 release includes some new
like "configuration types" and a new "DM-lambda" library, which is
described here:


The R7 now requires the usage of a recent JAVA8 jdk (the new version has
been built and tested with latest version 1.8.74)

The following issues were solved:

** Bug
    * [FELIX-5146] - Service adapters turn on autoconf even if callbacks
are used
    * [FELIX-5147] - Bundle Adapter auto configures class fields even if
callbacks are used
    * [FELIX-5153] - DM4 calls stop before ungetService() on ServiceFactory
    * [FELIX-5155] - Adapter/Aspect extra service dependencies injected
twice if using callback instance
    * [FELIX-5178] - Make some component parameters as volatile
    * [FELIX-5181] - Only log info/debug if dm annotation log parameter is
    * [FELIX-5187] - No errog log when configuration dependency callback is
not found
    * [FELIX-5188] - No error log when a factory pid adapter update
callback is not found
    * [FELIX-5192] - ConfigurationDependency race condition when component
is stopped
    * [FELIX-5193] - Factory Pid Adapter race condition when component is
    * [FELIX-5200] - Factory configuration adapter not restarted

** Improvement
    * [FELIX-5126] - Build DM using Java 8
    * [FELIX-5164] - Add support for callback instance in Aspects
    * [FELIX-5177] - Support injecting configuration proxies
    * [FELIX-5180] - Support for Java8 Repeatable Properties in DM
    * [FELIX-5182] - Cleanup DM samples
    * [FELIX-5201] - Improve how components are displayed with gogo shell

** New Feature
    * [FELIX-4689] - Create a more fluent syntax for the dependency manager

You can use this UNIX script to download the release and verify the


    sh check_staged_release.sh r7 /tmp/felix-staging

This script, unlike the original Felix check_stage_release.sh, is specific
to the new Dependency Manager release process (see FELIX-4818) and will
download staging from https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/felix instead
of http://repository.apache.org/content/repositories.

To rebuild the DM binaries from the source, you can then refer to
