+
+ The Apache Felix Karaf 1.0.0 release is the first release since the move of ServiceMix Kernel to Apache Felix.

+      This changes is a bit disruptive for the command line syntax, but offers much more features such
+      as closures
+  * Integration with the Felix Web Console (easily installed using the features service).
+  * Built-in support for Equinox
+  * Upgrade to OSGi 4.2 frameworks (both Felix and Equinox)
