The Karaf team is pleased to announce the release of Karaf version 2.2.6.
Apache Karaf is a small OSGi distribution which provides a ready to
use container for server side applications.
This release of Apache Karaf is based off of the 2.2.x series branch,
representing an update to Apache Karaf 2.2.5. It contains bug fixes
identified in the prior release, and introduces improvements
including; improved Windows, AIX, HP-UX, and Solaris support in the
service wrapper, three new deployer demos showing how to make an OSGi
bundle, a features file, and how to wrap a third party jar into a
bundle, and support for ssh public key authentication and agent
forwarding. A few new commands also appear in this release including;
features:status to indicate feature loaded or not, feature:chooseurl
to make it easy to install well known feature files, and a watch
command to allow users to watch the output of a karaf command like
when using the unix watch mechanism. Several dependencies were also
updated, bringing Spring to 3.0.7-RELEASE, eventadmin to 1.2.14,
Apache Pom to version 10, the maven bundle plugin to 2.3.7, and
fileinstall to 3.2.0.
