[ANN] Karaf version 2.1.0 Released!

jgoodyear
Hi,

The Karaf team is pleased to announce the release of Karaf version 2.1.0.

New to this release of Apache Karaf is a JAAS Database Login Module, a
way to store passwords in a secured way, a mechanism that allows a
karaf application to distinguish between UserPrincipal and
RolePrincipal without depending from the Karaf JAAS Module.

The shell console has been enhanced to be available in a plain
non-OSGi environment and smart tab completion has been improved, along
with various commands.

We have also resolved a number of outstanding issues, and improved
support on OS X and IBM Java based systems. For more information
please see our release notes.

This release is available from http://karaf.apache.org/download.html and Maven:

 <dependency>
 <groupId>org.apache.karaf</groupId>
 <artifactId>apache-karaf</artifactId>
 <version>2.1.0</version>
 </dependency>

Release Notes:

** Sub-task
    * [KARAF-217] - Update Karaf in kit Release Notes

** Bug
    * [KARAF-13] - javax.annotation not exported
    * [KARAF-19] - Exception in pax-web when shutting down karaf
    * [KARAF-125] - Webconsole can't concat strings?
    * [KARAF-133] - NPE when installing a bundle with a MANIFEST.MF
not in the first entry of the zip
    * [KARAF-134] - The sort command does not work when trying to sort
on the last field
    * [KARAF-136] - should override equals method for FeaturesListener
to handle the proxy compared to wrapped object case
    * [KARAF-137] - IOException on web demo when trying to connect through SSH
    * [KARAF-138] - WarDeploymentListener: checks for manifest osgi
entries but fails if no manifest is found
    * [KARAF-142] - NPE at
org.apache.felix.webconsole.internal.servlet.OsgiManager.service -
karaf started in server mode
    * [KARAF-143] - Setting "karaf.instances" system property has no effect
    * [KARAF-145] - Reading Properties like karaf.framework should be
trimmed before reusage
    * [KARAF-150] - Config admin contains 2 configurations for SSH port in Karaf
    * [KARAF-162] - need exactly specify the import jline package
version for webconsole.gogo
    * [KARAF-167] - Creating a new config using the shell commands
lead to a FileNotFoundException instead of the file being created
    * [KARAF-169] - Do not use the ClassPath manifest header for the
karaf client jar
    * [KARAF-178] - When the karaf runtime is launched under JSW, the
bin/client script fails to connect
    * [KARAF-189] - Java endorsed dirs on AIX (IBM JVM)
    * [KARAF-190] - karaf-wrapper.conf is incorrect
    * [KARAF-199] - WarDeploymentListener: doesn't handle the default
Webapp-Context correct on a Windows System
    * [KARAF-204] - Ctrl+D needs to be followed by another character
to be recognized (at least when using the karaf client)
    * [KARAF-206] - The converter used for converting commands
arguments and options can't convert objects to String

** Improvement
    * [KARAF-106] - Provide a more minimal / static disitrbution of karaf
    * [KARAF-130] - Allow a repository URL to be added to feature
repository URL list even though it is an invalid one
    * [KARAF-135] - The package:export command should have more option
to control the output
    * [KARAF-139] - Add a Shell Console branding demo
    * [KARAF-140] - Modifying properties and saving them via the
Config Console removes comments in the original file
    * [KARAF-141] - Tests should be able to be run without any
internet connections
    * [KARAF-146] - osgi:list should only print out 'system' bundles
above a certain level, by default, this should be 50, but it should be
configurable
    * [KARAF-148] - features:listUrl should print the repository names
as well as the Url.
    * [KARAF-152] - when using the @Argument annotation, if there is
no name specified it would be nice to reuse the name of the field,
rather than use VAL
    * [KARAF-155] - optional @Argument values (and I guess @Option
values) can have default values which could be displayed in the help
screen by reflecting into the value and finding non-zero/null values
    * [KARAF-157] - [PATH] minor patch to make it easier to reuse the
Karaf command line console from outside Karaf specialising the user
and application
    * [KARAF-158] - better display of errors when running a non-osgi
command line outside of the shell
    * [KARAF-159] - when a bad command is typed (e.g. invalid command,
argument, option) we should use some kind of syntax highlighting for
the name of the command/argument/option in the error message
    * [KARAF-161] - provide an easy implementation of "public static
void main(String[] args)" for a single command (i.e. for non-shells)
    * [KARAF-163] - Generate Features XML should handle artifact types
    * [KARAF-164] - Allow sub classes of Main to override the META-INF
path used to discover commands
    * [KARAF-168] - Upgrade to latest Felix framework
    * [KARAF-170] - Main --help should behave like Main someCommand
--help and list all the possible sub commands when outside of OSGi
    * [KARAF-171] - provide a default "help" sub command in shells
used outside of OSGi
    * [KARAF-173] - Make it easier to configure the Karaf Main shell
by subclassing.
    * [KARAF-174] - tab completion of sub commands not working in the
non-osgi shell
    * [KARAF-175] - Upgrade to Java Service Wrapper 3.2.3
    * [KARAF-176] - Improve integration to provide a clean shutdown
when running as a service
    * [KARAF-177] - Support 64 bits platforms for Java Service Wrapper on OS X
    * [KARAF-181] - Allow the cmdhelp maven plugin to generate output
in confluence format
    * [KARAF-182] - Upgrade to Aries 0.2-incubating
    * [KARAF-184] - Enhance the dev:framework command to display or
set the OSGi framework name
    * [KARAF-185] - Have a 'clean' parameter on the main shell script
to clean the working folder
    * [KARAF-186] - Upgrade to pax-logging 1.5.3
    * [KARAF-187] - The completers do not work when several commands
are on the same line separated by a column or pipe
    * [KARAF-191] - Create a Karaf Util module gathering all util classes
    * [KARAF-192] - Completion does not work on options, or even on
arguments if an option is specified
    * [KARAF-193] - It should be possible to load a Command
description from a text file
    * [KARAF-196] - Improve the output of osgi:headers command
    * [KARAF-198] - Remove dependency upon org.slf4j.helpers.MessageFormatter
    * [KARAF-200] - Upgrade to latest pax-runner and pax-exam
    * [KARAF-202] - Create la alias in shell.init.script
    * [KARAF-207] - The webconsole feature should not depend on the
admin bundles
    * [KARAF-208] - when reusing the karaf shell outside of OSGi where
there's only one shell scope, it would be nice to avoid prefixing the
command names with the scope or with "*:" which is confusing
    * [KARAF-210] - Allow to specific context-path when installing a
war file using the war url handler

** New Feature
    * [KARAF-26] - have restart clean command/API
    * [KARAF-144] - Allow using the console and commands outside of OSGi
    * [KARAF-147] - We should have a features:listVersions command
that lists all the known versions of a feature
    * [KARAF-149] - Add a features:removeRepository command
    * [KARAF-166] - Allow subclasses of
org.apache.karaf.shell.console.Main to be used as sub shells
    * [KARAF-172] - Implement a mechanism that would allow a karaf
application to distingush between UserPrincipal & RolePrincipal
without depending from Karaf JAAS Modules
    * [KARAF-180] - JAAS Database Login Module
    * [KARAF-212] - provide a simple annotation, say,@CompleterValues
which can be used on methods on an action to provide a list of
available values for an argument for tab completion

** Task
    * [KARAF-40] - Create a maven archetype for creating shell commands

Enjoy!

Good Work!

I think that its a good idea to create an article on "The Server Side" about
the new Karaf release.

Maybe Guillaume as Project Lead or Jamie as Release Manager are the most
appropriate, but I could also do it myself. What do you think?
