Subject [ANN] Karaf version 2.1.0 Released!
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2010 17:33:09 GMT

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:

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

** Improvement

    * [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

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

void main(String[] args)" for a single command (i.e. for non-shells)

used outside of OSGi
    * [KARAF-173] - Make it easier to configure the Karaf Main shell

    * [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

war file using the war url handler
