Subject Re: [ANN] Karaf version 2.1.0 Released!
Date Sat, 25 Sep 2010 10:18:14 GMT
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?
