Subject Re: [Discussion] OSGi Release 5 specification and Karaf versions
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 15:48:46 GMT
Karaf is not really tied to the osgi version used underneath, especially as
they are backward compatible and I don't think upgrading the underlying
OSGi container warrant a new major release which is very painful for
downstream projects.  I think a Karaf 3.1 would be sufficient for including
the new osgi version.

Ftr, I'm still thinking about create a 2.3 branch in the near future to
backport some new features that came into 3.x, including the upgrade to
osgi 4.3 to the 2.x branch, but leaving all disruptive features around the
maven plugin, subshells, command renaming, etc...

Just my 2 cents.
