Subject [REPORT] Apache Karaf
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2017 13:56:24 GMT
## Description:
  - Apache Karaf provides a very modern and polymorphic container, 
multi-purpose (microservices, OSGi, etc) powered by OSGi.

## Issues:
  - As requested by the board, the Karaf PMC members decided to provide 
this new report to address board comments and questions. We want to 
apologize a new time for the delay to address those comments.

## Activity:
  - We are maintaining our pace in the release. The next major release 
is 4.1.0 on which we are working. This release will contain lot of 
feedback and contributions from the users.
  - We also continue to improve the Karaf subprojects, especially Karaf 
Decanter and Karaf Cellar. They both received important contributions 
from users.
  - We started a discussion on the dev mailing list about a new feature: 
Karaf Boot. The purpose is to simplify writing applications running on 
Karaf and provide easy way to package applications and Karaf all 
together. Due to the releases activity, the discussion was in stand-by, 
but we plan to restart the discussion and move forward about this.
  - We are beginning the work for a full JDK9 support, we expect to 
achieve the result in release 4.2.0
## Health report:
Apache Karaf has been receiving issue reports, patch submissions from 
down stream projects such as OpenHab and OpenDaylight.
These projects use Apache Karaf as their runtime environment, their 
contributions upstream to Karaf help strengthen and grow our broader 
It's also interesting to see that Karaf received contributions from 
other Apache community, like Apache Unomi.
Last month we quickly reacted to a CVE security request that we already 
fixed in last 4.0.8 release.
We are still watching for new potential committers and PMCs, extending 
our dev community.
Talks related to Karaf (directly or indirectly) were present during 
ApacheCon EU, promoting the project.
We also received new requests and feedback from new users (on the 
mailing list and/or Jira) showing a healthy user community.
We are trying to be active on related projects (Apache Felix, enRoute, 
...) to increase the Karaf adoption and grow the user community.
