A new Apache Karaf version is available. If it’s mainly a bug fixes release, it includes some small enhancements.
Especially, we added a completer for shell aliases. It means that you add a new command alias in etc/shell.init.script, the TAB key will look for aliases in addition of pure commands.
Another interesting enhancement used in Apache CXF and Apache Camel is that the feature Maven plugin now “embeds” the Karaf core features. It means that it’s no more required to define <repository>mvn:org.apache.karaf.assemblies.features/standard/2.2.2/xml/features</repository> in your features descriptors: it’s the default.
You can take a look on the complete release note.
I’m going to update Karaf related projects (CXF, Camel, ServiceMix, TIF, TSF) and focus on Apache Karaf Cellar 2.2.1 version 😉
