April 2012 Board report

Apache Aries delivers a set of pluggable Java components enabling an enterprise OSGi application programming model.

Releases

After the significant number of releases last quarter there were no new releases this quarter. Work is going on in a branch in preparation for a 1.0 release. Bundles and packages will be brought up from 0.x to 1.0 to better reflect the stability and level of confidence we have in them. This will also bring our versioning policy inline with that described in the OSGi Alliance semantic versioning whitepaper.
