March 2011 Board report

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

New releases

These bug fix releases have been completed since the last board report:

  • Aries Application 0.2.1

  • Aries Blueprint 0.2.1

  • Aries Blueprint 0.3.1

Release by bundle

After some significant investigation and discussion, we recently concluded a vote to switch to a release-by-bundle scheme. This is to enable us to follow the guidance set out in the OSGi Alliance Semantic Versioning white paper.
