This release of Apache Karaf is based off of the 2.2.x series branch, representing an update to Apache Karaf 2.2.10. It contains bug fixes identified in the prior release, and introduces improvements including; repaired command history, allowing LDAP login module to properly pick up keystore and/or truststore, and a fix for when Karaf scripts contain spaces in paths.
To help make the transition from previous Apache Karaf 2.2.x releases to 2.2.11 easier we've put together a table of changed dependencies which you can view here. For more information please see the release notes.
For those whom have been keeping track, this Karaf release's wine was Bersano Costalunga Barbera D'asti 2008. Which I've not been able to taste as I'm currently on the road on client site. Upon my return I believe that bottle will find itself being served promptly. As to music I enjoyed listening to Rush albums - they're finally inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame!
Now that this patch release is out, I can't wait for the up coming 2.3.2, 2.4.0, and 3.0.0 kits - so much OSGi goodness!
