June 21th, 2017

Description
===========

Apache ServiceMix is a flexible, open-source integration container that
unifies the features and functionality of Apache ActiveMQ, Camel, CXF and
Karaf to provide a complete, enterprise-ready ESB powered by OSGi.

Issues
======

There are no outstanding issues requiring board attention.

Activity
========

The project focus of Apache ServiceMix is the assembly of the integration
container, the actual functionality is being maintained in related projects
like Apache Karaf, Apache CXF, Apache Camel and Apache ActiveMQ.

- We have prepared 2 releases of Apache ServiceMix: maintenance release 6.1.4
and next development release 7.0.1. We don't expect too much activiti on ServceMix 6
and we plan to transit in into EOL soon. In the new period we are going to focus on
the further development, stability and maintenance of ServiceMix 7. We are working on
new releases of ServiceMix 7 upgraded to the new dependency versions, especially
Apache Karaf 4.1.x and new Apache Camel versions.
- We have also released 2 sets of OSGi bundles and a new release of ServiceMix Specs.
We are currently working on new Bundles and Specs releases.
- Thanks to a contribution we did a big step in documentation improvement. The documentation
has been migrated into Asciidoc format and updated with the actual state of ServiceMix.
It should be integrated soon in our website.
- We are going to make a small refactoring of ServiceMix features to give them a separate
lifecycle (as ServiceMix Features) and provide better modularity and maintainability of
ServiceMix.
- Jean-Baptiste Onofré has submitted a new feature proposal. The new feature should extend
ServiceMix with ability to manage APIs. We are going to accept the initial contribution
and work on the new feature to provide it in one of the next releases.
