Many thanks to the Camel community for making this release possible.

Two days ago the Camel PMC voted another one of the very active and talented contributors to become a committer.

Bilgin Ibryam was actively involved with Apache Camel for about 6 month contributing code and helping other users. Bilgin proactively assigned reported issues to himself and took them to resolution acting as a committer. He is already a committer for the Apache OFBiz project and know how Apache works. In recognition of his work, the PMC only had to take care of the simple task of making that official. Today, Bilgin got his committer account setup, concluding the process of becoming the newest Camel rider. Stay tuned for his first official commit.

On behalf of the Camel PMC, welcome aboard Bilgin and keep up the great work!

The Camel PMC is glad to announce the availability of Apache Camel 2.7.5.
This release resolved 44 JIRA issues (mostly bugs) reported by users.

The release is available to Download from Apache, and as well from Central Maven repo.
For the release notes we suggest to take a look at the release notes for the Camel 2.7.5 release.

Camel 2.7.5 is the last planned 2.7.x release and we stop maintaining this branch. You will may see a Camel 2.7.6 version if we need an really urgent patch (e.g. for a security vulnerability), but this is really unlikely.

The Camel Riders didn't want to close 2011 without one more release, the awaited camel-2.9.0. After a few last minute fixes we are glad to announce that Apache Camel 2.9.0 was officially released yesterday, hours before many champagne bottles were opened. The 2.9.0 release comes with another record 497 issues resolved, but this is not surprising as the community continues to grow and we lengthened the release cycle for minor releases.

The artifacts are now available in the Maven Central Repository and the official distribution is available for download from the Apache site and its mirrors. The new features, improvements and fixes are too many to mention here, so please check the release notes for details.

Many thanks to all the contributors. We wish you a happy and prosperous 2012!

The Camel PMC is glad to announce the availability of Apache Camel 2.8.3.
This release resolved over 60 JIRA issues (mostly bugs) reported by users.

The release is available to Download from Apache, and as well from Central Maven repo.
For the release notes we suggest to take a look at the current in-progress release notes for the Camel 2.8.3 Release

The Camel PMC is glad to announce the availability of Apache Camel 2.9.0-RC1.
This is only a release candidate for version 2.9, so we don't recommend adoption into production systems.

Due to some larger changes like core API refactorings, Spring dependency changes,
rewritten simple expression language, etc, we decided it would be good to provide a early
copy of version 2.9 so our users could try it out and report problems before they actually upgrade.

Please try it out and let us know if you have any issues (or if you think it's great)
and we'll make sure they are addressed in the full 2.9 release.

The release is available to Download from Apache, and as well from Central Maven repo.

Today Ioannis Cannellos joined the Camel Riders as the newest committer.

Ioannis has been very busy in the past months, with a lot of contributions to the project, in particular two new components, camel-jclouds and camel-krati. You may also bump into him on the mailing lists where he's helping out.

Ioannis is not new to the ASF, he's already a committer on two other projects often used in conjunction with Camel: Karaf and Servicemix. His expertise is a great addition to our team.

On behalf of the Camel PMC, Ioannis, welcome aboard!

Happy Birthday Camel

This month we celebrate the 4 year birthday of the Apache Camel project. Camel was conceived as a sub project from Apache ActiveMQ project.

In fact the first commit of the project to Apache was done by one of its founders, James Strachan, on March 19th 2007.

The first public announcement of the project as posted on a blog by James on May 15th 2007, in his blog titled
Enterprise Integration Patterns in Java.

Apache Camel 1.0 was released on the 2th of July 2007 according to the timestamp in the central Maven repository.
What strikes me as really impressive with the 1.0 release was the envision of its founders to emphasize on making
integration easier using EIPs and DSLs. The first release of Camel had its powerful Java DSL and Spring XML from
the very beginning.

Over the course of time the Camel team have released many Camel releases.
A total of 11 release of the Camel 1.x series.
And so far 10 releases (and 3 milestones) of the Camel 2.x series.

The project has since grown tremendously and today is one of the most popular integration frameworks out there.

In January 2009 the project became a top level project at Apache.

It is believed that one of the first public presentation of Apache Camel at a major conference took place in 2008
where Bruce Snyder presented ActiveMQ and Camel at several conferences.

Since then Camel have appeared in many public presentation, both at major conferences, JUGs and other events.
We do have a number of links to those presentations at the Articles page.

The popularity of the Camel project keep rising and at the end of last year, the Camel in Action book went into print.
Having a book published by the well respected Manning publication is a testimony of the popularity of the project.

Today the Camel team is busy finalizing on the last bits for the upcoming Apache Camel 2.8.0 release.

Happy birthday Camel.

The Apache Camel community grew its ranks again this week. Thanks to their high quality contributions the Camel PMC voted Dan Kulp, Jean-Baptiste Onofré and David Valeri to join as new committers.

Dan does not require any introduction, he is one of the main committers to Apache CXF and is helping us not only with the camel-cxf component, but many other improvements related to OSGi and better and faster builds (yes, badly needed).

Jean-Baptiste helped with a lot of improvements around OSGi and helped our community for a long time with fixes and releases in projects that Camel relies on, such as Apache Karaf, but also projects that rely on Camel, like Apache Servicemix.

David's contributions were mostly in the area of security and fixes around the http transport in camel-http and camel-jetty. David is a CXF committer as well.

On behalf of the Camel PMC, many thanks for your contributions and welcome to the community!

The Apache Camel community recently grew its ranks with a couple of new committers. Although Camel has been a mature project for a while now, the community keeps growing as is as strong as ever. The great thing though is that our committers keep showing the same dedication, although (I know) they have other commitments as well.

Today I have the pleasure to announce that Johan Edstrom, who became a committer some six months ago was invited to join the Apache Camel PMC. He demonstrated that he is both willing and capable of taking responsibilities that go beyond the code and involve the future of the project and the growth of the community. Johan, many thanks for your involvement and for the example you set. I am personally very proud of the whole community for its support and for being able to attract such rare individuals.

Among the issues resolved in this release you can find (in no particular order):
