This page summarises the Virgo plan and notes design ideas for future Virgo features.
The following plan is subject to change and depends on how much resource is available as the project evolves.
3.6.0 (Sky) Release
- Java 7 support
- Support Java enterprise APIs (EJB, CDI, JPA, JSF, Web)
- New web admin console
3.7.0 (Steel) Release
- TBD, but see the Steel bugtrain bug 396813.
To accommodate simultaneous releases of Virgo runtime, OSGi Web Container runtime, and Virgo tooling, we are branding each release with the name of a colour, including old releases.
|Brand||Runtime||Web Container||Eclipse IDE Tooling|
|Fern||SpringSource dm Server 1.0||-||-|
|Emerald||SpringSource dm Server 2.0||OSGi Web Container 1.0||-|
|Cornflower||Virgo 2.1||Gemini Web 1.1||-|
|Maya||Virgo 3.0||Gemini Web 2.0||-|
|Bondi||Virgo 3.5||Gemini Web 2.1||Virgo IDE 3.5|
|Sky||Virgo 3.6||Gemini Web 2.2||-|
|Steel||Virgo 3.7||Gemini Web 2.2 or 2.3||-|
Note 2: the SpringSource dm Server releases are shades of green because of the SpringSource branding. Virgo has cornflower blue in its logo and admin console styling, so we chose shades of blue for Virgo releases.
Support for the OSGi Subsystems specification is deferred indefinitely (rationale), except for generalising the InstallArtifact tree to a DAG which was implemented in Virgo 3.5.0 (see the Kernel Enhancements section of the Virgo 3.5.0 release notes).
