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.
3.7.0 (Steel) Release
- Upgrade to Gemini Blueprint 2.0
- TBD, but see the Steel bugtrain bug 396813.
4.0.0 (Cobalt) Release
- Upgrade to Gemini Management 2.0
- Support Equinox unity (my suggestion, it may now be called something different) - see bug 404390
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||Blueprint||Management||Eclipse IDE Tooling|
|Fern||SpringSource dm Server 1.0||-||Spring DM 1.2.1||-||-|
|Emerald||SpringSource dm Server 2.0||OSGi Web Container 1.0||Spring DM 1.2.1||-||-|
|Cornflower||Virgo 2.1||Gemini Web 1.1||Spring DM 1.2.1||-||-|
|Maya||Virgo 3.0||Gemini Web 2.0||Spring DM 1.2.1||-||-|
|Bondi||Virgo 3.5||Gemini Web 2.1||Gemini Blueprint 1.0||Gemini Management 1.0||Virgo IDE 1.0|
|Sky||Virgo 3.6||Gemini Web 2.2||Gemini Blueprint 1.0.1||Gemini Management 1.0||Virgo IDE 1.0.1|
|Steel||Virgo 3.7||Gemini Web 2.2 or 2.3||Gemini Blueprint 1.0||Gemini Management 1.0||Virgo IDE 1.0.1|
|Cobalt||Virgo 4.0||Gemini Web 2.2 or 2.3||Gemini Blueprint 2.0||Gemini Management 2.0||Virgo IDE 1.0.1|
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).
