The newest release of Apache Camel is now available for download! Grab the binary release as a tarball or a zip now. It includes a big list of improvements and new features driven from the Camel community. This is a great testament to the continuing widespread adoption of Camel.
Just a few of my favorite items include:
- Camel's Maven archetypes
- clarification of the recursive property on the file component
- The use of exclusive locks for reading a file to prevent reading a file before it's fully written
- Some new options on the tracer
- The Eclipse Templates for Camel (nice work Jon)
There are many, many more items in the full list of improvements, take a peek.
A couple weeks ago I spoke about Camel at the Colorado Software Summit and received a lot of wonderful feedback. Folks at the conference really enjoyed the session, so much that three separate people began writing Camel routes after seeing my session and were really enjoying its simplicity.
