Apache Geronimo Board Report

The Apache Geronimo Project has released Geronimo 2.0.1 in August. Our initial attempt to release 2.0 was aborted due to a late discovery of a security problem. Given that the release was in process we simply aborted 2.0 and corrected the problem and released as 2.0.1.


  • Geronimo
    2.0.1 was released in August
    2.0.2 is in process for release in mid-October.

Much of current trunk development is concerned with improving runtime server modularity. We are also working to provide "prepackaged" integrations of other apache projects running in Geronimo, including Roller and Apache Directory.



2.0.1 versions of the geronimo-transaction and geronimo-connector components were released.
2.0.2 release candidates of the components are being voted on at present.


Is nearing a release of 2.0. Testing of the application on Geronimo 2.0.2 has been productive and a stable release is in order.


Geronimo Eclipse Plugin 2.0.0 was released in September.


Genesis 1.2 was released in August.


XBean 3.2 was released in October. Xbean-spring is seeing wider adoption in other apache projects such as Apache Directory.

Multiple spec versions were released in August: JACC, JSP, Servlet, geronimo-schema-j2ee, and geronimo-schema-jee
