Happy New Year and 2019 is going to be a special year for Apache Camel, with Camel 3 in the works.

Hello Camelers,

We are starting the work on Apache Camel 3. We are working at multiple levels to improve Camel and introduce new features.

The first work has actually started by Guillaume Nodet in the start of October, where he jump started by cleaning up the codebase, removed deprecated code and components, improving the routing engine and other internals in the core. His work is published on the sandbox/3.x branch. We plan to use his work as the baseline for the actual Camel 3. Andrea has helped by aligning this branch with all the changes from the master branch (2.x) so its fully up to date. The intention is to switch over the sandbox/3.x branch as the new master branch, so we call can start working on that branch and being able to add new features, components etc. (as always) for Camel 3.

For 2.x users we will create a 2.x branch where we plan to do 1 or 2 more last 2.x releases, eg 2.24 and 2.25, before 3.0 is ready and released.

Here in the beginning of the Camel 3 work is to continue the work from Guillaume Nodet and finish up the cleanup of the codebase, modularize the camel-core, etc.

We invite community users and any Camel committers and developers who has interest to help with the Camel 3 work. We have talked about doing a number of milestone releases of 3.x that can help give feedback to us quicker and faster. For example any Camel users of 2.x can try to upgrade and use the 3.0 milestone releases to report back their findings.

Camel 3 is planned to be a time boxed release to avoid it dragging out “forever”, and with a bit of good luck we will have Camel 3 released after the summer 2019.

We will keep the community posted on the progress, and as always we love contribution and any feedback.

Exciting times ahead!

Announcing Apache Camel K

After some months of brainstorming with the community and a bit more than
one month of development, our Camel K project has reached a good level of
stability and Nicola Ferraro published the first blog post about it yesterday.

For those of you who haven't heard of Camel K, it's now a subproject of
Apache Camel (https://github.com/apache/camel-k) with the target of
building a lightweight runtime for running integration code directly on
cloud platforms like Kubernetes and OpenShift. It was inspired by
"serverless" principles and it will also target Knative shortly.

With the exception of the runtime code, that remains the good old Apache Camel
Java framework with 200+ components and full of EIPs, most of the
"operator" code in Camel K is written in Go. But the new language has not
stopped many adventurer Camel developers that have actively contributed to
the project during last month. We still have a long way in front of us,
let's continue to make Camel awesome!

So, please.. check the project out! Spread it to the world!
And provide your feedback, so we can make it always better. We love any
kind of contribution!

For more details then check out the blog article by Nicola, and watch the 7
minute video, showing Camel K in action.

The current Apache Camel website and documentation is currently undergoing work to be rewamped and updated for a modern website.

This work has been underway for a longer time. We kicked off the work by migrating the documentation of every Camel component
from the wiki system 
to the source code as ascii doc files. This allowed us during the build of the Apache Camel project to automatic
keep parts of the documentation 
up-to-date with the source code, such as when new options is added to components.
We then moved on migrate all the data formats, languages, and the EIP patterns.
This has been substantial work, as if you were to print all the Camel documentation then it would be more than 3000 sheets of papers.


At this point of time, we are about to draft up a new table of content (TOC) for the new Apache Camel documentation and user guide.
With the new TOC we 
will then re-work all the user guide documentation to be updated and focus on modern development with Camel.
In doing so we will grab the good parts of the existing (older) documentation, and in places needed, we will rewrite the documentation.


The new website and documentation has a new build system that is also worked. When this  system is ready we will have a new
staging URL where we will regularly 
publish the content, so users can follow the progress.

 
Because the new documentation will be in the source code and in ascii doc format, then it's easier for Camel users to contribute and help
- you can simply just 
submit patches as GitHub PRs.

Have patience with us, as it may take a couple of months for us to be ready to publish the staging URL.

We anticipate to have a new website and documentation ready in Q3 2018 (after the holiday season).


On behalf of the Camel PMC,
Claus Ibsen
