Welcome to another edition of the JBoss Weekly Editorial where we bring you up to speed with all that has been happening across the JBoss Communities. We begin this week with a big announcement so lets get started with ....
The Arrival of WildFly 10 Final
There is a saying that "Good things come to those who wait" and this is certainly true for those who have been waiting on the WildFly 10 release. WildFly 10 Final in all its goodness has arrived and is now available for download from the usual place, so what are you waiting for? If you want more information on the release then check out Jason's and/or Dimitris' announcement.
For the last couple of months Ioannis has been experimenting with Jenkins to work out how it could be integrated into a Docker/Kubernetes environment. The culmination of this effort has been the creation of a Kubernetes Workflow Plugin, a plugin to Jenkins that provided support for many Kubernetes concepts including pods, build images, service accounts, volumes and secrets.
Cassandra Returns to Infinispan
The release of Infinispan 6.0 came with some significant changes including to their Cache Store SPI. The unfortunate outcome of this change was that some of the "extra" cache stores that had previously been developed were no longer able to work within Infinispan 6.0, the Cassandra Cache Store being one example. Happily this is no longer the case as Jakub Markos stepped forward and took on the task of updating the integration so that it is now compatible with the new SPI.
Hibernate Community Newsletter
The second Hibernate Community newsletter has just been released, this forms part of a series of articles that are focussing on any blog posts, forum discussions or StackOverflow questions that are relevant to the Hibernate Community.
Validating Camel Endpoints from Source
The fabric8 team have recently released a new maven plugin that will allow you to validate your Camel endpoint configuration from the source code, ensuring that you catch any errors before they get deployed into your environment. For more information check out Claus' post where he includes a video to demonstrate how the plugin can be run from within your IDE.
