I am starting a new project and I would like to know whether or not I can count on Picketlink as a security provider solution.
I was following 3.0.0 version evolution and now it has been re-versioned to 2.5.X. What does it mean?
Basically we renamed the 3.0 version to 2.5 No other changes made. This is because of the following reasons:
a) IDM component was released 1.x. It never saw 2.x. Hence no point in releasing it as 3.x
b) Federation component was released as 2.x and what we were planning in 3.0 is compatible with 2.x. That is why we are moving PL3 as 2.5
c) All the other components are just additions to the 2.1 series.
This is also to keep it in line with the PicketLink 2.1.x series currently supported in JBoss EAP. An upgrade of PicketLink will be minimally challenging to our customers, if we have the version at 2.5.
We do not want to add in a lot of confusion to our users and customers.
So functionalitywise PicketLink 3.0 is the same as proposed 2.5
