Knopflerfish Pro 5.1 released

We are happy to announce the release of Knopflerfish Pro 5.1, now available from the customer download site along-side with the KF Pro 5.1 version of Knopflerfish Pro Premium.

Knopflerfish Pro version 5.1 is the first minor release of Knopflerfish Pro implemented according to the OSGi Release 5 specification and includes several minor enhancements as well as all bug fixes made since KF Pro 5.0 was released. The 5.1 release also includes fixed related to Java 8 and Knopflerfish Pro 5.1 passes all tests on Java 7 and 8 as well as older Java versions, and embedded Java profiles.

The new key features in Knopflerfish Pro 5.1 are:
  • Support for starting from a single jar that includes all jars, xargs and property files needed to start the entire system
  • Knopflerfish framework can now be executed in read only mode, i.e. no files are written by the framework. This assumes bundles are installed as reference file URLs
  • UserAdmin is completely self-contained, i.e. no dependencies on KF specific bundles
  • CM's persistent storage has been made more robust and fault resilient
  • HTTP Server now handles chunked transfer encoding correctly
  • Minor fixes in SCR
  • Repository Commands supports -r flag which recursively finds and installs dependencies
  • Corrects issues in DMT Admin
  • New bundle icons for Appmanager and UI Packages, making it easier to spot them in the KF desktop
The open source Knopflerfish 5.1 is released at the same time at the Knopflerfish project: http://www.knopflerfish.org
