Virgo 3.0 plan update

The feature to provision Virgo using p2 is taking a while to finalise. Also, it changes the directory layout of Virgo and so will need some changes to the tooling. So we've decided to defer the feature to a later release, possibly 3.5 to indicate the relatively big jump from 3.0.

This means the 3.0 release content is pretty much complete, so we just have to fix a few remaining bugs and polish the documentation before releasing, probably in July or August 2011.

See the plan on the Virgo wiki for details.

Upgrade from Spring DM to Gemini Blueprint (bug 317943) "


So Virgo 3.0 (and even 3.5!) will be released with Spring-DM 1.2.1. :-(

This would be devastating (at least to me) because a lot of the things that has been taken for granted with Blueprint (such as with Apache Felix Karaf's integrated Aries Blueprint) need to be tweaked or "downgraded".

Is it possible/recommended to manually install Gemini Blueprint / Aries Blueprint on top of Virgo ?

Yes, it's possible. Borislav has responded to your comment on the bug.
