Release Notes Knopflerfish 2.0.1The Release Notes are included in the KF distributions.
This is the first bugfix release after Knopflerfish 2.0. Here follows a breakdown of the most important changes. === Framework (R4.core) === * Boot Delegation This release includes support for the property org.osgi.framework.bootdelegation By setting this property you control what class should be loaded from the system class loader. Setting org.osgi.framework.bootdelegation to say "org.knopflerfish.*" will cause the framework to try to load all class names matching that pattern using the system class loader. If this fails the framework will try to load the class as any other class. In earlier versions the system behaved as if this property was set to "*", that is the framework all ways checked if the system class loader could load a given class. This property is set to * by default to be backward compliant. More information on this can be found in the R4 core specs section 3.8.3. * Import Resolution Optional An issue with imported packages marked as optional has been fixed. * Limitations As was the case in 2.0, all OSGi R4 features except those listed below are implemented: * Signed bundles are not supported yet. * Conditional Permission Admin is not included. To use the extension bundle support you need to use a wrapper script that will restart framework when needed. An example shell-script is included (osgi/kf2). === Services (R4.cmpn) === * User Admin service Added persistence. The path to the file where user admin data is stored can be set with the system property org.knopflerfish.useradmin.store If this is not set, the bundle's data storage area is used, meaning that starting the platform with -init purges the data. One can also use the system property org.knopflerfish.useradmin.oldstore to define a path that is used to read the data if the org.knopflerfish.useradmin.store property is set to a path that does not exist yet. This can be used to move the store to a new location. The persistence can be turned off by setting the system property org.knopflerfish.useradmin.dontsave to true. * Declarative services Fixed a bug where, under certain circumstances, null was passed to bind/unbind methods.
