Release Notes Knopflerfish 2.3.0Minor release of Knopflerfish. Released 2009-04-16
Framework (Core), updated to version 4.1.1
- CPA - Conditional Permission Admin
We now implement the things we were missing in the framework,
Conditional Permissions and certificates. There are some internal
things missing, logging of some faults, documentation of new features
and a connection to a keystore for validating certificates. This will
improve in the near future.
NOTE! You can not use SUN JDK 1.5.0_16 if you want to handle certificates. There is a bug in the CodeSource API.
Added support for handling cases where classes on the boot class path
needs access to other boot classes, even when they're not exposed
directly via OSGi boot delegation.
Since this is the default, the property org.osgi.framework.bootdelegation is now unset in the included props.xargs
See the property org.knopflerfish.framework.strictbootclassloading in the framework readme.txt for more info
- Android / Dalvik
- Also added support for "dexified" Android bundles, see http://knopflerfish.blogspot.com/2009/01/knopflerfish-on-androiddalvik-vm.html
- Preferences 2.0.3
- Remove preferences for a bundle when it is uninstalled. Re-factored parts of the code to make it reusable when implementing other kinds of storage. The local, file based, implementation now throws BackingStoreException when a file write operation fails.
- Log 2.0.2
Improved error handling when receiving broken configurations.
- Desktop Bundle 2.3.1
- The preferences tab now offers the sync and flush operations when right clicking on a node in the preferences tree.
- Bundlerepository 2.0.3
- Blacklisted repository at update.cainenable.org
Misc, start scripts, build system etc
- Build System
The ant include file "bundlebuild_include.xml" that all KF-ant build
files imported using an external entity is now replaced with a
proper include file named "bundlebuild.xml" that can be included
using the ant 1.6+ command <import file="bundlebuild.xml">
Upgrade instructions for users of the old
"bundlebuild_include.xml"-file are available in that file. I.e., in
The ant task bundle_locator now accepts a comma separated list of bundle names to locate. Also improved the logging and error handling.
The ant task bundle-info can now add "uses" directives to packages in the Export-Packages manifest header. This is turned on by default in bundlebuild.xml (to disable it set the ant property "bundleinfo.uses" to false before importing bundlebuild.xml).
When bundle-info detects a missing import it will now trigger a build exception (may be disabled by setting the ant property "bundleinfo.failOnImports" to false before importing bundlebuild.xml).
When bundle-info detects an export of package that is not provided by the bundle it will now trigger a build exception (may be disabled by setting the ant property "bundleinfo.failOnExports" to false before importing bundlebuild.xml).
Ant version 1.7 or later is need if you want to build the test code, otherwise only ant version 1.6 or later is required.
