A 6.2.0-RC3 build is now available. It includes some important fixes to the jar packaging goals of the bnd-maven-plugin.

Hello everyone,

A word on the release process. We’ve had a few hiccups due largely to a change in JFrog which is preventing some of the traditional conveniences that were in place (we’re unclear if this is a bug or a feature.)

For example, you used to have the option in the bndtools RC update site to view a list of all the RCs. However, we can’t seem to be able to achieve this anymore.

As an intermediate solution we’ve been forced to only provide the latest RC (currently RC3.)

Thanks for your understanding while we try to figure this out.

A 6.2.0-RC4 build is now available. It includes some important stability and deadlock fixes for issues found late in the release candidate cycle.
