Why two releases one after another?

Camel Quarkus 1.2.0 was scheduled - with some reasonable time reserve - to be included in the Quarkus Platform release 1.9.0. The next day after we opened the voting, we realized that Camel 3.6.0 is going to be released in the coming days and that it could actually catch Quarkus 1.9.0 too. Therefore we did one more release upgrading to Camel 3.6.0, so that the freshly released Quarkus Platform 1.9.0 contains the newest and greatest Camel.

What’s new

First of all, Camel 3.6.0 alone brings a lot of improvements and optimizations that make Camel Quarkus even faster and more effective than before.

New extensions and extensions newly supporting native mode

There are 10 new extensions:

  • AWS XRay
  • HBase

With Camel Quarkus 1.3.0, we got very close to supporting all components required by Camel K.
