We are pleased to announce the release 1.7.0 of Camel Quarkus! Here are the highlights.

Camel 3.8.0 and Quarkus 1.12.0.Final

$ java -jar target/*-runner.jar

and now since Camel Quarkus 1.7.0, you have to use

$ java -jar target/quarkus-app/quarkus-run.jar

Your Docker files and deployment scripts might need an adjustment when you upgrade to Camel Quarkus 1.7.0.

You can go back to the original behavior by setting quarkus.package.type=legacy-jar in your
