Apache Camel 4 is on the way for 1st half in 2023. The need for Camel 4 is mainly driven by Java open source projects migrating from javax to jakarta APIs and to keep up with popular runtimes such as Spring Boot and Quarkus. Primary Goals Migrate from javax -> jakarta (JEE 10) Java 17 as minimum Spring Framework 6 Spring Boot 3 Quarkus 3 Release Goals Release only what is ready (JEE10 / Java17) This means that Camel components that are not ready (yet) will be dropped in a release until they are ready.
