A few days ago Google Summer of Code announced that Apache Software Foundation is again elected to participate as a mentor organization. We are looking for ideas, students and mentors willing to participate in GSoC 2020. Anyone in the Camel community can propose an idea, look at the JIRA issues labeled gsoc2020 or create new issues with ideas and set the gsoc2020 label. Have a look at the Mentor guide to understand the role of the mentor and the obligations you would take on.
As previous year Apache Camel is part of ApacheCon 2020 in North America. This year the conference will be held at the Sheraton, in New Orleans, September 28th through October 2nd, 2020. The call for presentations for ApacheCon North America 2020 is now open and the wider Camel community members are encouraged to submit. Look for the Camel/Integration track when submitting. We’re most interested to see talks that offer a learning experience to the attendees, so talks that present new parts of the Camel ecosystem (Camel K, Camel Quarkus, Camel Kafka Connector), talks showing off lessons learned, use cases, and visions on where software integration is heading in the future.
The Camel community announces the immediate availability of Camel 2.25.0, a new minor release with 112 improvements and fixes. Please note that Camel 2.25.x is the last minor release for Camel 2. The artifacts are published and ready for you to download from the Central Maven repository. For more details please take a look at the resolved issues. Many thanks to all who made this release possible. On behalf of the Camel PMC, Gregor Zurowski
