There is a new draft for the OSGi Core 4.3 release: http://www.osgi.org/download/osgi-core-4.3-early-draft1.pdf. This draft contains:
- RFC 138 which describes running multiple frameworks in a single VM.
- RFC 151 updates the core framework API to include Java 5 generics.
- RFC 154 introduces generic capabilities and requirements to the OSGi resolver.
- RFC 144 Configuration Admin Extension. The extensions described in the RFP are twofold. The Configuration Permissions are extended. Additionally, with RFC 144 it is now possible for multiple bundles to consume a single Configuration Object. So it means that with that it's possible to share a common Configuration Object across many bundles! This is one thing that I've been looking for a long time, and it will benefit many OSGi Core and Enterprise users as well...
