We just released Apache ActiveMQ 5.6.0. It was a long-awaited maintenance release, but however there are a few very significant new features that was worth waiting for. Those include a new LevelDB store, MQTT and Stomp 1.1 protocols support and self-balancing cluster clients, to name a few. I already written about clustering here and there sure will be a lot of things to write about these other features as well in coming days.
Also, next week I’ll be at CamelOne in Boston and JEEConf In Kiev (a bit too much traveling for my taste, but there you go). I’ll talk about Enterprise deployment of ActiveMQ using Fuse Fabric (a topic already covered here in a nutshell) and Apache Apollo, the next generation of the broker. All these projects that are coming in the pipeline are pushing the possibilities of our integration infrastructure one step further. It will allow people to do complex deployments easier and connect to the infrastructure from virtually everywhere. It was a very exciting first half of the year, and it looks like things are going to be even more interesting going forward.
