  • A LGPL licensed artifact was discovered to be in a Apache Camel dependency which was included in the ActiveMQ 5.4.0, 5.4.1, 5.4.2 and 5.5.0 releases. We have removed the release from the Apache download server and released ActiveMQ 5.4.3 and 5.5.1 with the artifacts removed.
  • ActiveMQ 5.6 is about to be released.
  • Apollo 1.0 is approaching completion. Several betas have been released and it has shown to be stable and easy to manage. The Apollo messaging engine will likely be the path used to implement ActiveMQ 6.0.
