- Or at the very first 1.0 release
Well, as of July 2nd 2012 Apache Camel 1.0 was released and published to Maven Central exactly 5 years ago.
So lets celebrate the birthday of Apache Camel today, first by looking back at how ahead of the curve the very first apache camel release was. See my blog about it here.
|Apache Camel 1.0 Release|
Just to complete the bullets, the first commit was done by one of the founders, James Strachan (also the co-creator of Groovy), on March 19th 2007. And its no wonder that it was James who made the first public announcement of Apache Camel on his blog on May 15th 2007. And 3 months later as we know it, Camel 1.0 was released on July 2th 2007.
- A total of 11 releases in the Camel 1.x series.
- And so far 23 releases (and 3 milestones, and 1st RCs) of the Camel 2.x series.
The project has grown tremendously and today is one of the most popular integration frameworks out there.

All the sessions from 2012 were recorded, and you can find the videos to watch on your leisure. At CamelOne 2012 we had a sneak birthday celebration of Apache Camel, by having a Camel cake.

Today the Camel team is busy finalizing on the last bits for the upcoming Apache Camel 2.10 release.

Curator's Note: I found a really interesting program on real Camels as well! ;)
