In the last week we did more work on JDK 11 transition, QoS/ToS flow aggregation, Antora documentation, configuration APIs, OpenBMP, and more.

Release Roadmap

February Releases

The next OpenNMS release day is February 2nd, 2021.

Currently we expect a Horizon 27 point release.

Next Horizon: 28 (Q1 2021)

The next major Horizon release will be Horizon 28.

We're still in the development cycle for it, but at a high level it is expected to contained our finished work moving OpenBMP's functionality into OpenNMS, as well as enhancements to handle ToS/QoS in flows.

Next Meridian: 2021 (Q2 2021)

With the recent release of Meridian 2020, plans are still tentative.
However, the current plan is that Meridian 2021 will be based on Horizon 28.

We'll know more once development plans start to firm up.
