In the last week we continued our work on JDK11 migration, moving OpenBMP functionality into OpenNMS, ToS/QoS flow aggregation, Antora documentation, a new configuration API/implementation, and plenty of bug fixes.

Release Roadmap

February Releases

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

Currently we expect a Horizon 27 point release.

Next Horizon: 28 (March 2021)

The next major Horizon release will be Horizon 28.
It is currently expected to be released during the March release cycle.

It will primarily contain enhancements to flow processing to handle ToS/QoS (DSCP) aggregation, as well as a refactor of our BGP Monitoring Protocol support to bring it in-core, rather than relying on an external OpenBMP instance.

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.

Until Next Time…

If there’s anything you’d like me to talk about in a future OOH, or you just have a comment or criticism you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to say hi.
