The Kamakura release of EdgeX is the 10th community release by the Foundry and also marks the project turning five years old.
As well as adding key new features relating to metrics collection, security and configurability, EdgeX 2.2 provides brand new services for connecting to and controlling a range of IP cameras. This enables exciting new computer vision use cases where video streams can be delivered to AI/ML engines to produce yet more sensor data for EdgeX to collect, analyze and process.
The EdgeX Foundry 2.2 (Kamakura) release includes the following major changes and additions since EdgeX 2.1:
EdgeX Foundry 2.2 is a minor release and is therefore backwardly compatible with the previous EdgeX 2.0 Ireland and 2.1 Jakarta releases.
For a more detailed description of the changes and updates to the EdgeX Kamakura release, please see Release Notes
In order to provide EdgeX consumers with a predictable foundation to base their commercial offerings, a goal of the Foundry is to outline key release themes at least 12 months in advance and to plan features to be delivered in a given release 6 months in advance.
Release cadence is bi-annually, with targets of April and October as release months. The release history as well as the named releases currently scheduled are shown below.
