The Jakarta release of EdgeX is very significant for the project because it is the first EdgeX release to offer long term support (LTS) from its community. It is a stabilization release of the previous EdgeX 2.0 (Ireland) release which provided a number of architectural advancements including a message bus for improved QoS between microservices and a new set of extensible APIs.
The EdgeX Foundry 2.1 (Jakarta) is the community's first minor release of the second major release (Ireland). This version of EdgeX builds on a foundation of over four years of intense development and real-world customer deployments and includes the following major changes/additions since EdgeX version 1:
EdgeX Foundry 2.1 is a minor release and is therefore backwardly compatible with the previous EdgeX 2.0 Ireland release.
For a more detailed description of the changes and updates to the EdgeX Jakarta release, please see Release Notes
In order to provide EdgeX consumers with a predictable foundation to base their commercial offerings on it is the goal 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.
