Version 3.0 of the open source Apache Geronimo Java application server has been released with official support for version 7 of the programming language. The server has been fully certified for Java EE 6 since November 2011 and version 4.3 of the OSGi industry standard is now also supported. The developers have updated components of various other Apache technologies such as the BVal Bean Validation implementation and the Derby database.

Currently, the new version of Geronimo is only available in packages that use the Tomcat servlet container, with Tomcat 7.0.27 being the version used, while Jetty assemblies are planned to follow in forthcoming bugfix versions as test runs appear to have been unsuccessful so far. The same applies to support for IPv6 and the Geronimo plugin for Eclipse Indigo, which the developers also plan to implement in later bugfix versions.

The developers report a total of over 450 fixed bugs, more than 100 improvements and just under 50 new features. More information on all of these is available in the release notes. Apache Geronimo is released under the Apache 2.0 licence.
