The primary purpose of this release is to introduce Multitons and a new web UI to Eclipse Kura. Multitons are a feature that will allow creation of multiple instances of Kura services which will enhance the flexibility of the Eclipse Kura framework. The new web UI will bring the configuration UI in compliance with EPL. It also leverages Bootstrap making the UI more responsive to mobile platforms.
Along with these features, the Eclipse Kura team is using this release to increase visibility into the development process. Development activity can now be tracked in Github Issues. In particular, the 2.0.0 milestone can be used to track issues for this release . We are also making improvements to our documentation and development environment.
