What’s new in 5.0.0?
WSO2 Carbon Kernel 5.0.0 will be the core of the next-generation WSO2 Carbon platform. It is completely rearchitected from the ground up with the latest technologies and patterns. Additionally, the Carbon Kernel is now a very lightweight and thin general-purpose OSGi runtime specializing in hosting servers, providing key functionality for server developers. The result is a streamlined and even more powerful middleware platform than ever before. This kernel will be the base for new carbon platform on which all the products will be built. There are bunch of new products coming up based on this kernel. WSO2 Microservices Server is one of the very first product to be released on top of this kernel.
