See the CHANGELOG.rst file to see what changed in previous releases.

iPOPO 0.5.5


The license of the iPOPO project is now an Apache License 2.0.


  • get_*_service_reference*() methods have a default LDAP filter set to None. Only the service specification is required, event if set to None.

  • Added a context use_service(context, svc_ref), that allows to consume a service in a with block:

    from pelix.utilities import use_service
    with use_service(bundle_context, svc_ref) as svc:

    Service will be released automatically.


  • Added the Handler Factory pattern : all instance handlers are created by their factory, called by iPOPO according to the handler IDs found in the factory context. This will simplify the creation of new handlers.

  • Added a context use_ipopo(context), that allows to use the iPOPO service in a with block:

    from pelix.ipopo.constants import use_ipopo
    with use_ipopo(bundle_context) as ipopo:
       ipopo.instantiate('my.factory', 'my.instance', {})

    The iPOPO service will be released automatically.


  • Added the ConfigurationAdmin service
  • Added the FileInstall service
