[equinox-dev] How to find the newest equinox release?

I currently have problems with Apache Karaf when switching to equinox.

See:
http://apaste.info/btL

It happens with the default equinox that karaf ships which is 3.10.2 provided by birt in maven central.

I looked into the equinox project pages to find a newer release:
http://download.eclipse.org/equinox/

The latest stable release seems to be mars2 which leads to:
http://download.eclipse.org/equinox/drops/R-Mars.2-201602121500/download.php?dropFile=org.eclipse.osgi_3.10.102.v20160118-1700.jar

Unfortunately this release does not seem to be available in maven central at all.
The latest release there seems to be
<dependency>
ÂÂÂÂ<groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
ÂÂÂÂ<artifactId>org.eclipse.osgi</artifactId>
ÂÂÂÂ<version>3.10.101.v20150820-1432</version>
</dependency>

So this one seems to be provided by tycho now? Are these releases by birt and tycho guaranteed to reflect the real equinox releases or are they maybe patching equinox?
Is there any better way? Does equinox have any maven repo where it puts its official releases? I think there were discussions about that a while ago but the discussion was kind of stuck at some point.

Another question is about the included felix resolver. The last time I looked into this the resolver sources were copied into the equinox sources. They were not equal to any
release of the felix resolver. Instead as far as I can remember the changes were cherry picked from some of the resolver commits. This makes it really difficult to tell how equinox behaves.
Is there any improvement in sight?
