[Ann] freebXML Registry version 3.0-alpha1 pre-release is available

The freebXML Registry team (formerly ebxmlrr team) has been busy
developing version 3.0-alpha1 of our software since September 15, 2003
when we released version 2.1-final1.

The new version provides most of the new features of the ebXML
Registry 3.0 specifications. Our freebXML Registry implementation and
the ebXML Registry 3.0 specifications are being developed in parallel
and with a tight symbiotic feedback loop connecting spec evolution
with implementation experience.

As we get close to meeting all our release criteria we would like to
try a new experiment. We invite the ebxmlrr-tech community to begin
using the pre-release 3.0-alpha1 software and providing the team with
feedback. As you report problems and make suggestions we will respond
with fixes and enhancements. After a suitable bake period (expected to
last a few weeks) we will make the official release. We expect that
this pre-release usage will enable the actual release to be of much
higher quality.


The 3.0-alpha1 currently is pre-release software and should NOT be
used for mission critical use.


That said, the release is quite functional and usable in its current
state for those that would like to get started with deploying version
3.0 ASAP.

They are also in the readme.txt file at the root level once you have
