s/are announcing/announce/
A more usual wording is "We are pleased to announce ..."

This is the software driving the W3C link checker service
Previously bundled with the W3C Markup Validator suite, checklink is
now available for download as a free, standalone tool which can be
installed locally either as a commandline utility or a web-based service.
