Announcing two DAML-S Updates
=============================

DAML-S 0.9 Beta Release
-----------------------
A new version of DAML-S, version 0.9, is now available in "beta release"
here:

    http://www.daml.org/services/daml-s/0.9/

This release will be labelled as "Beta" for 2 - 3 weeks, during which
time we will finalize several files and make any minor corrections that
are identified.

In this release, we are providing parallel sets of ontology and example
files in DAML+OIL and in OWL.  The Grounding sub ontology has been
extended to allow for more general and flexible use with a wider variety
of WSDL-enabled services, and a number of minor improvements have been
made to the Process sub ontology and the code examples.  In addition,
new Web pages have been created, for Use cases, Code examples, and
Tools, and will be populated over time with contributions from the
DAML-S user community.

Comments are invited on this list (www-ws@w3.org).

New DAML-S Website design
-------------------------
The DAML-S Web site has been redesigned, to provide improved resources
and facilities for sharing resources across the DAML-S community.  The
new site includes details on:

* Coalition Publications
* Press Releases and Event News
* A Tool archive
* A Repository for Examples, Service Description fragments etc
* Suggested use cases
* Community publications
* Links to the WS Mailing List Archive

The location of the DAML-S site is still:

	http://www.daml.org/services/

For this site to work, we need tools, examples, use-cases, DAML-S
related papers, etc to share.  If there are any resources that would be
of use to members of the DAML-S community, then please share these by
mailing details to the Mailing List (www-ws@w3.org) or submitting them
to the DAML-S site.  Submission is currently email based; but an
automated (and web-services based, naturally) interface should be
available soon.

Comments are invited on this list (www-ws@w3.org).
