The WSO2 Registry team is pleased to announce the 1.0 release of the 
WSO2 Registry.

Introduction
============

The WSO2 Registry is a hub for managing data in a web-friendly and 
community-enabled way.  It was built with enterprise metadata for SOA in 
mind, but really it's up to you - the Registry can hold any kind of 
"stuff" including images, service descriptions, text files, office 
documents... and every resource you put in the Registry becomes a center 
for social activity.

Eschewing the complexity (and WS-* focus) of specs like UDDI, our 
Registry uses the Atom Publishing Protocol (via Apache Abdera) to offer 
a standard and RESTfully simple remote interface, which can be accessed 
easily by custom code, feed readers, and even browsers.

The Registry has been designed both to encourage "grass-roots" community 
around your data and also to allow for IT-friendly governance.  A full 
feature list follows. We hope you'll find many uses for it, and that 
you'll share them with us as we work to make it even better!
