WSO2 Registry 1.1 released June 22, 2008

The WSO2 Registry team is pleased to announce the release of its
version 1.1.

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!
