\[OW2 Newsletter - June 2008 - From the OW2 Management Office]\

Dear OW2 Members,

You want to follow what is going on at your favorite open source
middleware consortium but, of course, like everyone, you do not always
think of, nor feel like checking the OW2 home page ( This is
why we now offer instead to push news to you through this newsletter.
Another newsletter ?!? The truth is that it was not entirely our idea but
also a request from members themselves.
This is information, not communication. No noise, no spam. We only want
to keep you posted and keep it short. So without further ado, here they
are: Projects updates and Community events.
