Subject: [DRAFT][ANNOUNCE] Apache Daffodil (incubating) 2.1.0 released
All steps have been taken to release 2.1.0. We now just need to wait for
about a day for files to sync to mirrors and repositories. While we
wait, here's is a draft of the email to officially announce this
release. Feedback is welcome.
The Apache Daffodil (incubating) community is pleased to announce the
release of version 2.1.0.
Release notes and downloads are available at:
Daffodil is an open source implementation of the
DFDL (Data Format Description Language) specification that
uses DFDL schemas to parse fixed format data into an infoset, which is
most commonly represented as either XML or JSON. This allows the use of
well-established XML or JSON technologies and libraries to consume,
inspect, and manipulate fixed format data in existing solutions.
Daffodil is also capable of the reverse by serializing or "unparsing" an
XML or JSON infoset back to the original data format.

Apache Daffodil is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache
Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC.
Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further
review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision
making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other
successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a
reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does
indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
