 2) Today, we're announcing a new Open Source project -- Whack (yeah, we
have a lot of naming creativity). Whack is a Java library for creating
XMPP components (JEP-0114). It has several goals:

 * Act as an API for internal *or* external components transparently.
 * Automatic configurability of components using ad-hoc commands mapped
to Javabeans.
 * A simple API targeted specifically at components instead of an XMPP
client API that can also work for components.

Initial source code is available via CVS
(http://www.jivesoftware.org/source.jsp). The first official release
will be in 1-2 months. More details about Whack at:
