AT&T Laboratories Cambridge is pleased to announce that the second
pre-release of omniORBpy is now available for download. omniORBpy is a
robust and efficient implementation of the CORBA Python mapping.

The most significant update from pre-release 1 is that omniORBpy now
has full POA support, when used in conjunction with omniORB 3 (which
is also in pre-release). omniORBpy can also be used with omniORB 2.8,
in which case most POA functions are disabled.

We run omniORBpy on Linux, Solaris and Windows NT, and it has already
been ported to a number of other platforms. It should be easy to port
to any other platform for which omniORB and Python are available.
Although this is a pre-release, the ORB has no known bugs, and is in
daily use in our lab.

omniORBpy is only available in source form at the moment. Binaries
will follow in the near future. For further details, and download
instructions, visit
