Hi all,

Thanks to the efforts of many developers, testers, and users, we are
pleased to announce the latest ACE+TAO+CIAO x.6.1 release, which is a
"bug fix only" (BFO) release that corrects defects found with the x.6
release but adds no new functionality, thereby ensuring stability.  The
x.6.1 release is available from the same download location as per the
previous x.6 release at


under the heading "Latest BFO Beta".

The doxygen documentation for the release is also available.  The
prebuild cidlc binaries will be available tomorrow.  In addition to the
packages combined of sources and generate makefiles, this release also
provides source-only packages for the group of users who use MPC to
generate their own makefiles.

applications, and let us know if you encounter any problems. Please use
