Subject: CAIRNS - Initial Open Source Release

Dear colleagues,

CAIRNS (Cooperative Alert Information and Resource Notification System), one of the outcomes of work done within the SAFE project [1] at NICTA, has been released today as Open Source under the BSD licence.

CAIRNS is a demonstrator of technologies that can be used to construct an interoperable CIMS (Crisis Information Management System) architecture. Specifically, CAIRNS implements the following XML-based emergency messaging standards
 - EDXL - Distribution Element
 - EDXL - Resource Messaging
 - Common Alert Protocol (CAP)

CAIRNS documentation [2] and source [3] are available now.
