It is now five years since the completion of the NewsML [1] standard and the International Press Telecommunications Council [3] is hard at work on NewsML 2.  In November 2004 we published the Requirements for NewsML 2 [2] and are now glad to announce the publication of the first public Working Drafts of:

–  the NewsML 2 Architecture Model [2]

–  the NewsML 2 Architecture Technical Specification [2]

We welcome comments on these documents and will study them carefully though we do not have the resources to provide feedback on each comment received.
