Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Apache CXF 2.5.0 released!

The Apache CXF team is proud to announce the availability of the 2.5.0 release.

Apache CXF is an open source services framework. CXF helps you build and develop services
using frontend programming APIs like JAX-WS and JAX-RS. These services can speak a variety
of protocols such as SOAP, XML/HTTP, RESTful HTTP, or  CORBA and work over a variety of transports
such as HTTP and JMS. 

CXF includes a broad feature set, but it is primarily focused on the following
* Web Services Standards Support: CXF supports a variety of web service standards including
SOAP, the WSI Basic Profile, WSDL, WS-Addressing, WS- Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Security,
WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-Trust, and WS-SecureConversation. 

* REST based service creation based on JAX-RS 1.1 standard API's.
* Frontends: CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming models. CXF provides a JAX-WS
2.2 Compliant frontend. It also includes a "simple frontend" 
which allows creation of clients and endpoints without annotations. CXF supports both contract
first development with WSDL and code first development starting from Java.
* Ease of use: CXF is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. There  are simple APIs to
quickly build code-first services, Maven plug-ins to make tooling integration easy, JAX-WS
API support, Spring  XML support to make configuration a snap, and much more.

What's new in CXF 2.5.0:
* New Security Token Service
* New WS-Notification service
* Initial OAuth support for JAX-RS services
* WS-MetadataExchange support
* Enhanced WS-RM interopability
* Enhanced OSGi and Karaf integration
* Much more.......
