Here's what I have so far. Please help me improve this. I plan to 
announce the release on Monday June 25.



The Apache Derby project is pleased to announce feature release

Apache Derby is a subproject of the Apache DB project. Derby is a pure 
Java relational database engine which conforms to the ISO/ANSI SQL and 
JDBC standards. Derby aims to be easy for developers and end-users to 
work with.

Derby can be obtained from the Derby download site:


Derby contains the following new features:

     * NATIVE authentication - Derby now provides better credentials 
management to replace BUILTIN authentication.
     * JDBC 4.1 escape syntax - Most of Derby's JDBC 4.1 support was 
provided in release This release supplies the remaining bits: 
object mapping and new escape syntax.
     * Multi-column EXISTS subqueries - Multi-column SELECT lists are 
now allowed in EXISTS subqueries.

In addition, Derby contains many bug, security, and 
documentation fixes.

Please try out this new release.
