 Title: Apache River News
 
+# Apache River 2.2.3 Released - February 21, 2016
+
+Apache River 2.2.3 is a maintenance release based on the Apache River 2.2. branch.  It removes
the Activation
+subsystem, which was largely unused, and support for JRMP under the Java Extensible Remote
Invocation subsystem.
+The Java Remote Method Protocol is obsolete in the context of JERI.  It was previously included
to allow compatibility
+with Jini 1.0 services and clients.  The transition to Jini 2.0 should be complete by now.
