For all three ASP OAI 2.0 Data Providers, the following major changes were made in this release:
1. Embedded the filename, version number, and check-in datetime as XML comments into the response.
2. Changed the OAI identifier format to oai:<namespace-identifier>:<local-identifier> as described in the specification.
3. Added the boot-time check procedure for the ASP application in order to check the availability of various objects used in the application and/or some miscellaneous items.
