> * The Opal Dashboard, which is a Web interface that is installed by
> default with Opal for accessing usage and server statistics
> * Dynamic Interface Generation, which uses a flexible XML schema for
> command-line argument specification and automatically generates Web
> interfaces from it
> * Improvement of back-end Opal services to support the dashboard and
> dynamic interface generation
> For this release, we would also like to announce our the new Opal
> website: http://nbcr.net/software/opal/, which uses software project
> management provided by SourceForge.net. All downloads are available
> from the above website.

> used in production on NBCR resources, and are hosted on ws.nbcr.net.
