C++ EPP RTK Available

Hi everyone,

Today marks the first release of the C++ RTK from Global Name Registry, the operators for the .name domain registry. They have also developed a utility package called Domtools which is a wrapper to Xerces for parsing XML. If you run into any problems using these packages, please send a note to the devel mailing list.

With this release, we've changed the packaging slightly. Previously, a single package was released with all languages to be included. We discovered that this was impractical. So the packages will be "epp-rtk-java-" and "epp-rtk-cpp-", etc...... read more

New features added to the EPP RTK Project

Hi everyone,

This past week we've created two mailing lists for discussions regarding the EPP RTK. The general mailing list is just for that: general discussion of the RTK. The devel list is mostly for developers who are either using the RTK in their registrar code or who are developing ports or add-ons to the RTK.

We've also created a survey for the RTK. Its results will give us a better understanding of the user base of the RTK. If you could take a few moments to fill it in, that would be greatly appreciated.... read more
