Dear Modeling TC enthusiasts,

Just a quick update on the status of UML 2.0.

Currently, UML 2.0 is up for an OMG-adoption vote on 28 March 2003.  Of
course, I expect that there will be a ³yes² vote.  The only inhibitor might
be that there have several small last-minute changes to the spec.  Most of
the submitters maintain that these changes were mostly super-minor ³bug
fixes² in nature.  However, there could be a debate that a few of them are
slightly more than that.  If this occurs, there is a procedural technicality
that requires that the vote is delay until 3 June.  In short, the spec
content is not the problem, it is the approval date.  Will keep you updated
after the 28 March meeting.

In the meantime the UML 2.0 specs -- with errata -- can be downloaded from:

Thank you for your interest.
