 ** Noteworthy JSRs **
-------------------------
This section of the News Bulletin calls out JSRs that have news to share
with the Java Community. If your JSR has something newsworthy to report
then send an alert ("Hey PMO!") to pmo@jcp.org.

- The JSR ballot of a successor JSR for the Information Module Profile
(JSR 195) has been started.  The intention of this "Information Module
Profile - Next Generation (IMP-NG)" is to enable information modules
(displayless mobile devices for non-human use in modems,
selling machines etc.) to use (non-graphical) features of MIDP 2.0, as
IMP did for MIDP 1.0 features.
 
- JSR 32, JAIN SIP v1.1, has completed its maintenance release. The
specification is available here: http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=32. 
JAIN SIP supports the following RFC's 3261, 2976, 3262, 3265, 3311,
3326, 3428 and 3515. The RI and TCK can be downloaded at:
http://jain-sip.dev.java.net/. 

- The JSR 226 Expert Group has been formed, and the EG will hold
its kickoff meeting on September 16-17. For more information, please
contact the JSR-226 spec. leads.

Remember, all JSRs operating under JCP 2.5 (the current version of the
JCP) require that all expert group member entities have signed the JSPA2
located here: http://jcp.org/en/participation/membership.
