And now some ADL 2.0-related news: as of yesterday you can explore the ADL
2.0 capable developer-pre-release of the openEHR web based archetype- and
template-editors (templates can also be exported to OPT 1.4)

Have a look at the presentation from Medinfo yesterday:

When the web-client source code has been moved to the right place, we'll
post info to the lists.
