ECF 2.0.0 New Features video

It can't match Ed's pictures, but below is a pleasant scene, where most of the beauty is hidden beneath what is visible

But to the point: ECF has a new video showing some of the new things in ECF 2.0:
  • Screen shot sharing
  • URL sharing
  • Real-Time shared editing
  • Discovery API, Service Discovery, Remote OSGI Services
  • Async File Download
