Hi All,

Today I realized, and went back and looked at the release announcement  
for Avahi 0.1 ("Guten Tag") which was posted on the 22nd of August,  
2005.  That makes Avahi 3 years old!

Here is my initial announcement e-mail which reached far and wide:

Just wanted to extend my thanks to everyone involved in the project...  
most especially to Lennart who spear-headed and has driven the project  
as a whole, but we have also received contributions from a great many  
people - too many to list here.  To everyone (and you know who you  
are!) - your contributions are valued - and Thanks! This includes not  
just people that contributed patches, but also worked with us on bug  
reports, etc.

In that time Avahi has become fairly standard across all/most linux  
distributions - although I feel it's features are still not really  
exploited anywhere near its capability within desktop applications  
which is a bit of a shame.  Hopefully in the next while that can be  
remedied.  It certainly helps that Avahi support is now prominent in a  
fair percentage of the active install base.
