DSC Version 2.0.0 Release Candidate 1

DNS-OARC is proud to announce the release of DSC v2.0.0-rc.1 today.

This is a major update since the last version released over a year ago. Being the first release candidate for v 2.0.0, we are making this available to the community for testing purposes prior to the final release on 31 May 2016.

This release brings a major update to the DSC software with the separation of the Collector and the Presenter. The code being released today is only the Collector.
