Last week, the UShareSoft team attended the Parisian leg of Fujitsu's World Tour, a great event around the theme of "Human Centric Innovation in Action".
We're wrapping up a great week here at UShareSoft. On Tuesday we announced that the company has been acquired by the Fujitsu Group, who will be integrating our UForge platform into their Cloud Service K5, part of the Digital Business MetaArc platform. Additionally, UShareSoft will be leading Fujitsu's new European cloud services R&D center to help drive the company's global cloud business.

On the same day, UShareSoft's hammr project, also won the 2015 OW2 Innovation Award at this years Annual Conference. hammr is an open source command line tool, based on Python, for creating repeatable machine images for hybrid cloud from a single configuration file.
We're very proud of the team that develop hammr, which has already been integrated into AppHub, the European open source marketplace, and will enable OW2 projects to easily include their software in the OW2 Market Place, by providing ready-to-use templates that include operating system packages, configuration logic, other required software and of course, the OW2 project itself.
You can find out more about hammr and the team, and download it from www.hammr.io. Use it, contribute and let us know what you think.
Christmas comes early this year with the arrival of the latest version of UForge AppCenter, bringing you a bumper pack of new features and functionality. We've put a stake in the ground for supporting Docker, as you'll have seen from our previous blog posts. This release also includes a brand new plugin service for our enterprise partners that fundamentally changes how UForge AppCenter can be integrated with 3rd party services; and we've given our user interface a facelift.
Today, we're announcing new releases of our cloud application delivery products, UForge AppCenter 3.6 and UForge Marketplace 3.1. Letting you easily build, migrate, ship and govern applications for containers and cloud, UForge remains the best enterprise platform for automating end-to-end application governance and delivery for hybrid IT environments. We also have new initiatives in place including the AppHub European open source marketplace, new global distribution partners such as Crayon, and new customers including the Talend Exchange Marketplace.
Here at UShareSoft, we're always growing the number of partners we're working with. We recently announced a new partnership with Crayon, which is designed to help service providers rapidly ramp their cloud business with new software-related services.
