Subject: Tellme Studio program change

VoiceXML Developer,

Tellme has made many investments in VoiceXML over the past four years.

One of these investments was in the Extensions program, with the goal

of making VoiceXML a more utilized public standard. Now with VoiceXML

well on its way to standardization in the W3C and with hundreds of

thousands of VoiceXML applications in production,  it is clear that

investment has paid off. It is time for us to retire the Extensions

program and invest in other areas. As of Wednesday, April 9th we will

no longer host Extensions on 1-800-555-TELL or

http://studio.tellme.com. Developers can continue to build VoiceXML

applications on Tellme Studio.

Thank you for your individual contribution in making VoiceXML the most

widely-used and successful voice standard in the world.

The Tellme Development Team

Damn, that sucks.
