Resources to understand more about UMA are available and growing. For example, especially if you're familiar with UMA V1, check out this detailed swimlane to get the broad strokes of what has changed. We're fleshing out the Release Notes, updating the UMA Implementer's Guide, and attending to similar tasks around the site. If you're interested to help, we invite you to join the group!
