|Title:||Announcing the Beta Release of the Versioning Machine 1.0|
|Description:||Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) is pleased to announce the beta release of The Versioning Machine (VM) 1.0.
The Versioning Machine is a software tool designed to display and compare multiple versions of texts. The display environment seeks no only to provide for features traditionally found in codex-based critical editions (such as annotation and introductory material), bu to take advantage of opportunities of electronic publishing by providing a frame to compare diplomatic versions of witnesses side by side, allowing for images of the witness to be viewed alongside the diplomatic edition, and providing users with an enhanced typology of notes. The VM is TEI conformant and utilizes parallel segmentation
The Versioning Machine is now ready for testing, and we welcome beta testers. To aid with the encoding process, we provide several sample encoded texts as well as documentation in the Download Zip.
