Subject: Announcing the Beta Release of the Versioning Machine 1.0

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 not
only to provide for features traditionally found in codex-based
critical editions (such as annotation and introductory material), but
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
encoding.

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.

To register and download the beta version please go to
http://www.mith2.umd.edu/products/ver-mach/
and follow the link to "Download".

Please send your comments to ver-mach-usersdev.umd.edu
