Dear TEI Community,

TEI P5 version 2.3.0 (Codename: Betty White) is now available 
from all the usual sources, such as the TEI-C website and 
SourceForge. The debian packages, TEI-C XSL, and oxygen-tei 
framework will be updated fairly soon. This release introduces 
both textual and schema-related changes, new features and a 
significant number of bug fixes.  Mostly these are based on bug 
and feature request tickets submitted to SourceForge by the TEI 
community. If you notice anything that has changed in error, or 
want to submit additional changes, please do so on the website.

We have continued in our aim of opening up the release process to 
as many different people on Council and in this case the newly 
elected Hugh Cayless (NYU Digital Library Technology Services) 
was the release technician. Able assistance was also given by 
several other council members on the TEI IRC channel (see for more information). As 
always this has produced a set of notes for how to improve the 
release process that will be fed back into for 
future releases. The greatest thanks are due not only to the TEI 
Technical Council for undertaking the work, but the TEI community 
for submitting tickets!

A text version of the release notes is below, but a version (with 
links) is available at:

Many thanks to all,

James Cummings
(TEI Technical Council Chair)
