EVT 2 beta 1, aka "The Halloween release", is available for download
with many new features: improved support for critical editions (critical
apparatus also available in a dedicated text frame, apparatus fontium,
support for multiple recensions), initial support for named entities,
initial support for a working area, and more. As for previous versions
the starting point is a TEI P5 document holding your critical or
diplomatic edition, support for the latter is still incomplete since the
EVT 1 features porting is currently under way.
