             Subject: Beta Release of the Versioning Machine

    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, 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
    and follow the link to "Download".

    Please send any comments and suggestions to ver-mach-users@dev.umd.edu
