Release of 2.0.1 of TEI P5 Published

The 2.0.1 release of TEI P5 is a minor release fixing a number of bugs pointed out with the 2.0.0 release. The 2.0.0 release of TEI P5 was a major new release of the TEI P5 Guidelines, which introduces some significant new material as well as implementing an unusually large set of other changes and error corrections. Since the last release in March 2011, members of the TEI community have proposed over 60 feature requests and reported about the same number of errors; dealing with these has kept the TEI Council busy, and most of these tickets have now been closed. See further the release notes http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/readme-2.0.1.html.

Call for TEI Project Info

All,

The TEI Projects page at http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/index.xml has
been gathering entries for quite a few years, and not surprisingly some of the
information in the entries is obsolete or out of date. TEI Council has discussed
migrating the information here to a more user-friendly database-like interface,
but that may not happen for a while.

In the meantime, I have just gone through the existing entries and fixed broken
links. I am sure that other information (contact email, etc.) needs updating as
well. If you are responsible for a project listed on that page and want to make
any changes, could you please email the details to me?

Also, you can submit new projects here: http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/newform.html

Four projects on the list seem to be entirely missing from the Web. If anyone
can provide me with working links to them, I will update; otherwise I will
remove them from this list in a week or so:

The Anglo-Saxon Poetry Project
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/an01.xml

The Cursus Project
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/cu01.xml

Project Lorelei
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/lo01.xml

The Sternberg Project
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/st01.xml

Thanks for assistance,
