After a couple of intermediate releases, EVT version 1.0 is finally available! There are many new features in this version:
- a full text search engine, with result highlighting in the text frame;
- support for named entities: name highlighting in the edition text, browsable full lists with links to single documents;
- support for <listPlace> and <listPerson> elements;
- support for diplomatic documents (regesto) and for general information about specific texts;
- support for bibliography, manuscript and project information;
- User Interface localization;
- lots of bugs fixed!
Go download it and check for yourself on the SourceForge site. For more information about how to use and/or customize EVT please refer to the EVT Manual included in the archive you downloaded, just look in the “doc” folder.
Please send all feedback to email@example.com, we would love to hear from you: bug reports, suggestions, even your general impressions about how EVT has worked for you are more than welcome. If you want to check an actual edition made with EVT, possibly showing all the latest features, the excellent Codice Pelavicino Digitale  is just what you want to browse.

 You can also drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. If for any particular reason you would prefer to send feedback anonymously, you can do it using this form; note, however, that it may take a little longer before one member of the development team checks it.
 The default EVT example in the 1.0 archive is in fact a single document from the Codice Pelavicino manuscript.
