P5 version 1.0 release notes

Dear TEI users,
After more than 6 years of, at times quite intensive, development, it is with great pleasure that I announce the release of version 1.0 of P5, the latest and greatest version of the Guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative, which officially happened Nov. 2 2007 at the TEI Members Meeting in Maryland. You will find the new version online at http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/index.html; a PDF and even printed books are expected to appear in due time.

The main development work has been carried out by the TEI Technical Council and the Editors Lou Burnard and Syd Bauman. I would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank all previous members of the Council but also especially the current members, who shared quite a bit of the work, which magically increased as the release date was approaching:

David Birnbaum, Tone Merete Bruvik, Arianna Ciula, James Cummings, Matthew Driscoll, Daniel O'Donnel, Dot Porter, Sebastian Rahtz Laurent Romary, Conal Tuohy, John Walsh.
