Subject [greenstone-devel] Greenstone v2.70w released!
Hi everyone,

We are pleased to announce that Windows, GNU/Linux, Mac OS/X and
Source distributions of Greenstone v2.70w
are now available for download from our sourceforge page:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/greenstone.

This is a bug fix release, and release notes are copied below.

This release includes the Export to CDROM functionality, so the Export
to CDROM auxiliary package is no longer needed.

Also available is an updated version of the documented example
collections package.

As always, please report any problems or bugs to the mailing list.

Regards,
Katherine
On behalf of the Greenstone team.

can be
exploded
