EADitor is a free, open-source cross-platform XForms framework for creating, editing, and publishing Encoded Archival Description (EAD) finding aids using Orbeon, an enterprise-level XForms Java application, which runs in Apache Tomcat.  I have released the latest stable code in downloadable packages on our Google Code site (http://code.google.com/p/eaditor/downloads/list).  This release is a major advancement over the June 2011 release, especially in terms of performance and stability.  I call EADitor a beta because there is much I have left to improve, but this is the first production-ready release, an example of which is the American Numismatic Society Archives site, Archer.

Features in a nutshell:

One of the most important recent advancements in the project is the introduction of our documentation wiki (http://wiki.numismatics.org/eaditor:eaditor).  Documentation is an ongoing process, but the wiki contains enough information to get you started with installation and use.
