I am singing for all of you at NCEAS and for us..."Congratulations, 
Congratulations...!"". Could not have a better timing because here at LUQ we 
needed the final version so we can meet our goals for May next year, just 
before our site review. Thanks again.

> The EML Project is happy to announce the release of Ecological Metadata 
> Language (EML) version 2.0.0.  EML is a structured, modular language for 
> documenting ecologically relevant data.  You can download EML at:
>    http://knb.ecoinformatics.org/software/eml/
> This release was made possible through the efforts of many contributors. 
>   In particular, individuals from the Knowledge Network for 
> Biocomplexity (KNB) project, the National Center for Ecological Analysis 
> and Synthesis (NCEAS), the Long-term Ecological Research network (LTER), 
> the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Ocenas (PISCO), 
> and the Joseph W. Jones Ecological Research Center made substantive 
> contributions to the work.
> At this point EML has been fully tested during the development of 9 beta 
> versions and 3 release candidates, so we expect it to be stable.  There 
> are no known bugs in this release, and we have no plans to change EML 
> beyond fixing serious bugs that may be reported.  Please report any bugs 
> and feature requests in the EML Bug database
