....and the Center for Environmental Studies, Arizona State University.
While we are also part of the LTER network, not all of the staff that work
in informatics are in LTER.

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: 


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 
( http://bugzilla.ecoinformatics.org <http://bugzilla.ecoinformatics.org> ),
or by sending email to 
eml-dev at ecoinformatics.org. 

The release notes are attached.
