The Entrada project team is pleased to announce the release of Entrada ME 1.6.1. This release is the first version to use the ME branding as part of our Entrada Platform. Entrada ME 1.6.1 focuses primarily on refinements and improvements, as well as updating core components, introducing all new Community templates, and an enhanced Curriculum Search engine.

It is also important to note that we now have two versions of Entrada ME: the Open Edition, and Consortium Edition. The majority of our development activity is now completed within our private consortium source code repository and only features intended for the public are brought into our Open Edition repository. For more information about the Consortium, please contact us.

You can download the Open Edition of Entrada ME 1.6.1 simply by clicking the Download link at the top of the page, or by visiting our GitHub source code repository.
