Duluth, GA óJune 19, 2012. Evergreen version 2.2 has officially been released!

According to Lebbeous Fogle-Weekley, Equinox Software Developer and 2.2 release maintainer, " This latest release had lots of help from the usual suspects and from newer contributors across the Evergreen community. Not only is this the first official, stable release to include the new Template Toolkit OPAC, but there are lots of new features in Circulation, Cataloging, and elsewhere. Along with 2.2.0, there are also new releases for the 2.1 and 2.0 series, and all of these contain security fixes.
