Dear all,

Today we have released ELAN version 3.3.0.

This release fixes a few bugs in the structured search in multiple 
files and adds a number of new features, mainly in the import and 
export of data.
It is now possible to export multiple .eaf files to 1 output file, as 
tab-delimited text, a word list or as a list of annotations. Also a 
new variant of export to Toolbox has been added. It is Unicode-only 
and offers a number of new customization options: line wrapping, 
insertion of blank lines, in/exclusion of empty markers etc. The 
result is meant to resemble the common Toolbox structure as much as 
Another new export option is export to Subtitle text in SubRip .srt format.
On the import side a feature has been added to flexibly import 
annotations from a Comma Separated Values or tab-delimited text file. 
The user should indicate at least one column to be holding 
annotations, begin- and end times are optional. (This feature has not 
yet been described in the updated manual.)
This version of ELAN supports relative paths for media files.

For a detailed list of the changes please read the release notes at
