+Vireo 1.2.1 - Release Notes - (February 27, 2012)
+========================================
+
+- Fix: Student UI - Birth Year Error (VIR-58)
+    When a student is entering his/her information in the birth date 
+    [mm/dd/yyyy] instead of birth year [yyyy] on the first page or first step 
+    of the submission process they receive a fatal error.  Amy Rushing, and
+    others at UT requested this fix to address the frequent questions and 
+    concern expressed by students about not being able to start a submission.
+
+- Enhancement: Student UI / Admin UI - Clear/Empty Birth Year
+    A student (via review), or admin can remove a birth year from a submission.
+    Laura Hammons at A&M requested this functionality to address some
+    student concerns of birth year showing by their name is several places.
+    Previously, the birth year field could not be changed from a valid year to
+    blank/empty (although since it is an optional field, it could be blank if it
+    was never entered).    
+    
+- Fix: Special characters are corrupted when and admin edits the abstract
+    A student uses special characters in the abstract (UTF-8).  If an admin 
+    edits the abstract on the Admin>View>Document Info tab, then in some cases,
+     the special characters change/become corrupted.
+    - Unicode characters should work in the following fields: 'First Name',
+      'Middle Initial', 'Last Name', 'Permanent Address', 'Current Address', 
+      'Title', 'Keywords', 'Abstract', and 'Committee Member' fields.  
+    - The '&', '%', and '+' symbols should now work in the following fields: 
+      Title, Keywords, and Abstract.  
+    - Fixed an issue with characters not showing correctly when opening the 
+      SUBMISSION_LOG.csv using Microsoft Excel (the log that appears after 
+      publishing)
+      
+- Enhancement: Version number in Student UI / Admin UI footer
