emc2_2.3.0 Released

I'm pleased to announce the first stable release of the 2.3 series, emc
2.3.0. This version has many new features compared to emc 2.2.8.

Read the changelog attached to the 2.3.0 filerelease for a list of new features/fixes.

The new packages are now available for Ubuntu 6.06 "Dapper Drake" and 8.04 "Hardy Heron" in the package repositories. Because this version is incompatible with emc 2.2.8 in several minor ways, it will not automatically be installed as an upgrade. For more information and installation/upgrade instructions, please see http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?UpdatingTo2.3

CVS users can get this release by checking out the RELEASE_2_3_0 tag (or
follow bugfixes on v2_3_branch).

Many thanks to all the contributors who have been working over the course
of many months to deliver the many improvements in this release.
