Ten months after the last stable release, a major milestone release is finally here: MARY 3.1.0.
mary-install-3.1.0.jar (web-based installer)
Thanks to those who have helped test the beta versions! All the problems that we have become aware of should be fixed in this release. For a reasonably complete list of issues addressed in this release, see http://mary.opendfki.de/milestone/3.1.0

The unit selection code released here has performed better-than-average in this year’s Blizzard Challenge (http://www.festvox.org/blizzard/), showing that the system can be considered state-of-the-art. For details, see: http://www.dfki.de/~schroed/publications.html#schroeder_hunecke2007a
