Hi everyone,

EPUBCheck v4.2.0-beta, a new preview release of the forthcoming v4.2.0 version, is now available at the following page:

 https://github.com/w3c/epubcheck/releases/tag/v4.2.0-beta

With this new beta, EPUBCheck is getting closer to fully supporting EPUB 3.2.
Version 4.2.0-beta includes updates to the various EPUB vocabularies (for `epub:type` and Package Document properties), support for new Core Media Types, as well as various other bug fixes and small improvements (see details on the release page linked above).

This release is the last step before the "Release Candidate" milestone, which will be (tentatively) published around mid-March, and will be 100% feature complete. The remaining issues can be tracked at the following page:
  https://github.com/w3c/epubcheck/milestone/9

Please keep in mind that although this beta version is not intended for production, broad testing of EPUBCheck preview releases is very important to ensure a solid final v4.2.0 release, and make the transition to EPUB 3.2 as smooth as possible!

Feedback is warmly welcome, via replies to this email or directly to our issue tracker on GitHub:
 https://github.com/w3c/epubcheck/issues

Many thanks to everyone who contributed!

Best,
Romain.
