A list of the main features of ekdosis follows:—

Multilingual critical editions
ekdosis can be used to typeset any number of texts in any direction accepted by LuaTEX. Running paragraphs of text can be arranged in any number of columns, either on single or facing pages, which in turn can be synchronized or not. ekdosis is also suitable for complex layouts as in the case of Arabic poetry or images where three-way alignment is required, or diagrams, &c.
Apparatus criticus
Edited texts can receive multiple layers of apparatus, e.g. apparatus criticus (to record variant readings), apparatus fontium (to collect references to texts quoted or cited in the edited text), apparatus testium (to collect testimonia or parallel passages), or any kind of short notes to be printed on the same page as the edited text, &c.
PDF and TEI xml output
ekdosis can be instructed to output both PDF and TEI xml files at the same time.
Database-driven
Encoding under LATEX of texts entered segment by segment allows for alignment of parallel texts from multilingual corpora.
