 We are pleased to announce the fourteenth release (code name "Gaposchkin") of the
 Einstein Toolkit, an open, community developed software infrastructure for
-relativistic astrophysics. This release includes, among other things,
-more examples in the Einstein Toolkit Gallery.
+relativistic astrophysics. The highlights of this release are:
+* The Llama multi-patch infrastructure, which has been publicly
+  available for some time already, is now part of the Einstein
+  Toolkit.  An example in the Einstein Toolkit Gallery shows how to
+  run Llama with a simple wave equation.
+* There is a new example in the Einstein Toolkit Gallery demonstrating
+  how to evolve a binary black hole system and reproduce a waveform
+  consistent with GW150914, the first gravitational wave event
+  detected by LIGO.
 In addition, bug fixes accumulated since the previous release in May 2016
 have been included.
