    Are there any reviews yet about the quality and principles of the editing, scope of the apparatus, etc.?

      I haven’t seen any reviews yet, but the introduction is available on the website. Details are somewhat sparse, but the “Establishing the Text” and “Apparatus” sections do provide a bit of additional information along the lines of your question. At least at some point, though, it would be nice to see something along the lines of Metger’s Textual Commentary published for this edition also, at least where it differs from UBS4NA27.

        Well, I take that back. Here are some initial impressions from Stephen Carlson.
