Opencast 11.3

Hi everyone,

It is my pleasure to announce that Opencast 11.3 has been released:

https://github.com/opencast/opencast/releases

This release fixes several bugs and security issues related to logging, which were fixed in 10.9 and forward merged to this release.

A notable new feature is the speechtotext workflow operation handler (WoH). Introducing support for the STT Engine Vosk. Additionally, the design of the embed code selection within the Admin UI was updated. Also, there are enhancements to the execute-one and execute-many WoH.
