I will be away for a month

I will be away from my home PC (where I do all Filler stuff) from Jan 29 till Feb 25. We are just completing a new version of our product which features huge architectural changes to the distributed object system, implemented by me, so I get to go to Wyoming and Arizona to help make it work and keep the customers happy. I hope to still log into sourceforge occasionally, but on site the standard is a 14 hour work day.

development release 1.02

I have uploaded release 1.02 which is a development release only. This release should not be internationalised yet, only 1.01 should be internationalised. The 1.01 code base will eventually become release 1.1, and the development stream will become 2.0.

release 1.01

I have finally uploaded the files for release 1.01 of Filler in Java. This release includes a couple of bug fixes affecting internationalisation, and includes Finnish and Russian translations.

There is an internationalisation forum for this project now. I will start sending info to that (when I know any).

In the file, there is a line that looks like this:


It's useless, and a mistake, so please delete it
when you translate.
