I've decided to pretend that the relative lack of posts here lately is a sign that Weasel 1.61 is mostly bug free and not, instead, a sign of a waning user-base or the imminent death of the Palm platform. Therefore, I have gone ahead with the 1.61 release.
An actual release pretty much guarantees a lot more people using it, so if there are any show stopper bugs, hopefully they'll surface quickly.
Right now only the English version is available, but I will make the other languages available as soon as the translations are updated. The existing 1.59.3 hyphenation databases are still compatible with Weasel 1.61 (at least, I know the English one is).
Thanks for the new release. But, frankly, I am now looking forward to an Android device. I still have a Palm, but I am pretty sure that my next device will be an Android device. Probably not TMobile's, but we'll see. So, the question is, are you interested in some Java coding? I know of a little program that would be a great project to port over. ;)
Personally, I'm not a fan of cell phones. Can't stand them, really. I even wrote a column for the newspaper about two years back on the subject.
But, it's not like my token effort at being a quasi-Luddite is going to do much of anything. And if I'm going to have a cell phone, it might as well do something useful, right? Whenever I get around to buying a decent phone, it will probably be something with Android as I don't have any intentions of getting an iPhone or something running Win Mobile.
As I've written to others in email, a port of Weasel really isn't possible since it's too integrated with the Palm OS API. Any other version would necessarily be a rewrite. But, I've looked at the Android API and writing something like Weasel with that API and in Java would almost certainly be an easier task.
So, I guess the short answer is... if I ever get an Android phone, I'll probably put Weasel on it one way or another.
