As part of the migration into the SciToS project – which was mainly driven by the desire to provide a more stable/maintainable platform – HermeneutiX users were supposed to benefit as well. The main differences to v1.12 are:
Visible changes in version 1.12 are very few.
It is mainly a BugFix-Release considering the export of projects with empty/not-set translations.
Beside that it contains several code changes in the background that should not affect the frontend as it is. Those changes are just part of my effort to strengthen the separation of concerns (user interface and its logic). This should simplify the process of creating an alternate user interface such as a web frontend and thereby enabling smartphones and tablets to use HermeneutiX as well.
But this is still work in progress and I cannot promise anything at this point.
As promised, the last Release for 2013: version 1.1
In addition to some internal refactorings and small bug fixes are some new features:
The first official non-beta release contains only a few changes compared to the last beta version.
It does not really call for a major release besides the fact that we finally determined how to handle the matter of the help section. Admittedly we solved it rather evasive by just linking to external help sources such as the SourceForge project wiki. But in this way we manage to keep it up to date and might lure you to visit us here from time to time.
the only difference to 0.931 is the added "-Xmx1024m" VM option in the Unix, Mac and Windows launchers
improved SVG export:
fixed the right-to-left orientation (which is not supported by all browsers in the specified way)
more export settings (available under the 'print' option section) for highlighting parts in different colors
Finally: full SVG export functionality for syntactical as well as semantical analysis.
Next: additional export settings (a few are currently available under the 'print' option) for highlighting parts in different colors
Including the first export possibility: Generating a HTML representation of the semantical analysis. (In progress: export of the syntactical analysis)
To improve the teaching usability:
It is now possible to increase or decrease the font size of the text in the label, translation, syntactical function and commentary fields.
Finally with the help of "Launch4J". Now for every new version available: an .exe-Launcher (contained in the Runnable-JAR .zip).
A few reported Bugs are fixed.
We appreciate any feedback on occurring bugs or possible improvements on the usability and we got new help for the export function.
Thanks to Carsten Z. for that.
