Release notes for JSesh

Release notes for JSesh

*2.4.16

this release mainly adds new signs to JSesh

  • complete "C", "G", and "H" families: all the gods and birds you wanted, and more.
  • a few signs have been fixed when they contained errors.
  • the data on the "C" family has been completely typed, so that you can see what the palette can do. Find a god sign using one of his attributes !
  • An experimental window executable installer is provided, for people with windows Vista (it also works on XP)
  • A bug fix with Mac OS X Leopard, which made JSesh very slow on this system, has been made. Please tell me if it works, as I cautiously keep my Tiger.

*2.4.15

The most notable improvement of 2.4.15 is the addition of a new software: the sign info editor. It allows one to add information on signs, for instance transliteration and sign description. I hope that some JSesh user with enough expertise in Egyptology will take advantage of this to improve the existing data.

Meanwhile, this also means that the JSesh palette has been improved.

Other changes:

* Now, '-' can be used while typing signs transliterations for entering signs. For instance, you can type "Hwt-Hr".

* Corrected interpretation of \r and \t when importing winglyph text.

* Corrected some bugs in TTF fonts import (well, some of those bugs are due
to the various versions of Java.

* We now include the MDC source file in the PDF output of JSesh as a comment
(in the Subject field). This is a trick, but it will allows us, for instance, to
save and reload PDF files created by JSesh, which is a requirement of the IFAO.

There seems to be a problem when installing 2.4.15 with windows vista. I'm working on it.
