Since last time


  • currently looking into bug with test system with/without user dictionary
    • not completed yet
  • Adobe: developing for CS3 - work continues. Windows version compiles, work on Mac version started. Preparing for testing with InDesign.
  • testing Divvun installer for Mac. Some problems: old OS (10.2.8) complains about "no system files that can be activated" (error 95). Currently looking into what causes this. I know you said it works from 10.3 onwards. - It *should* work, but it isn't yet tested by Divvun. PLD: We have no active 10.3 at this moment, so I thought I'd check 10.2.8 first

Test string is: nuvviD, even nuvviDpeople


  • building speller lexicon is working well again, we have produced several updates during the last week.
  • almost ready to release the public beta - code freeze this afternoon, then testing. Release is planned for Tuesday May 29. We will send out a press release as part of the event.
  • made Mac install package available for download

Issue with ń

ŋ vs ñ and ń in smj. Example: maŋŋel (correct) vs the common misspellings maññel / mańńel.

  • maññel - ok, the whole word is underlined, and corrected to maŋŋel
  • mańńel - ń is not recognised as part of the word, only el is underlined - ń is Hex 0144, dec. 324.

Next meeting

Next week (29.5) at the usual time.


  • check inconsistent speller behaviour depending on the existence of userdict or not PLD
  • PLD continue to create hyphenator for Adobe InDesign CS3
  • PLD try to find proper compiler version for Adobe Indesign CS2. Looks bad.
    • old version does not work, user group confirms it no longer sold
    • check with Sámi publishing houses whether support for CS2 is still needed ( Divvun)
  • PLD send quotation for linux version mklex / PSC speller / test program (+ sources) / interface description
  • send updated Win and Mac installers for testing (Divvun)
  • include ń as character in words (PLD), send updated binaries
