Since last time


  • currently looking into bug with test system with/without user dictionary
    • still not completed yet
  • Adobe: developing for CS3 - work continues. Both Windows and Mac version compile InDesign CS3 debug now available
  • testing Divvun installer for Mac: failed on 10.4 due to empty rsc fork new text version available but not tested yet
    • OS versions to be used for testing: 10.3 (on G4) -- we actually have one.
  • ŋ vs ñ and ń: no problem, change 1 entry in a table.
    • (not in Beta, though)

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.
    • almost ready - the press release will be released in the evening
  • made Mac install package available for download
    • done

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 (5.6) 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)
