  • working on improving both our spellers, as well as our hyphenation
    • many linguistic bugs fixed, still some to go
  • M+S letter: sent reply, suggested a different percentage
  • still no progress on South Sámi - too much other work
  • did not yet test 645

Bug status


No new items.

To be solved/investigated by Divvun

Div Pld Description
621 xxx other hyphenator bugs. PB: not as much incorrect as well as weird-looking.
630 xxx Word (prefix) with hyphen is rejected - and suggested
652 xxx UPPERCASE-typos only get acronym-suggestions: VARI -> no sugg, vARI -> VÁRI as sugg; consequence of the sugg. mechanism, unresolvable
581 xxx consonant doubling => actual problem is suggestions with hyphens (split compound type); these can be blocked as suggestions, and thus be removed (they would still be recognised, though)

Under investigation by Polderland

Div Pld Description
645 xxx borgguhan-gihppagis gets the hyphen on the next line - probably fixed in previous version. Please confirm our repro test results.
679 xxx Discretionary/soft hyphen not respected - repaired, repaired code to be dropped

Priority list

  1. Installer for Microsoft Office 2008 / Mac
  2. M+S request letter from the Divvun project
  3. InDesign proofing tools for Windows - almost completed

Next meeting

Next meeting (11.11.) at 10.00 Dutch/Norwegian time.
