      • need dictionary + phonetic rules to investigate
    • 465 (hyphenation does not work) - resolved by last drop


  • CS2 vs CS3: still one more to check, and get confirmation from the board
  • new mklex compiles just fine, and the ń tokenisation bug seems to be fixed
  • it looks like we don't need the mklex for Linux tool, but would still like to evaluate it more this week
  • hyphenation works again, using the latest drop from Polderland
  • many linguistic changes - right now we have a major set-back with our linguistic description, we are working on it
  • penalty specifications received, not yet tested


  • full stop at end of word - command line speller
    • will check this and get back wrt tokenization diffs with Word
      • needs some more investigation

Next meeting

Next week (10.7.) at the usual time.

Holiday Peter: 24-07 - 14-08


  • check inconsistent speller behaviour depending on the existence of userdict or not PLD
    • Peter has started to look at this
  • 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 + Adobe confirms it no longer sold
    • check with Sámi publishing houses whether support for CS2 is still needed ( Divvun)
  • speller in InDesign/InCopy option (PLD)
  • see buglist in the Divvun Bugzilla partially ; (PLD) see above
