Sam’s Greenstone Blog 26/9/2011

sjm84. Monday, September 26th, 2011.

Hello again, sorry about the big delay between posts, things have been pretty busy here recently and remembering to write this often slips my mind.

We’ve released our first release candidate for 2.85 so please try it out and let us know if there are any issues. You can find it at http://www.greenstone.org/snapshots.

The front-end for the Document Basket (formerly the Document Maker) is looking really good now, sections can be added, moved around, duplicated and removed. The text of each section can also be easily edited thanks to Brook Novak’s Seaweed (Seamless Web Editing) technology which was developed here at the University of Waikato. For those of you who haven’t seen this yet, it basically allows you to click text on a web page and start editing it right there without the need for any complicated text boxes/buttons etc. Very cool.

We have yet to connect the front-end Document Basket interface to the back-end yet and we are still working on features such as undo, so that is what I will be working on this for this week.
