Greetings SignWriting List,

We are finalizing the testing of SignPuddle 2.0. We plan to go live
with the update tomorrow. The conversion process will take around 2
hours during which time SignPuddle online may not be available.

The major update involves searching. The new searching does not use an
archived index, but performs a live search on the data. This searching
is partially available now, but has been properly integrated in the
SignPuddle 2.0 update.

The Symbol Frequency has been revamped to provide an accurate report
that now includes sign text documents as well.

A new Search by Group page is available that provides searching in
multiple steps. It allows for searching within search results.

Searching spoken language has improved. You can now search separately
on Terms and Titles, Text, Source and Puddle Page.

Horizontal writing has returned for SignMail and ColumnMaker. Once
again, SignPuddle can create horizontal writing. It uses the 2 lane
design of the upper head lane and the general middle lane.

The other major changes are invisible to the general user as they
concern the data rather than the user interface.

SignPuddle 2.0 is a faithful implementation of the Modern SignWriting
specification. It utilizes the latest SignWriting Image Server code. It
is an important step forward in power, flexibility, and stability.

The Modern SignWriting specification is available on GitHub.

PDF Link: https://github.com/Slevinski/msw/raw/master/MSW.pdf

The SignWriting Image Server software is also available on GitHub.

I have not completed the move of the ISWA 2010 font software to GitHub
yet. It is available online: http://www.signpuddle.net/iswa/

Previously, SignPuddle 1.6 implemented our preliminary Unicode design.
Since then, the initial design and proposal is being re-worked, for a
possible new submission later this year. Although work continues on the
Unicode design, there is no completed proposal at this time that can be
implemented in software. Therefore, it was necessary that SignPuddle
2.0 remove Unicode from the SignWriting data.

SignPuddle 2.0 adds a new data format option for SignWriting that uses
Unicode characters on plane 15 from the Private Use Area. This format
is intended for testing purposes only. It is a stable pure character
model, but not currently involved in the Unicode design process.

Regards,
-Steve
