SignWriting List
February 22, 2012

Hello Steve!
This is the ultimate birthday gift - a new foundation for future software for SignWriting - Thank you for your new "Modern SignWriting" specifications for software development, and thank you for the new SignWriting Image Server v3 (SWISv3).

I know these accomplishments lay the groundwork for the future SignPuddle 2 I look forward to testing SignPuddle 2 when the time is right...

Have a splendid day!

Val ;-)

It has been updated to be consistent with the MSW document and it covers all of the various sections of MSW with working and tested functions.  I have a bit more work before it is production ready, but I'm very pleased with what I have so far.
