Dear colleagues,

the TIGER project is pleased to announce TIGERSearch 2.0, the new
version of the treebank search tool. TIGERSearch supports a wide
variety of treebank formats.

For details about TIGERSearch 2.0, see:

Major improvements to TIGERSearch 2.0:

- Graphical input of corpus queries
 Queries can be ''drawn'' in an intuitive manner.

- Bookmarks
 Frequently used queries can be saved as ''bookmarks''.

- Templates
 Complex queries can be modularized by breaking them down into
parametrizable named query templates.

- Corpus statistics
 A tool for compiling co-occurrence frequencies has been
included. Frequency tables can be exported in various formats.

- Internationalization
 TIGERSearch 2.0 can handle corpora (and queries) which include
Unicode characters. (On some platforms, however, you will have to
install a freely available Unicode font first.)

- Documentation
 The TIGERSearch manual can now be accessed directly from the
graphical user interface. A PDF version for high-quality printout is
also provided.
