Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Announcing the Beta Release of the Versioning Machine 1.0
Submitter: Susan Schreibman
Description: Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) is pleased to announce the beta release of The Versioning Machine (VM) 1.0.

The Versioning Machine is a software tool designed to display and compare multiple versions of texts. The display environment seeks no only to provide for features traditionally found in codex-based critical editions (such as annotation and introductory material), bu to take advantage of opportunities of electronic publishing by providing a frame to compare diplomatic versions of witnesses side by side, allowing for images of the witness to be viewed alongside the diplomatic edition, and providing users with an enhanced typology of notes. The VM is TEI conformant and utilizes parallel segmentation

The Versioning Machine is now ready for testing, and we welcome beta testers. To aid with the encoding process, we provide several sample encoded texts as well as documentation in the Download Zip.
To register and download the beta version please go to http://www.mith2.umd.edu/products/ver-mach/
and follow the link to ''Download''.

Please send your comments to ver-mach-users@dev.umd.edu
