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: Versioning Machine 2.0
Submitter: Susan Schreibman
Description: Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) is delighted to announce the 2.0 release of the Versioning Machine http://www.mith2.umd.edu/products/ver-mach/

The Versioning Machine is software tool designed by a team of programmers, designers, and literary scholars for displaying and comparing multiple versions of texts. The display environment seeks not only to provide for features traditionally found in codex-based
critical editions, such as annotation and introductory material, but to take advantage of opportunities of electronic publishing, such as providing a frame to compare diplomatic versions of witnesses side by side, allowing for manipulatable images of the witness to be viewed alongside the diplomatic edition, and providing users with an enhanced
typology of notes.

VM 2.0 has significant improvements over the previous release. Previously it was only possible to encode texts according to TEI's parallel segmentation method. It is now possible to encode each witness as a separate document instance. However, not all of the VM's features work using this method.

VM 2.0 also has enhanced image display features. Previously it was only possible to view one image at a time. The Image applet now allows users to view all the images in a witness set together. In addition, all VM features now work in Netscape 7.0 for PC. And lastly, we have provided users with a VM Installer based on lzPack to make the installation process easier.
