Synpathy release history
February 8, 2007: Release 1.0
This is the first release of 'synpathy' as a stand-alone tool. It was derived from the Syntax-Viewer of the TIGERSearch project at the University of Stuttgart, Germany.
In order to make the Syntax-Viewer editable, following additions have been made:
- a more thorough separation of content (annotations) and structure (features).
- tooltips for edge labels.
- popup-menus above the nodes (single click) in order to build and manipulate the tree structure.
- popup-menus above the nodes (double click) for selecting the content of the nodes/edges.
- 'read' and 'save' of Features.
- possibility to edit all features and to add new terminal node features.
- import of terminal nodes from a text file.
Furthermore quiet some refactoring was performed on the main view components. This was done partly because of an integration of the Syntax-Viewer into 'COREX' (exploration tool for the 'Corpus Spoken Dutch') and partly to make the code more robust, e.g. with respect to empty entries, etc.
Possible future extensions may include the features:
- Adding and deleting terminal nodes
- Making the graphical representation scalable
- TeX export
- Coupling with ELAN
June 14, 2007: Release 1.0.1
This release contains a bug-fix concerning the deletion of non-terminal nodes.
