Created splash logo image and about box

Created a logo image (which may change, of course), and an About box class based on QDialog which retrieves application title and version information from the auto-generated version.h file, and displays it.

Finished and tested

This is now working well, and seems to be pretty solid; I've tested it in the context of the application itself, and it returns the right values. It can also compare another version number to determine whether it's older, newer or identical. I'm still not exactly clear on how I'll integrate this with compilation on other platforms. I've added to SVN, and the other platforms could just check out and use it (turning off the pre-compilation step that generates it); however, if is in SVN, we have the slight paradox that every compile will result in a new commit, because will be renewed each time and will therefore end up being committed. Maybe that's not a bad thing, actually; that has the effect of incrementing the SVN revision number for every build that's done, making the SVN revision work similarly to a build number. I've modified the script a bit so that it does a commit first, to update any other changed files; then it builds version.h; then it commits the rebuilt version.h right at the end. That means the committed version.h will always be one version behind the actual SVN version, but that's no bad thing unless we end up editing code on the other platforms, which I'm hoping will not happen.


#Major version number (unlikely to change).

#Minor version number is changeable, but done manually.

#Build number is yyyymmdd from today.
date=$(date +%Y%m%d)
dateDashed=$(date +%Y-%m-%d)
dateSeconds=$(date +%s)

#This is the file we're dealing with.

#Do an SVN update, then commit to update the revision number.

Image Markup Tool blog

The Image Markup Tool is a Windows application for annotating images, using TEI XML as its data format. Our aim is to produce a tool which creates conformant TEI P5 XML files, but which has a simple enough interface that it can be used by people with little or no experience in editing XML code.
