Release Day activity

  • Built and tested a fresh installer.
  • Discovered a bug with interface file loading -- menus ended up with a yellow background.
  • Tried to fix this by various strategies to trigger a repaint of the component (being a TComponent descendant, it lacks actual Refresh, Invalidate, and Repaint methods). Seemed to work on most machines, but on a test install on Arugula it failed. This may be some kind of conflict with a graphics driver.
  • Logged this as a bug on the Website.
  • Posted a request for help to the Borland internationalization list (newsgroup home for Tnt components).
  • Rebuilt, tested, tweaked and rebuilt the app and installer several times. Final test was in Lab B, where the screen settings were problematic (Large Fonts?), so I had to go back to the app and set Scaled = False and AutoScroll = False on every form. This should probably also be done for Transformer.
  • Final release seems OK tested on a variety of machines.
  • Updated the Website.
  • Added a Projects page showing three projects using the tool.
  • Tweaked the site menu settings to make it a bit smaller.
  • Created a project summary inc file and linked it into the future HCMC site projects page.
  • Added a link to the blog from the site menu.
  • Posted an announcement to the TEI list.
  • Tried to post to TAPoR news feed, but no sign of the capability on the site! The My News tab has disappeared. I find that site hopelessly confusing; every time I click on something it opens a new tab in my browser with a small, unhelpful bit of info.

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.
