Speller meeting

Release planning

What is needed for a new release:

  • a working installer
  • working plx conversion


We have had our first requests for Windows 8 support, and Office 2013 support (but Office 2013 is working fine under Windows 7).


  • Børre started reading NSIS documentation


  • find an outsourcing option (Børre, Sjur)
  • next week: try updating NSIS ourselves (Børre, Sjur)
    • using Tino's documentation & old docu's from PLX
  • send a request to an NSIS developer e-mail list (Sjur)
  • try to find an NSIS script for building MSI packages (Børre)
  • add Windows 8 support to our installer (if possible)

PLX conversion

The last SME speller has huge improvements compared to all spellers from the last couple of years. There are still bugs to solve, but this does not seem close to impossible any more, quite the contrary.


  • the hyphenation fix solved most issues!
  • sit down and look thoroughly at the remaining PLX issues


  • solve the remaining PLX bugs one by one (Tomi)

Release plan

  • December 1:
    • PLX bugs solved
    • Alpha installer (MSI package built using NSIS)
  • December 10: Beta release
  • December 20: Divvun 3 release
