Speller meeting

What is needed for a new release:

  • a working installer
  • working plx conversion



  • find e-mail address for UiT/IT staff that has helped us earlier, send e-mail


  • test MSI package, esp. with admin install and different Win/Office combos ( UiT/IT, Sjur)


  • 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 latest PLX file is substantially smaller than earlier, only 6,5 Gb vs 25+ Gb earlier. The change has happened during the last day or two.

One ommission - that can't explain the reduced size - is that particles like almma, bat, ges, han have been lost in the latest spellers.

Remaining PLX bugs:
