  • Tomi has solved even more PLX bugs


  • investigate the inconsistent PLX conversion bug, cf guollibusse ( Tomi)
  • solve the remaining PLX bugs one by one (Tomi)

Release plan

The December 1 goal has passed, without meeting the targets. On the plus side is that the number of open PLX bugs have been greatly reduced, and Tomi are squashinhg PLX bugs all the time. It just takes more time than anticipated.

The installer was not easily solved by the WiX alternative - it turned out that the Greenlandic proofing tools installer has the same problems as we have.

Re-scheduling the release plan:

  • New deadline December 20:
    • PLX bugs solved
    • if met, we'll release a 2.3 update using the NSIS installer, and mainly linguistic improvements for SME
  • January 4: new Windows installer Alpha
  • January 10: Beta release, PLX fixes for SMA and SMJ
  • January 21: Divvun 3 release
