Speller meeting

What is needed for a new release:

  • a working installer
  • working plx conversion


There's a separate document  containing the test results for different combinations of MS Office and Windows versions.


  • study the diffs, especially the NOB proofing tool diff (Børre)
  • Børre has made a new WiX installer with the same registry entries as the Divvun 2.2 NSIS installer, but it doesn't work for the installing user (the KAL WiX installer does work). This is under 32-bit Windows7 with Office 2007.


  • look at combinations of Windows XP and Office (Børre)
  • get a proper MS certificate, to remove the warning users get when installing (Børre)


  • 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

Remaining PLX bugs:

Second PRI


Strange PLX behaviour
Mihkalmas-beaivi 593

It seems that the lexical entry Mihkalmasbeaivi blocks the dynamic compound Mihkalmas-beaivi. This suggest a strange bug in the PLX code somewhere, but we don't know where and how - yet. Needs to be investigated.

  • 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
