InterText editor - Changelog

<< Back

1.6 (2017-06-15)

Improvements:

  • update to Qt 5.9

Fixes:

  • synchronization broke if new elements were added behind some element (by editing), but the original text element not changed itself (changes done by previous version will still break the text on the server)
  • crash if splitting text with broken XML

1.5 (2016-09-15)

Improvements:

UI behaviour improvements for import/export:

  • create global default settings for file import
  • let the user avoid the import settings dialogs open every time
  • simplify dialog with text file import settings
  • autodetect alignable elements for documents already present in repository
  • simplify import file & format selection
  • simplify export target selection

Fixes:

  • new alignments created from existing documents must also load dependent alignments
  • text color after linebreak lost
  • issues with import of new-line aligned texts
  • XML ID lock fixed

1.4.1 (2016-09-09)

Fixes:

  • broken renumbering of parent elements

1.4 (2016-09-01)

Improvements:

  • update to Qt 5.7 (requires MacOS 10.8 or newer)
  • support for cross-order alignment (needs more testing)
  • support for easy insertion of new text elements
  • creating alignment with "empty" document ("write your own translation")

Fixes:

  • miscellaneous small fixes (undesired creation of empty positions at the end of alignment, resizing issues at the end of alignment view, new alignment dialog behaviour etc.)

1.3.3 (2016-02-04)

Improvements:

  • ignore IDs with namespace

Fixes:

  • fix broken substring search and replace

1.3.2 (2015-09-25)

Fixes:

  • extra large sizes of toolbar not recovered after program start

1.3.1 (2015-09-23)

Improvements:

  • update to Qt 5.5
  • all regular expression functions now support full range of Perl-Compatible Regular Expressions (PCRE), including unicode classes (e.g. now it is possible to use "\p{Lu}" to match any uppercase letter in any language, instead of the previous explicit lists such as "[A-ZĚŠČŘŽÝÁÍÉÓÚŮĎŤŇÅØÆÞÐÄÖÜ]")

Fixes:

  • file names treatment at export fixed; respecting the selected directory
  • behaviour of the "Enter" key in the search bar finally(?) tamed
  • highlighting of multiple replacements fixed
  • replacement in text with markup did not work at all (why did nobody complain?!) and in combination with custom transformations it actually can never work safely under all circumstances; therefore replacements now require the HTML view mode to be temporarily turned off (replacement is only possible in "visible" raw mode, in order to avoid any confusion -- both of the software and of the user)
  • old version number in "About" dialog updated
  • update of the documentation (Guide) reflecting changes in version 1.3

1.3

Improvements:

  • custom transformations of text views (e.g. your_markup > HTML view)
  • custom CSS style-sheet for text view

Fixes:

  • fixed search/replace and highlight within markup (only applies when HTML-view is turned off)
  • issues with undoing status changes around (half-)empty segments
  • correct focus after undo of pop/shift
  • regression: "Enter" in search bar triggering sometimes two search actions

1.2.3 (2014-11-13)

Fixes:

  • Regression: cannot scroll away from the current cursor position

1.2.2 (2014-11-10)

Fixes:

  • Broken synchronization after interruption: update synctime after each successful update comitted to server and update changetime after unfinished series of commits
  • "Enter" not working in search bar anymore - active in alignment instead
  • Keep minimal ("skip"-)margin under all circumstances
  • Correctly restore status after undone moveUp action
  • Clear search/replace marks on any dataChange
  • Resize rows correctly after shift/pop

1.2.1 (2014-09-08)

Improvements:

  • More sizes for toolbar icons and resizing for controls
  • New icons for "merge" and non-1:1 search
  • Updated user guide

Fixes:

  • Crash on abort of change download from server
  • Sorted user selectors in remote (server) alignment properties dialog
  • Minor fixes

1.2 (2014-05-15)

Improvements:

  • ported to Qt5
  • new server communication module for faster check for changes and merges (initial rewrite) - needs InterText server 2.1 or higher!
  • support timezones in communication with the server
  • customize also keyboard shortcuts within the editor
  • editor shortcut to skip between elements when editing
  • check for updates (auto/manual) using the external Qt Installation Framework
  • new tab in settings dialog to make it smaller (to fit small screens)
  • relative path to the aligner (hunalign can now be installed in the same directory as InterText)

Fixes:

  • block auto-saving while text updates are being imported from a server
  • various minor fixes and improvements

Installer:

  • new installer distributing all components including hunalign, documentation, Qt libraries and a PackageManager for updates and uninstallation
  • on Windows limited to single-user install - with sufficient priviledges it can install anywhere in the system, but it will only create start-menu links for the current user!
  • on Linux it will not create any start-menu links at all!

Update information:

  • on Linux, the location of the repository has changed; you need to move your old repository manually, e.g. on the command line: "mv ~/.local/share/data/InterText ~/.local/share/InterText"
  • on Mac and Linux: you do not need to have Qt-toolkit separately installed anymore - now you may uninstall it (if no other applications use it on your computer)
  • if you want to start using the bundled hunalign (which is strongly suggested), edit your "Aligner" settings and remove any path to the hunalign executable you have set before - just leave the plain string "hunalign" in the field labeled as "Execute:" and nothing else - now you can remove your old installation of hunalign
  • on Linux: the installation does not need Qt-libraries anymore, but it still needs some "basic" system libraries which may be missing if you have an extremely minimalistic or very old distribution (it needs e.g. FreeType, FontConfig, XCB, glib, PCRE aso.); all those components should be hopefully automatically installed in all modern user-friendly Linux distributions (please, report any problems or issues to the author if your distribution is not cooperating well!)

  • split element using context menu (in an open editor)
  • choose encoding when importing text files (and convert them to UTF-8)
  • new command to "confirm all (preceding) segments up to the current one"
  • automatically fix broken XML tags on split and text change/update (beware of search&replace!)
  • automatic sentence splitter can now also handle texts with markup crossing sentences and paragraphs
  • improved editor sizing (though still not ideal by far)
  • search&replace is now able to split sentences as well
  • automatically trimm sentences on update and split
