Previous TXM 0.8.0 versions


In addition to fixing many bugs, this new version includes some notable new elements,

Improved installation

  • TXM is now installed in a directory dedicated to its version. This makes it possible to use different versions of TXM at the same time, for example TXM 0.7.9 and TXM 0.8.0;
  • it is no longer necessary to painstakingly install TreeTagger yourself then link to TXM: two new TXM extensions now allow you to download and install in a few clicks both TreeTagger and two default language models (en and fr).

Improved user session

  • all calculation results can now be kept between two TXM sessions, either on demand (default operating mode) or systematically;
  • all commands now include the setting of all their parameters from the results window in a dedicated area. This makes it much easier to refine the results. For example, you can easily adjust the queries to use or the structure to display in a Progression, without having to relaunch the command and enter all its parameters.
    Consequences :
    • for most commands, you must first specify one or two mandatory parameters in the dedicated area before you can obtain a result by pressing the Calculate button in the results window;
    • the re-calculation of a result causes the re-calculation of all the results which depend on it (its descendants in the Corpus view): for example, recalculating a lexical table recalculates the tables of specificities or the AFCs built from it ;
    • the results, tables or graphs, can be updated either as soon as one of the parameters is modified (operating mode called “electric”, deactivated by default), or on demand by pressing the “[re-]calculate” button (in this operating mode, an “asterisk” mark is displayed in the window tab as soon as one of its parameters is modified, to indicate that the display of the results can be refreshed) ;
    • New preferences:
      • TXM > User > Automatic recalculation when changing a parameter: a result is recalculated as soon as one of the parameters of the command is modified;
      • TXM > User > Backup all default results (persistence): all new results are kept between TXM sessions;
  • a result can be cloned, with or without its descendants, for example to compare variants of calculations;
  • graphic display variants (font type or font size, background color, etc.) can be adjusted directly from the results window in a dedicated toolbar.

Improved annotation tools

  • You can now correct or add simple word properties from a concordance, such as TreeTagger’s “enpos” and “enlemma” properties. This annotation mode has been added to the initial annotation modes of word sequences;

Improved import

  • the metadata file “metadata.*” can now be read either in .ods (LibreOffice Calc), .xlsx (MS Excel) or .csv format;
  • the import and the loading of corpora are faster because TXM does not restart the engines during these treatments anymore.

Installation Prerequisites

  • you need to have ‘new software installation privilege’ on your machine to install TXM
  • you need Internet access
