Nouveautés

En plus de corriger de nombreux bugs, cette nouvelle version comprend quelques éléments nouveaux notables :

  • General Interface
    • Systematic display of calculation progress
    • Simplified access to utilities (macros) from the main ‘Utilities’ menu
    • corrected display of result tables (line heights under Mac OS X)
  • Search engines
  • Simplification of searchs for words sequences in CQP (you enter the sequence directly)
    • for example, typing ‘because that’ (without quotes) causes the query [word="because"] [word="that"] to be searched
  • Simplification of word search by other engines than CQP, depending on the installed extensions and available annotations:
    • TIGER Search’ extension: search in syntax trees (‘TIGER’ engine)
    • URS Annotation’ extension: search in URS units (‘URSQL’ engine)
  • Concordances
    • New possibility to format Concordances references (when importing the corpus or in a concordance parameters)
  • Editing
    • New full-text search from the edition pages : (equivalent to the ‘Ctrl-F’ in applications : Firefox, Thunderbird, Writer, Calc, etc.)
    • Hypertextual link not only from the Concordance to the Edition (double click on a concordance line -> visualization in the Edition), but now also in the other direction, from the Edition to the Concordance (select the words in the page, then launch the concordance).
  • Index
    • the hypertext link back to the concordance is now more intuitive. It generates an intermediate sub-corpus, so that the occurrences in the concordance always correspond to those counted in the Index. Thus all the conditions of the initial Index query are taken into account, there is no need to check and possibly complete the concordance query manually.
  • Corpus
    • Possibility to integrate a documentation in HTML format into a corpus, which can be consulted in a dedicated tab of the corpus properties and which can refer to websites by hypertext links.
  • Annotation
    • Redesign of the CQP annotation bars by concordances
    • Better protection of CQP annotation saving
    • New URS annotation by Concordances (URS extension)
  • Export
    • Export of the Dimensions of a partition as a table in CSV format (tabulation column separator)
    • New option to export corpora in ‘TXM 0.7.9’ format (to facilitate loading corpora in TXM 0.6.3 portals)
  • Scripts
    • Call of R scripts under Windows fixed
