Fix to Release 2.2Top

A fix to TanakhML Project website release 2.2 has been delivered. Content: Embedded fonts in PDF Hebrew Text Transliteration files.

Since TanakhML Project release 2.2, a Hebrew Text Transliteration is offered. This transliteration was also downloadable in PDF. However, special characters were not correctly displayed in the PDF files. This issue has now been fixed by getting fonts used for displaying special characters embedded into TanakhML downloadable PDF files.

Thanks to Yitzchak Dees, Tel Aviv, for having reported that issue!

Release 2.5Top

TanakhML Project website release 2.5 has been delivered. Content: Donate facility (via PayPal).

TanakhML is a non-profit, self-financing project. However, even if website development and maintenance are performed "at home", and are thus free of external costs, one of the key elements for getting a website being actually available to people who want to use it on an ongoing basis, instead of just browsing it now and then, is enjoying a top quality webhosting service. In respect to this, TanakhML Project not only needs a classical, LAMP webhosting (Linux Apache MySQL PHP), but also a Java one (Tomcat, or any other servlet container) for deploying Cocoon. Larger memory heap is also quite important - but quite expensive.

You can help us achieving this "quality chart" by making donations. Donations will be exclusively used for supporting TanakhML expenses directly related to webhosting services. If donations would some day be allocated to other charges, we would inform you, but, anyway, those charges should be directly linked to development / maintenance of TanakhML Project website.

Release 2.4Top

TanakhML Project website release 2.4 has been delivered. Content: Multi-width display support.

The width (pixels) of your display is now detected and, when detected width is supported by TanakhML CSS (see the list of supported resolutions given below), TanakhML pages are generated to exactly match your display's width.

Please, note that your display resolution is detected using JavaScript, so you have to ensure JS is enabled in your browser if you want to benefit from this feature. When JS is disabled, you will continue receiving a 1024px wide page as before.

For more information on display resolutions, refer, for instance, to Wikipedia's Display resolution entry.

Following widths are currently supported by TanakhML:

  • 800px
  • 1024px
  • 1280px
  • 1152px
  • 1366px
  • 1400px
  • 1440px
  • 1600px
  • 1680px
  • 1920px

Release 2.3Top

TanakhML Project website release 2.3 has been delivered. Content: Link to BiBIL (Bibliographie biblique informatisée de Lausanne), University of Lausanne, Switzerland.

Thanks to Thomas Naef, responsible for the BiBIL Project, who proposed us to include in our website a search facility that would link to the BiBIL database for each verse, chapter or book displayed, you can now get in one click all bibliographic references related to a given verse, chapter or book of the Bible that are stored in the BiBIL database.

Links to BiBIL have been made available on all TanakhML Verse Cantillation Structure pages. You will find, on each of those pages, four links to the BiBIL database:

  • 'Vs' for getting all references indexed on the current verse
  • 'Ch' for getting all references indexed on the current chapter
  • 'Bk' for getting all references indexed on the current book
  • 'Bk+' for getting all references indexed on any verse or chapter of the current book

Date: May 23rd, 2006 and (for Bk vs. Bk+ feature) June 4th, 2006

Release 2.2Top

TanakhML Project website release 2.2 has been delivered. Content: Hebrew Text Transliteration. Downloadable in PDF.

Caution: this is a first draft transliteration. Some mistakes probably still occur. Especially, the two following features are not yet implemented:

1° Silent vs. Vocal Shewa: shewa is always transliterated, even when preceded by a short vowel, in which case it is silent and should not be transliterated.

2° Qames Qatan (or Hatuph) vs. Qames Gadol: qames is always transliterated as a long "a", even when occuring in a closed unaccented syllable, in which case it should be transliterated as a short "o".

Transliteration uses Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended-A and Combining Diacritical Marks Unicode areas. If you have any problem for displaying them, just install Gentium Unicode font, freely available from SIL International website.

Date: February 27th, 2006

Release 2.1Top

TanakhML Project website release 2.1 has been delivered. Content: 1° Additional display modes 2° PDF version of some TanakhML pages.

1° Hebrew text is now offered in various display modes: consonants only, consonants and vowels but no accents, consonants and accents but no vowels, and, of course, as previously offered, consonants, vowels and accents.

2° Some pages of TanakhML website are now offered in a downloadable PDF version. Our target is to offer every content oriented page of our site in PDF format, but, today, pages including Hebrew encoded text can still not be offered in this format, as FOP, the Apache Software Foundation's "Formatting Objects Processor" we use to convert XSL-FO objects into PDF documents, does not yet support right-to-left scriptures. We thus expect a next release of FOP to provide you with a PDF version of our Hebrew encoded pages.

Date: February 21st, 2006

Release 2.0Top

TanakhML Project website release 2.0 has been delivered. Content: TanakhML Toolkit Module 4 (Hermeneutics) version 1.

This module provides you with concordancing and calculating tools enabling you to explore gematria (numeric values) as well as simple temura (anagrams).

However, in this first version of our Hermeneutics module, neither full temura (enabling word slicing before applying letter permutation) nor notariqon are already included. Moreover, queries can only be issued at word level, not yet at clause level.

A second version of TanakhML Hermeneutics module will address those specific issues: full temura (with word slicing feature), notariqon and clause level queries.

Please, do not hesitate to report us any bug you would encounter.

New Web Hosting Service ProviderTop

Our web hosting service provider, StarLine Inc., Germany, announced on August 7th, 2005, its decision to stop its hosting services from September 30th, 2005. We thus had to find another provider, offering similar or better services, including J2EE Cocoon framework. We opted for Alacarte Java Hosting services, USA, on August 14th, 2005.

Our domain name still remains, and is now linked to the IP address provided by our new web hosting service provider.
