Text Alignment Network version 2021 released
September 14, 2021
Submitted by Joel Kalvesmaki.
Text Alignment Network version 2021 has been released: textalign.net
Much has changed since the 2020 version of TAN. For a full list, see the change log. Some highlights:
- Conversion to XSLT 3.0
- Thorough reorganization of all digital resources
- Applications have been sorted into applications and utilities, and given names, versions, and other documentation. Applications and utilities have a single point of entry focused exclusively on documentation and parameters, to make them more user-friendly.
- New to applications: Tangram, to detect text reuse across two groups of texts. Optimized for classical Greek and Latin texts.
- The TAN function library has expanded to more than 250 public functions, including:
- Checksums (Fletcher, MD-5);
- Maps and arrays, including conversions to XML serialization, and deep operations;
- tan:chop-tree(), to cut a tree fragment into slices.
- Conversions across numerous numeric and data types (base-2 binary, bitwise binary, base64binary, octets, etc.)
- tan:diff() greatly augmented, now running about 40% more efficiently
- The TAN framework makes importing TAN utilities and applications and TAN Oxygen author tools easier.
New developments will be posted at the dev branch of the git repository.
