When getting a project from the internet, Chorus now detects several common server error messages, and emits user-understandable messages.
These include the following scenarios:
- Authorization (got the account or password wrong)
- Project isn't where you think it is
- Something is keeping you from talking to the server (usually a firewall)
- The server itself is feeling sick.
Randy Regnier has implemented basic LDML merging to Chorus. LDML is a standard for defining writing system definitions. Within SIL/Palaso, LDML (Unicode Locale Markup Language) is used by FieldWorks and WeSay. The current implementation doesn't attempt to merge collation rules.
Chorus clients are now LiftBridge, WeSay, OurWord, & OneStory Editor. Randy Regnier is now working on the ambitious "FLExBridge" which will allow FLEx users to synchronize all of their FLEx data, including interlinear texts.
