Publication date: 21.June.2008, 08:25

21 june 2008 – Infrae announces an alpha release of Silva 2.1, plus three releases for Silva versions that fix problems with the Firefox 3 web browser. There are Silva 2.0.8, 1.6.3, and 1.5.12 versions available.

New features of the Silva 2.1 alpha will be announced on the silva-general mailing list.

In the 2.x series the key improvements are:

  • Added support for ‘elaborate’ Code Sources, that appear in a pop-up window instead of a toolbox.
  • When SMTP errors occur while sending notifications, we log them, but no longer abort the process.
  • When PDF/Word file conversion for indexing results in errors, the converted text is indexed anyway.

Various other minor issues have been fixed. For details see the history file included with each version.
