SignWriting List
January 17, 2002

Regarding SignWriter...
Yes. I know exactly what we need, at least, from my perspective....I
will tell you about that in the next email message. First, I think
you should know about SignWriter 5.0...

Although for years I worked on SignWriter 5.0, a Java application,
developing new ways to type SignWriting in vertical columns, the java
code is a mess, because there were too many programmers, and too many
lofty ideas, over a period of five years. So the code is sitting
here, and I need to work directly with a java programmer to clean it
all up. That will be done as soon as SignBank 2002 is released. It
will take me a year to complete SignBank 2002, so SignWriter 5.0 is
the "future".

You can read about SignWriter 5.0 development:
