JSpell Added To Softpedia

A long time ago, and for reasons I can't now remember, I wrote a small spelling correction library called JSpell. It's been available on my website since 2005 and hasn't seen any updates since then. In fact it was all so long ago I'd completely forgotten about it until Sunday when I received an e-mail.

JSpell, one of your products, has been added to Softpedia's database of software programs for Mac OS. It is featured with a description text, screenshots, download links and technical details on this page:

The description text was created by our editors, using sources such as text from your product's homepage, information from its help system, the PAD file (if available) and the editor's own opinions on the program itself.
So after nearly six years of neglect I've revisited JSpell. It's now available from my subversion repository and is being compiled by Hudson. I've already fixed a couple of bugs that were present in the previous version and have a few ideas for improvements.

I'm not entirely sure why it's only been added to the Mac OS section (especially as the build file is a Windows batch file), but I'll raise that with them once I have a new version ready for release -- one with a platform agnostic build script.

It might be old code but it's nice to know that at least once person thinks it might be useful.

3D Portraits

On my recent trip to Beijing I took a number of 3D images, quite a few of which were portrait instead of landscape. For example, here is a 3D view of some building decoration in the Forbidden City.

It seemed daft to have to rotate the images before loading them into 3DAssembler so on the flight home I implemented the required functionality. So today sees the release of v2.1.0 of 3DAssembler which includes the ability to produce portrait as well as landscape views and also sees a fix to a rather nasty memory leak. Enjoy!
