TagAssist version 2.5 released

I’ve just released version 2.5 of TagAssist, a free utility for translating HTML and XML files.

Download the latest version here.

This is the first update to TagAssist in a while. Although most of the improvements are minor, this released forms a solid base for continued development, so expect updates on a more regular basis now.

Two new features of note in version 2.5 are automated checking for updates, and a log viewer.

Once a week, TagAssist will ask you to check online for updates. If you don’t want to be bothered, just check “Don’t ask again.” You can also check for updates manually, by selecting Help >> Check for Updates from the menu.

There’s also now a log viewer, so you can view the TagAsisst logs and send them to support if you have problems with the program. To access the log viewer, go to the Start menu, and select All Programs >> Assistant Suite >> TagAssist >> Show Logs.


Preview release of Felix version 1.4.6

I’m currently working on version 1.4.6 of Felix. In this version, I’m trying to track down and squash some hard-to-reproduce bugs. In order to help get more feedback on the new version, I’ve decided to offer it as a preview release.

You can download the preview release of version 1.4.6 here.

If you’ve experienced strange errors using Felix from MS Word, you might be interested in trying out these changes.

Note that since this is a preview and not a final release, it’s expected that there’ll be bugs. Although I’ve been using it for my own translation work without problems, please use it at your own risk.

One important new feature of version 1.4.6 is the “View Logs” utility. Go to the Start menu, then select All Programs >> Assistant Suite >> Felix >> Show Logs, to view all Felix logs and optionally send them to Felix support when reporting problems.
