You can obtain an installation program for Windows, Mac or Linux at http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=51.

If you have already installed XLingPaper version 2.10.0 or higher and merely want to upgrade, then you will need to download and install the XLingPaper update file. See http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=107. If you have modified any of the stock publisher style sheets, please be sure to make a backup of your work before running this installer. It may overwrite your modifications.

    More recent versions of FLEx (the FieldWorks Language Explorer program) have a change in exported interlinear text.  Rather than just one language for the vernacular language and one language for the gloss, there are separate languages, one for each line of the interlinear.

    This makes it much easier to control the formatting of a given line of exported interlinear text.  Merely change the formatting attributes of the language element used in a given line and that line will format accordingly.

    This new version of XLingPaper has a number of improvements and bug fixes.

    The main highlights are:

    • Add a command to convert a paper to a chapter which can then be included in a book (such as a thesis or dissertation).
    • Add ability to have an annotated bibliography. See section 4.5.18 “Annotated Bibliography” in the user documentation.
    • Add option to exampleLayout to start example numbering over in each chapter.

    If you have already installed XLingPaper version 2.10.0 or higher and merely want to upgrade, then you will need to download and install the XLingPaper update file. See http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=107. If you have modified any of the stock publisher style sheets, please be sure to make a backup of your work before running this installer. It may overwrite your modifications.

    With this new version of XLingPaper, you should also download and install the XeLaTeX Update (see http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=4#XeLaTeXUpgrade). This update is required before you can produce the default PDF if you need to use mediaObject elements (see section 10.2.3 “Media objects” of the user documentation).

    The recent changes are:

      • Make CreateZipFile command also look for mediaObject items.
      • For collCitation and procCitation which need to insert the referred to book’s authors in the reference, also do switch of last name when there is ‘ y ‘ (Spanish) or ‘ et ‘ (French) like we do for ‘ and ‘ and ‘ & ‘.
      • Allow user to control what letters or numbers are used in ordered lists (ol elements). See section 7.2.1 “Controlling Numbers and/or Letters Used” in the User Documentation.
      • Add an ability to override how gloss elements are formatted when they occur in either a listWord or a word element. This is via a publisher style sheet.

      • Revise user documentation.
      • Add a way to turn off the extra validation checking (via Schematron) so that extremely large documents do not take a very long time to load or save. Done via a validation element.
      • For the default way of producing PDF (via XeLaTeX):
        • Make ordered lists (ol) and bulleted lists (ul) default to using the same indent as paragraphs have.
        • Make mediaObject element work. See section 10.2.3 “Media objects” in the user documentation.
        • Add attribute textalign to the authorContactInfoLayout element to control the horizontal position of a single author’s contact information. This does not work if there are two or more authors.
        • Allow a user to produce an outline format in ordered list (ol) elements. See section 7.2.2 “Creating an Outline”.
        • Add check for .tff or .tif files since these will prevent the PDF from being produced.
        • Fix bug: if an example(chart) had both an exampleHeading and an ol or ul list, then the first line of the list and the exampleHeading would overlap.
        • Fix bug: if some text was selected while trying to produce the PDF, the PDF process would just silently not be done. Now it is produced.
        • Fix bug: If use style sheet override to change font property of a gloss, the abbreviation still comes out with the gloss language element font properties, not the override’s font properties.
        • Fix bug: an ordered list with embedded blockquote containing an ordered list would cause the PDF to fail to be produced.
        • Fix bug: if a publisher style sheet had a listLayout element and the indent-before attribute was not overtly set, the PDF would fail to be produced.
        • Fix bug: if a publisher style sheet indicated space-and-a-half spacing and there was a paragraph, followed by a block quote, followed by a paragraph, then there was too much vertical spacing before the block quote material.
        • Fix bug: if a publisher style sheet indicated space before a paragraph, an endnote could have too much vertical space between the first and second lines.
      • In the web page output, if an endnote was inside a comment element, it was still being shown when it should not have been.
      • When an interlinear text does not have a short text title, just show line number, not a colon and the line number.
      • Fix bug in Set Reference command for exampleRef elements: if somehow the num and letter values are different, if in the Set Reference command you choose the num value, the letter value does not get changed.
      • Document how to use the Search / Find Element command.
      • Ensure that if the text and textref attributes of an interlinear element in an interlinear-text do not match, that the textef is set to the text value.
      • Fix typo which caused getting a list of content types to not work on Linux and Mac.
      • Fix bug: If a section title contained a comment, the comment showed up in the PDF bookmarks.
      • Fix three bugs in the Converting an Endnote XML references file to XLingPaper Format process: edition number in a collection was treated as a volume number; a webpage could have an empty url element; and a book could have a series editor but no series title. Also use custom6 to hold the refWork ID or try to generate an ID by using the author name, date, and first part of the title.
      • For the RenderX way of producing PDF:
        • Fix bug: PDF could fail to be produced when using a publisher style sheet if author contact information was used.

    This new version of XLingPaper has a number of improvements and bug fixes.

    The main highlights are:

    • Allow a tablenumbered element to contain an image file (which, presumably, will be of a table).
    • Add ability to have a book contain a collection of papers (each paper as a chapter).  See section 17 “Chapters in a Collection Volume” in the user documentation.
    • Add hangingIndent element as a kind of paragraph. See section 16 “Hanging Indent Paragraph” in the user documentation.
    • Add ability to override the publisher style sheet override for langData, gloss, and free elements. This is for the rare cases where the publisher style sheet override is incorrect in a particular case.

    You can obtain an installation program for Windows, Mac or Linux at http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=51.

    If you have already installed XLingPaper version 2.10.0 or higher and merely want to upgrade, then you will need to download and install the XLingPaper update file. See http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=107. If you have modified any of the stock publisher style sheets, please be sure to make a backup of your work before running this installer. It may overwrite your modifications.

    With this new version of XLingPaper, you should also download and install the XeLaTeX Update (see http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=4#XeLaTeXUpgrade). This update is required before you can produce the default PDF if you need to have footnotes be double spaced.

    The recent changes are:

    • 2.24.0 17 September 2013
      • Add SIL-UND Thesis style sheet to canned set of publisher style sheets.
      • Allow a tablenumbered element to contain an image file (which, presumably, will be of a table).
      • Add ability to have a book contain a collection of papers (each paper as a chapter).
      • Add hangingIndent element as a kind of paragraph. See section 16 “Hanging Indent Paragraph” in the user documentation.
      • Add ability to override the publisher style sheet override for langData, gloss, and free elements. This is for the rare cases where the publisher style sheet override is incorrect in a particular case.
      • Fix bug in converting gloss material to abbrRefs: if there were two or more delimiters before an embedded object, then only the first delimiter was kept.
      • Fix bug which would not show a sectionRef to a part. It also did not show parts correctly in the sectionRef chooser in XXE.
      • Fix bug in how section numbers show in XXE in a multi-part book (only a problem for XXE version 5.3).
      • Fix bug in how gloss elements shown in XXE when in a listWord or word element (used prose form instead of example form).
      • For the default way of producing PDF (via XeLaTeX):
        • Fix a bug which caused the PDF to fail to be produced when an indexedItem was the first thing in a dt element.
        • Fix bug which failed to render footnotes doublespaced (or space-and-a-half) when the style sheet said to.
        • Fix bug which caused the PDF to fail to be produced when an abbrRef element was part of a section title.
        • Fix bug which once in a while caused the PDF to fail to be produced on Windows systems when langData was in a paragraph and non-English hyphenation of the paper was in effect.
        • Fix bug which could cause a footnote text to not appear at the bottom of a page when there was an interlinearSource element within a listInterlinear.
        • Fix bug which caused the PDF not to be produced when using automatically wrapped interlinears and there was an interlinear in a table.
        • Fix bug which caused the PDF not to be produced when using a dl (definition list) in a chart in a figure with a caption.
        • Add a new attribute to the dl element: when showddOnNewLineInPDF is set to ‘yes’, then each dd after a dt will start on a new line.
        • Fix bug: when there was a ul (unordered list) in an endnote in an example, the list would start overlapping on top of the last line of the preceding paragraph and would also have it’s last line overlap on top of the first line of a following paragraph.
      • When using a style sheet, for the RenderX way of producing PDF, Word output, and Open Office output, fix a bug when using author contact info which did not show the author contact info (RenderX way of producing) or produced a blank result (Word and Open Office output).
      • Overtly state in the user documentation that it is a known issue that morpheme-aligned interlinears will not render correctly in the RenderX PDF, Word and Open Office output formats.
      • When a document is using the content control mechanism (see section 15 “Content Control” in the user documentation), you can now control whether all possible content shows in the editor or just the currently selected content.
      • Make all new file templates have the small caps type element use font-family=”Charis SIL Small Caps” instead of font-variant=”small-caps”.

    • Provide a way to have the XLingPaper menu options be shorter so they fit on small computer screens.
    • Remove requirement that the page layout parameters of a publisher style sheet all have the same unit of measure.
    • With publisher style sheets: If a reference item ends in a question mark or an exclamation mark and the textafter material begins with a period, do not show the period.

    You can obtain an installation program for Windows, Mac or Linux at http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=51.

    If you have already installed XLingPaper version 2.10.0 or higher and merely want to upgrade, then you will need to download and install the XLingPaper update file.

It may overwrite your modifications. In addition, you should download and install the XeLaTeX Update (see http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=4#XeLaTeXUpgrade). This update is required before you can produce the default PDF if you are using the framed unit capability (added in version 2.20.0).

    The recent changes are:

  • 2.23.0 11 June 2013
    • Add showinlandscapemode attribute to all section level elements, chapter, chapterBeforePart, part, preface, contents, acknowledgements, glossary, references, and selectedBibliography elements. This only works for the default way of producing PDF (via XeLaTeX).
    • Add showcommentinoutput attribute to the lingPaper element. When it is set to ‘yes’, the output includes comment elements. The default setting is ‘no’.
    • Add prose-textTextLayout to publisher style sheet. This controls how prose-text material is to be output.
    • Fix bug: if using a publisher style sheet where the first paragraph of a section is not have an indent and if the section had a shortTitle, the first paragraph was still indented.
    • For the “Produce Word 2003 Document” and “Produce Open Office Document” commands, if an example or table is in an endnote, add a warning message in the output that it is missing. Include the ID of the missing element if available.
    • Removed keyboard short cuts for the “Produce Word 2003 Document” and “Produce Open Office Document” commands.
    • Provide a way to have the XLingPaper menu options be shorter so they fit on small computer screens.
    • Remove requirement that the page layout parameters of a publisher style sheet all have the same unit of measure.
    • With publisher style sheets: If a reference item ends in a question mark or an exclamation mark and the textafter material begins with a period, do not show the period.
    • Added refAuthorName, refAuthorLastName, and refAuthorLastNameLayout elements so one can format an author’s last name differently (when using a publisher style sheet).
    • Made abbrTerm element contain optional object elements so one can control things like small caps for Bantu noun classes (e.g. in class 6a, the a is always a, not small caps a).
    • Added abbreviationsInTableLayout in publisher style sheet to control how the abbreviations which occur in a table appear.
    • For page header/footer layouts in publisher style sheets, allowed fixedText to include embedded elements like object.
    • For example layouts in publisher style sheets, allowed control over whether the number has parens, ends with a period, and whether the list letters end with a period or a closing parenthesis.
    • In publisher style sheets, add a way to insert text before the page number(s) of a citation (which comes after the colon after the date).
    • Added a new element and several attributes to publisher style sheet elements to handle UNDSIL thesis style sheet requirements:
      • Added appendicesTitlePageLayout element to backMatterLayout to handle separate “Appendices” page.
      • To contentsLayout element, added these attributes:
        • indentchapterline

        • pageLabelInListOfTables
    • Improve the CreateZipFile command to also include any hyphenation exception files.
    • For reference items for which there is no known author, add a way to show the title in the author position. (Done via a showAuthorName attribute on the refAuthor element.)
    • For the web page with publisher style sheet output, improve alignment of list definition letters and definitions.
    • For the default way of producing PDF (via XeLaTeX):
      • Allow a plain text chart to have a XeLaTeXSpecial attribute of ‘singlespacing’ to make it be single spaced when the document is space-and-a-half or double spaced.
      • Added several attributes on the referencesLayout element to allow for an “author over date” style of showing the references.
      • Add a XeLaTeXSpecial attribute of ‘fix-final-landscape’ to deal with cases where the final main item in a document is set to show in landscape mode and, as a result, the page numbers in the table of contents are not shown correctly.
      • Fixed bug: when using word elements in listWord examples, the initial listWord failed to process any embedded word elements.
      • Fix bug: the PDF would fail to be produced if a figure contained a chart and the last thing in the chart was a <br/> element.
      • Fix bug: when a style sheet said that the author name in the references section should use a particular font-family or font-variant, the family or variant style continued throughout the entry.
      • Fix bug: The page number in a list of numbered tables could be one off if the table appeared at the top of a page.
    • Fix bug in process which converts abbreviations in glosses to abbrRefs: if the gloss contained a word with an apostrophe, the process would fail with a message of “doExecute: Exception caught:unrecognized operator name”.

    The main highlights are:

    • Add automatic table width calculations for tables with no embedded tables, no column spans, no row spans, and no width attributes for the default way of producing PDF. See section 11.17.1.1 ‘Known limitations of using XeLaTeX’ (first bullet point) in the user documentation.
    • Add a CreateZipFile command which creates a zip file containing the main document file as well as all included (aka referenced) files and image files. See section 11.45 ‘Create a Zip File of My Document’ in the user documentation.
    • Add ability to publisher style sheets to control the indent for the initial line of the footnote text (how much space appears before the superscript footnote number in the footnote text at the bottom of the page).
    • Add content control mechanism. See section 15 ‘Content Control’ in the user documentation.
    • Add ability to have more than one line in each word and listWord example. One can now insert an extra word element for each such extra line.
    • Rework how the automatic wrapping of interlinears works in order to fix problems where some aligned units went off the right margin and also to fix proper wrapping of long free translations.

    You can obtain an installation program for Windows, Mac or Linux at http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=51.

    If you have already installed XLingPaper version 2.10.0 or higher and merely want to upgrade, then you will need to download and install the XLingPaper update file. See http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=107. If you have modified any of the stock publisher style sheets, please be sure to make a backup of your work before running this installer. It may overwrite your modifications. In addition, you should download and install the XeLaTeX Update (see http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=4#XeLaTeXUpgrade). This update is required before you can produce the default PDF if you are using the framed unit capability (added in version 2.20.0).

    The recent changes are:

  • 2.22.0 11 April 2013
    • Add footnoteIndent element to publisher style sheet. It controls how much space appears before the superscript footnote number in the footnote text at the bottom of the page.
    • Add content control mechanism. See section 15 ‘Content Control’ in the user documentation.
    • Add ability to have more than one line in each word and listWord example. One can now insert an extra word element for each such extra line.
    • Fix “Click to set font info” command to not set the font-family to the default name when Spanish and French UI being used.
    • Add a CreateZipFile command which creates a zip file containing the main document file as well as all included (aka referenced) files and image files.
    • Fix section 5.8 “Headings on Examples” to mention that these headings can occur on any kind of example.
    • Make sure the language element id and the type element id have a white background (some versions of XXE showed it as the color of the preceding id background color).
    • For the default way of producing PDF (via XeLaTeX):
      • Add automatic table width calculations for tables with no embedded tables, no column spans, no row spans, and no width attributes.
      • Rework how the automatic wrapping of interlinears works in order to fix problems where some aligned units went off the right margin and also to fix proper wrapping of long free translations.
      • Make the XeLaTeXSpecial attribute value ‘pagebreak’ work on a tr element so a user can force a page break on a row. It causes the page break *before* the current row (the tr element); therefore the current row shows on the next page.
      • If an endnote has an example in it and if that endnote is in a table cell with its width attribute set, it would fail to produce the PDF. We now ignore the width attribute in such cases.
      • Fix bug: when td or th elements in the first row of a table contained width attributes and the table did not have any colspan attributes, the width was not passed down to other td and th elements. Also, this process of passing down width attributes failed to work correctly when there was a rowspan at the top. We longer try to pass the width values down when there is a rowspan at the top.
      • Fix bug: when using autowrap in interlinears and have two free elements in a row without a lang attribute set, if the first free does not have any text material in it, the PDF could fail.
      • Fix bug: when using automatic wrapping of interlinears, showing ISO codes, and when there is an example with listInterlinears that (i) have different ISO codes and (ii) have an exampleHeading before the first listInterlinear, the content of the first listInterlinear was not always shown correctly.
      • Fix bug: A blockquote in an endnote within a table could cause the PDF to not be produced.

    The main highlights are:

    • Add ability to publisher style sheets to control the indent for any second and following interlinear line groups and to control the vertical space between any second and following interlinear line groups.
    • Add ability to control the column widths used in any automatically generated table of abbreviations used.
    • Let showLevel attribute of contents element have a value of 0 so that one can have a book whose table of contents shows chapters without any sections.
    • Enable paragraphs and continuation paragraphs between interlinears in an interlinear text.

    You can obtain an installation program for Windows, Mac or Linux at http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=51.

    If you have already installed XLingPaper version 2.10.0 or higher, then you will need to download and install the XLingPaper update file.  See http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=107.  If you have modified any of the stock publisher style sheets, please be sure to make a backup of your work before running this installer.  It may overwrite your modifications.

    In addition, you should download and install the XeLaTeX Update (see
    http://www.xlingpaper.org/?page_id=4#XeLaTeXUpgrade).  This update is required before you can produce the default PDF if you are using the framed unit capability (added in version 2.20.0).

    The recent changes are:

    • 2.21.0 21 February 2013
      • To publisher style sheets, add a new interlinearMultipleLineGroupLayout element to the contentLayout section. It has two attributes:
        • indentOfNonInitialGroup: the indent to use for any second and following interlinear line groups;
        • spaceBetweenGroups: the vertical space to use between any second and following interlinear line groups.
      • Add three attributes to the abbreviationsShownHere element to control the width of the abbreviation column (abbrWidth), the equals sign column (equalsWidth), and the definition column (definitionWidth). This is only used when the abbreviations are shown as a table.
      • Make sure that if the abbreviations are shown as a table and any take more than a single line, that the information aligns at the top of the row in the table.
      • Let showLevel attribute of contents element have a value of 0 so that one can have a book whose table of contents shows chapters without any sections.
      • Add useappendixlabelbeforeappendixletter attribute in contentsLayout element of publisher style sheet to allow insertion of appendix label before the appendix letter in the contents.
      • Add useperiodafterappendixletter attribute in contentsLayout element of publisher style sheet to allow insertion of a period after the appendix letter in the contents and PDF Bookmarks.
      • Add useLabel for abstract layout in publisher style sheet documentation.
      • Enable paragraphs and continuation paragraphs between interlinears in an interlinear text.
      • For the default way of producing PDF (via XeLaTeX):
        • Fix bug which caused the PDF to not be produced when a listWord or listSingle element was in an example in an endnote and that endnote was in a table cell (td element).
        • Fix bug which caused the PDF to not be produced when a period was immediately followed by a special character such as an underscore.
        • Fix a bug where using the showinlandscapemode attribute on an appendix element could cause the PDF not to be produced when not using a style sheet.
        • Fix bug which failed to show the content of a sectionRef in a secTitle in the contents and in PDF bookmarks.
        • Fix bug which caused the PDF to not be produced when using text-transform=’uppercase’ for back matter items in books.
        • Make XeLaTeXSpecial attribute value of ‘pagebreak’ work for a refWork element.
        • Make XeLaTeXSpecial attribute value of ‘pagebreak’ work for a blockquote element.
        • Fix bug which failed to show output for abbreviation definitions in an endnote.
        • Fix bug which failed to produce PDF when there was a framedType element but no framedUnit element.
      • For web pages without a style sheet, fix a bug which would cause an endnote to not show correctly in many browsers.
      • Fix bug which would cause any “textafter” material in a collCitationItem in the reference section of a publisher style sheet to be shown inappropriately when “fleshing out” the citation information.
      • Fix bug which failed to show the content of an appendixRef or exampleRef in a secTitle in the contents and in PDF bookmarks.
      • For EBook output: fix bug which would fail to produce an EBook if the file name contained an underscore character.
      • For web page with a style sheet and for EBook outputs, fix the document title so it does not include the text of any endnote. (In a web page, this title shows at the very top of the browser window; in and EBook, it shows on the cover page.)
      • Update GIAL thesis publisher style sheet.
      • Add ORCID to author element (ORCID = Open Researcher and Contributor ID; http://about.orcid.org/)
      • Add Schematron check for valid values for table cell widths.
      • Add Schematron check for two or more lines in an interlinear lineGroup with different number of wrd elements.
      • Modify Schematron check for two or more lines in an interlinear lineGroup with different number of wrd elements to make it ignore when a wrd element contains an exampleRef.

    Uppsala Universitet has recently published The Gilaki Language, a 445 page book.  This is an English translation and expansion of the original work Giljanskij jazyk by V.S. Rastorgueva, A.A. Kerimova, A.K. Mamedzade, L.A. Pireiko, and D.I. Edel’man.

    Ron Lockwood used XLingPaper to do a complete edit and reformatting of it.  He also interlinearized the texts.

    You may obtain a PDF of the book at http://uu.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2:560728 (scroll to the bottom and click on “fullText”).

    My understanding is that the publisher took the actual PDF produced via XLingPaper and added the front matter to it.
