There has been a longer than normal interval between Haiola
releases, but work is still progressing.
- The next release of Haiola will have a better Windows
installer. (The current one is inadequate, so I recommend manual
installation instead, for now.)
- The next release of Haiola will generate PDFs via XeLaTeX. See
http://eBible.org/pdf/ for samples. I still need to add a
friendly way to specify the exact sizes you want a PDF to be
generated and deal with some right-to-left and font issues
before this can go live.
- The next release of Haiola will be able to read the latest
format changes in USX files in Every Tribe Every Nation (ETEN)
Digital Bible Library (DBL) bundles, including references as hot
links. (Haiola has done its own hot link generation for a while,
but it isn't as reliable as it should be.)
In the mean time, I am building a bridge for metadata stored in
Haiola to be imported directly into the International Forum of
Bible Agencies (IFOBA) Find-A-Bible site (Find.Bible), operated by the Digital Bible Society. This will give
people another way to find our nice collection of Bibles for Papua
New Guinea, Vanuatu, Micronesia, etc. One little prototype showing
some of the data that will be imported is at eBible.org/find.
