Bug and Feature Tracker Updates
- Thoughts/ Questions/ Comments from GOC Stanford
- not discussed
Amina has been sick, so there has not been a new release yet. Another reason for the delay of the next release is that the two items she is currently working on, the Text Editor and the production of Spurious cross-products, have turned out to be larger issues than they appeared initially.
- Text Editor in 2.1b3
- The problem of having the Text Editor white out occurs frequently on Windows systems, but also occurs intermittently on Macs. Chris has suggested that as there are some problems with the current Text Editor, including poor use of space, that it may better to just redo it from the ground up.
- Spurious cross-products
- When David demonstrated this last time, there was a suggestion that maybe it was simply a selection issue where the wrong menu item was selected. However, Amina has done some testing and this is not the problem. Thus this isn't simple either.
- Visualization of cross-products (Icons for relationships, color coding of ontologies) - Terry
- Terry talked about the pretty "Easter egg" pictures he has made. He is writing a paper with Chris and for purposes of illustration, they want to color terms from different ontologies differently. He reported that it was pretty easy to do via the term rendering. He asked whether it was possible to change the color of the outline around the term name, but Amina said that it is not. He also said that Chris had suggested that it would be useful to have icons made for OBO-Edit for each single letter of the alphabet so that there are a number of options to use for relationships.
- Farewell and Best Wishes to Midori
- Everyone expressed sadness that Midori is leaving the group after so many years of hard work and fantastic contributions to GO and blank-Edit (GO-Edit -> DAG-Edit -> OBO-Edit). We will miss you and wish you well for the future.
- Amina: make SVG icons for each letter of the alphabet.
