One of the reasons I like reading on a Kindle is that I can look up words I don't know by clicking and holding. It's a way to increase my vocabulary, and decrease my frustration. It's especially useful when reading a book like Game of Thrones where the author uses a lot of old words that aren't used that often.
Here's the idea: Let the book author load up the dictionary with the names of characters and places. Books like GoT that have a huge number of characters, often include a chart at the beginning of the book explaining all the relationships between the characters. Wouldn't it be great if this information were baked into the dictionary as you're reading the book? Of course someday it will be.
The changes are detailed on the Worknotes page for Fargo 0.98.
As with 0.97, these are nice-to-have fixes and little features that make Fargo a little easier to use. This is the place I like to get to with a product. The basics are working. Now we're gaining experience, and slowly smoothing things out.
So many developers stop when they reach the top of the mountain. But that's just when the fun starts. Imho of course.
We're getting close to 1.0, which means I have to say that in this way of doing things, the numbers don't mean what they used to. There will be, after 1.0, immediately (knock wood) a 1.01 and 1.02. They're just serial numbers. We should probably, at some time drop the decimal point.
On the other hand, I want to use this as an opportunity to reorganize the docs, and get everything off the old content management system and onto the new Fargo-based system. We should be using the product to document itself now. I also want to do some work on the home page for smallpicture.com. It's time to tell people what we do there.
