Summary

Another relatively quiet week on ICE.

Bug fixing taking priority, however a request to render Powerpoint using ICE created some excitement. ICE can now explode a PowerPoint presentation and render it using ICE’s in-built slide viewer. This development is a step in assisting further development on The Fascinator, see Pete’s blog post.

ICE cycle 2009-05-29

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Summary

Another quiet week in the land of ICE, soon to change with Peter’s return from OS.

This week we completed plenty of bug-fixing with Linda concentrating on refactoring DiReCt code with unit tests and making it legible for Simon to understand. Linda also tidied up the subversion unit tests and uncovered the source of a few errors we had logged.

Chem4word rendering was added to the default ICE render for Peter to demonstrate and for us to possibly build on.

Cynthia added the functionality to allow the ICE Toolbar to be used fully in an Ubuntu environment. Previously both html render and AtomPub were failing.

A demonstration course was establish for ICE project use.
