Agreed.

That's true if you're willing to change the visible state of Tellico as
third-party programs carry out searches. There are two separate use cases,
you see:

- remotely command Tellico `stick this filter on the stack' and so on,
  so that other apps can drive the Tellico user interface

- return filtered output directly, so that other applications can use
  Tellico as a data source, without influencing the display.

Thankfully both of these seem to be easy to implement, but I think they
should probably go in separate DCOP interfaces. The
influence-the-display stuff might actually belong in tellico-mainwindow,
but I'm unclear as to how to add anything to that, since mainwindow.cpp

snapshot packages for Debian

Hi tellico users,

For those of you who want to test the very latest version of tellico on
Debian but don't want to have to rebuild it, I now have a small repository
I will try to keep as up-to-date as I can.

Important :
Please remember that this is still work in progress, that tellico 1.0
modifies your collections and make them unreadable by previous versions.

The current status is a SVN snapshot from about 12 hours ago. If you want
to test it, add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list :
-For sid/unstable :
deb http://www.imalip.info/tellico/svn sid/
-For sarge/stable/3.1 :
deb http://www.imalip.info/tellico/svn sarge/

If you use unstable, you certainly have apt 0.6 which check GPG signatures
in the repository, and will complain.

If you think you can trust my key (attached), you can add it to the ones
apt trusts (with "apt-key add", IIRC).

For those who wonder, I am the maintainer of tellico in Debian, and the
one providing the backports hosted on periapsis.org by Robby.

I can provide the source packages to anyone who would like them. They have
nothing special, and the patch applied is exactly the same as the one for
the 0.13.8 package.

Good idea, probably useful for folks. I won't add it for the 1.0 release, 
since it's a string change, but it's on the list for 1.1. Thanks for the 
feedback.

Problems getting z39.50 search to work with Bibsys database

I'm having problems getting Tellico to work with the Norwegian book database 
Bibsys. According to http://www.bibsys.no/z/bibz.html the following should 
work:

Host: z3950.bibsys.no
Port: 2100
Database: BIBSYS

But when I try this in Tellico, I get the message 'The search returned no 
items' for every search query.

Any ideas what's wrong? I've tried using both the latest official release and 
the SVN version.

It doesn't look like the bibsys server is returning a MARC leader that 
defines that results as being text. Tellico's MODS converter looks for 
return results that define a <typeOfResource> as "text", along with either 
a publisher or an isbn field.

It's easy enough to change that requirement, which I copied from the bibliox 
conversion routines. Perhaps to being (('text' and publisher) or isbn) 
since I can imagine things other than books having a publisher, but an isbn 
probably means its a book.

Anyways, I'll change it in the SVN tree. If anyone starts getting false 
positives in their z39.50 results, let me know.

Tellico 1.0 pre for FC3?

Hello all,

does/can anyone provide RPMs for FC3 of the 1.0 pre-release version? Just
that I'm impatient to see it, and would like to stress-test the app as soon as
possible?

Regards,

Tellico 1.0 Released

Tellico 1.0 is available for download at 
http://periapsis.org/tellico/download/tellico-1.0.tar.gz

The md5 sum is: 40510766a67c90064d74e452092983d8

Changes since 1.0pre2 include:
o Polish translation from Marek Janukowicz.
o More documentation updates
o Bug fix for searching using external scripts in $HOME
o Dynamically-resized table columns, patch from Nix
o Bug fix for exporting music collections to HTML

As always, please backup your data files regularly, and report any bugs or 
suggestions you may have.

I'll probably branch SVN soon, so you may want to keep an eye open for 
branches/tellico-1.0.x if you track that. I have a couple of new search 
filters that I want to add, that will have string changes, so they will go 
into trunk.

Any translation updates are greatly appreciated. Point releases will be made 
periodically.

Re: snapshot packages for Debian

Hi again,

just a quick follow-up about the Debian packages.

Following the release of the version 1.0, the "official" backports
should be available soonish, just a matter of putting everything
together.

As some are probably aware, a C++ ABI transition in progress is blocking
many things in testing/unstable, including tellico, which can't be
uploaded until all dependencies are available on all arches. So, for
those who don't want to wait, I have set up a quick repository with the
i386 package. Just add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list
file :

deb http://www.imalip.info/tellico sid/

And it should work smoothly. If it doesn't, complain to me :)

I expect the Belgian guy who did v13.8 for SuSE will update to v1.0 soon.

Oops. Forget it, the 1.0 was released sooner that I expected. I'll wait for
the fc3 packages to be available from Dag's repos as usually. Sorry for the
noise!
