SignWriting List
September 19, 2008

Dear SignWriting List:

Although we have much work ahead, I am happy to announce the Release Candidate 1 for the International SignWriting Alphabet (ISWA 2008).
Yesterday, September 18th, we installed the ISWA 2008 into SignPuddle 1.5, without any problems. The conversion from the old IMWA to the new ISWA was automatic and flawless. THANK YOU, to Steve Slevinski, for his outstanding conversion software.
(By the way, the problem that Stefan pointed out was related to something else entirely from long ago, and was not connected to the ISWA conversion process which Steve Slevinski designed.)
Now that you all can use the ISWA 2008 in SignPuddle 1.5, we will have a formal review of the ISWA 2008 from September 20, 2008 through October 20, 2008. 
After the review, we will decide if additional changes are needed or if the ISWA 2008 is final and complete. 
Once the ISWA 2008 is finalized after October 20, 2008, no further changes will be made to the ISWA 2008 symbolset.
In the future, there may be an ISWA 2010 or an ISWA 2012, but the ISWA 2008 symbolset will remain the same after October 20th.

So please enjoy testing and using the ISWA 2008 in SignPuddle. If you have any suggestions, please tell us in the next month, here on the SignWriting List.
We always look forward to hearing from you!
More information is coming next message...
