Developer Update June
Hello Dasher Fanatics!
This is the first in a series of developer updates that will be published a few times a month to keep those interested informed of Dasher progress. I will mostly attempt to keep the information targeted and concise.
Repository Restructure nearly Complete
- Captive Web View for Mobile Keyboards
- Alternative Switch Controls
- Desktop Containers and Packages
Repository Rename(s) Incoming!
In order to comply with trademark issues, we will be changing the name of the https://github.com/dasher-project/redash repository to https://github.com/dasher-project/dasher-web In addition, we will be renaming the “master” branch to “main”. If your project depends on this repository and you are worried about the timing of this change, please let us know sooner rather than later via the contact information below.
Mozolm Proof of Concept
The Mozolm integration proof of concept has been completed and marks a big move forward in allowing for more complex language models to be utilized in a variety of scenarios.
NLNet Milestone Series 1 Complete
Developers completed work on the first series of features suppored by NLNet. This has included migrating documentation to the Github Wiki, drafting a user experience survey, and creating a Dasher desktop proof of concept.
