current ICU CVS. ICU 2.0 will be released in about a month, and
includes a number of API changes, so I don't want us working with an
Those parts of Sword that use ICU (UTF8Transliterator) have been updated
to use the new API. And our current CVS of icu-sword has been build
tested on Borland C++ Builder 5, VC++ 6, RH Linux 7.1, and Yellow Dog
Linux 2.0 (a PPC distro). I tried building on Mac OS X and it failed,
but so does the official release.
I succeeded in building Diaspora with UTF8Transliterator and had the
transliteration working well, albeit slowly. Unfortunately, I had a
crash that caused my trial copy of Borland to decide my trial was over
30 days ahead of schedule. So a release of the new Diaspora, featuring
Roman transliteration and a few Palm Bible Reader-specific fixes, is
going to have to wait until Monday at least, when I'll be able to get a
real copy of Borland.
