[sword-devel] Hesychius Beta

I have posted a beta of the Hesychius module and have committed fixes to 
the tool set which support this module.  Display software should 'work' 
without updating.  This module contains UTF-8 keys and SWORDWeb needed 
updating to handle this.  I'm guessing other frontends might not display 
these well, also.

There has been an engine change which modifies the lucene index 
generation to include the 'key' field as indexed.  Previously, it was 
only stored.  This allows someone to search for, "key:someWord".  This 
may, or may not, help facilitate both incremental searching types (key 
or body) discussed previously.

SWORDWeb has been updated and the indecies build.  You can try it out at:


and the module is available for download to your favourite frontend at 
the usual place:



PS.  The reason for making this a genbook divided as it is was to 
facilitate Dr. Bruce Winter's presentation on Friday, using the web 
software.  Since the SWORDWeb doesn't have a nice Lexicon display tool, 
I made it a GenBook, with DisplayLevel=2.  It seems to work quite nice 
this way.  Ultimately we'll probably want to make this an SWLD4 module. 
  Also, if Manfred or others are successful building a native tool for 
Dr. Winter's presentation, I would be happy to change the module to use 
the SWLD4 driver instead if it helps.  Thanks everyone!
