When it's Quiet, Things Are Happening

As a father of four (soon to be five!), I've learned to get concerned when the house is too quiet. When my kids were toddlers, and it suddenly got quiet, that meant they were probably getting into something they shouldn't. When they were noisily playing with toys, that meant all was well, but when things were too quiet, that's when white iMac keyboards were getting decorated with black permanent marker!

In much the same way, long time followers of this blog should notice a pattern: the blog tends to gets quieter shortly before some major new announcements are made. That's because when I'm busy hammering away in the workshop, I find it harder to keep up with the blog. I'm working on continuing my series on the optative in Greek, but I'm also busy developing new modules, testing a new update to the Accordance application, and hashing out some possible cosmetic changes (to Accordance, not to me!). So please bear with me, and I'll do my best to deliver a more substantive post later in the week. In the meantime, you can begin looking forward to the release of Accordance 8.1.

By the way, speaking of minor cosmetic changes, I actually let slip some screenshots from a development version of 8.1 in my last post, and there's a very minor change which the sharp-eyed among you may be able to discern. Far more dramatic changes should be coming soon. :-)
