Hermes, paused

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

This is the answer I wrote today to somebody who was interested recently in using Hermes (I fixed the text a bit to make it clearer): It’s nice to hear Hermes still has a relevance here and there, however, I didn’t touch it since Nov. 2006 and I don’t have any plans to get involved […]

Hermes 0.9.12 is ready

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

This version managed to convert a couple of hundreds of sample articles from the arxiv-math. Because those sources vary widely in terms of metadata quality (author, date…etc. records), some of the converted articles look a bit messy. That’s the next Hermes version’s job: to get a bit wiser in terms of recovering the metadata, and […]

Hermes-0.9.11 released

Friday, September 8th, 2006

This version managed to convert 160 out of the first 254 from a month of arxiv/math articles, a ratio of 0.63. The articles drawing diagrams or pictures (e.g. using the xy package or similar) were not convertible by this version of Hermes, and I don’t plan on adding support for them anytime soon. The rest […]

Hermes 0.9.10 released

Friday, July 28th, 2006

This release is a step towards handling longtables appropriately (however, the longtable model Hermes will be able to convert has to have the caption and label at the beginning of the environment, followed by , like this: begin{longtable} caption{…} label{…} the & rest of & it end{longtable} This version managed to convert 32 articles out […]

Hermes 0.9.9 released

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

This version comes with a more scalable font handling mechanism, although there still are some (less used) encodings to be added. Examples of LaTeX articles converted with this version are available here. Enjoy.

Hermes 0.9.8 released

Monday, June 5th, 2006

phew, lots of changes in the font handling matter, besides cleaning: all (well, most of the useful ones, the 7., 8. and 9. maps) the standard named fonts (according to fontname) are now mapped (not tested thoroughly so let me know if you find something wrong); some of the fonts with special names are mapped […]

Hermes version 0.9.7

Friday, May 12th, 2006

…has been released today. It’s the result of a fruitful week: I decided to merge some of my previous tests so now Hermes gets the latex floats (figures, tables) mostly ok. Generic environments generate structure too, now. Next version should have more fonts, should come with a Hermes reference document schema, and should show more […]

Hermes 0.9.6 released

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

Yes, the previous release had a really short life. I had to fix some of the most nagging bugs which appeared in 0.9.5 or persisted from the old versions, they really got on my nerves this time ­čÖé . My plan for the next one is to rearrange the font mappings to make them, or […]

Hermes 0.9.5 released

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

Hermes got updated: a few more fonts, a bit more stylish, and a cleaner document structure. It is a step closer to a Hermes document schema. If you have requests, comments, questions, suggestions, please use this place, so other readers can use the info here to get a more detailed view of what Hermes is […]

version 0.9.4

Saturday, December 24th, 2005

Good news: Hermes development is partially supported until June 2006 by MPI for Gravitational Physics. A more radical version of Hermes is in the works, 0.9.4 was the last one developed within the ‘deadline’ mindset. My plan is to have a Hermes which generates a clean and validable document model, complete with the metadata necessary […]
