Experimental Interface at Perseus

January 20th, 2005 by Ross Scaife

A message from Lisa Cerrato, Managing Editor for the Perseus Project:

The Perseus team would like to invite you to preview our new experimental interface. At this writing, the system and design are basic. The entire text delivery system, thousands of lines of code, has been rewritten, and we now have the essentials of the new system ready for testing.

For a preview, please visit the test site here:
http://test.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/

If you would like to report problems, make suggestions or comments, or provide any general feedback on the new design, please send e-mail to: beta-bugs{AT}perseus.tufts.edu

At this stage, we would appreciate assistance in finding bugs, so provide as much information as possible, including URLs, your system and browser configuration, error messages, and the steps you took prior to discovering the problem. As always, we welcome suggestions for future improvements. Our short term focus is testing what we now have; this is only a first step. We will rely upon the input of dedicated testers as we rebuild, refine, and improve the system.

For comments or problems with the main site, as always, please contact the Perseus webmaster: webmaster{AT}perseus.tufts.edu

Please check our home page for further announcements and links to publications. More news will be forthcoming over the weeks and months ahead.

My preliminary reaction: blindingly fast on lemmatized word searches, e.g. for φέ?ει.
