Releasing the 0.6.1 version. It has the bug fix added for Word Alignment Interface. Earlier, on loading the data aligned with the Sentence Alignment Interface, the alignments were not being shown properly.

There might still be some minor issues with this. For example, in the case of one-to-many or many-to-one alignments, if the sentences on the *many* side have words with identical names (unique identifiers), there will be problem. An option for this is to augment alignment labels with the sentence ids to make them unique across the corpus file.

In the case of one-to-many or many-to-one alignments, the Next and the Previous buttons can be used to navigate to those alignments. The combo box will still show source sentence numbers and on going to a particular source sentence, you will reach the first alignment that it has. The following alignments can be reached with the Next button.

Version 0.6.0 of Sanchay released on the website (latest updates section).

This release comes so long after the previous one that I don't remember what changes have happened, but there aren't many.

However, from now the releases might be more systematic. Also, source code release that has not happened for quite some time now, is also expected soon.

There is a bug with the Word Alignment Interface that is being fixed and the next release should be after that. Probably within a few days. With source code.
