We're Back with Microservices and Limited Beta
After a summer full of feature requests and three new Segetes implmentations that pushed the codebase in new and exciting directions, Segetes is being released in a limited beta to humanists and archivists alike. If you'd like to be involved in beta testing for developing your own app with the Segetes Framework, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, we've undertaken porting the framework code as a Meteor package. If you're interested in Meteor and want to help development or testing, get in touch with us!

English Translations for Vergil's Works Added
Translations from Dryden and Greenough are now added to the Segetes Vergil site. Simply select the "Translate" button in the text browser tool at the bottom-right corner of the page to toggle the translation panel with English. Translations were mapped using WordNet and open-source version William Whitaker's dictionary, called Open Words. This marks a major step for moving beyond the line-dependent data model and opens a pathway for many more future innovations with the Segetes framework. Have a feature that you think would work great with Segetes?--then let us know at email@example.com.
