        Subject: Release of CATMA 3.0


Version 3.0 of our TACT-inspired integrated text markup and analysis software CATMA
has now been released and is available for download at


Various installation packages are provided (for Windows PC, MacOSX,
Linux etc.)

New features and improvements in CATMA 3.0 include the following:

    * a QueryBuilder, which lets you build queries with a few clicks
    * an improved distribution analysis GUI, which lets you highlight single graphs and jump from the chart directly to the KWIC instance of a type occurrence
    * distribution for Tag queries is now displayed as a single graph
    * a results pager for the KWIC view to speed up result computation especially when computing a collocation analysis
    * a context sensitive help based on the CATMA user manual
    * fine grained options to the tell the indexer how to create the word list
    * improvements for MAC users
    * a Property query: property ="myProperty" value = "myValue"
    * improved and updated context sensitive help function

For further details see our website. For technical enquiries contact
Marco ( marco.petris at web.de ) or Malte (malte.meister at knysna.info ) of
the CATMA developers team.

PS: We'll be at the DH 2010 and glad to answer any questions - please
