|There is no real reason for having separate pages for single- / multi-column display. Merge any functionality left on passagestudy.jsp, which parallel study.jsp does not already support and then make one display page. Next step will be to merge displaylevel2 displays of genbooks with this new, common display page.

|Create a new module type, map, that indexes images as a collection of tuples (image, place name, xy-coord). This could use Troy's papyrus tagger and map images. Add Sword support for dynamically identifying place names in displayed text according to the "place name" vocabulary of a map module.

Frontends actively developed or in widespread use

Many application developers have also public pages of varying nature.

Programming libraries

All our libraries are in fast paced development, please check out our mailing lists

Module development

Module development is fast paced, there are always new texts in development, everyone is welcome to contribute. Please check SWORD-devel mailing list for current projects asking for help or to announce yours.

While our pages Non-CrossWire Text-Development Projects and Module Requests are both a bit pigsties at current rate, they do contain a lot of useful links to projects where freely licensed or public domain texts can get picked up and made to modules.
