> 1. Basic Notes
> --------------
> 
> 1.1 What is TINA?
> 
> TINA, short for Thom's INformation Aggregator is a simple card-file which
> will eventually have data annotation capabilities. It is being developed as
> an experiment in free-form data entry and parsing. It is released to the
> Free Software community at large in the hopes that other people may find this
> program as useful as I have.
> 
> 1.2 Who develops TINA?
> 
> Tina is developed by OpenMINDS Research fellow Thomas Cherryhomes. He can
> be reached via email, or Jabber at <address@hidden>. 
> 
> Kenny Graunke <address@hidden> designed the icons used in the program.
> 
> 1.3 Where is the documentation?
> 
> The Users Guide is being prepared. TINA 0.2 will have full documentation
> written in SGML DOCBOOK 3.1 format. There will be default outputs for 
> HTML and PDF document formats. 
> 
> 1.4 I have found a bug! What should I do?
> 
> Please e-mail me with as complete of a description of the bug as possible.
> Good information to include in the bugreport can include:
> 
> * Version of GNUstep you are using (if CVS, please specify date of last
> update.)
> * Version of TBook you are using.
> * Steps to reproduce the problem.

> 2 Other Information

> 
> 2.1 Version Changes
> 
> A few of you may have gotten an early pre-release of TINA called TBook.
> This version contains a few improvements over the early pre-release,
> including:
> 
> 2002-12-14: Release 0.1 final
> -----------------------------
> * Name Change to TINA
> * Search Feature Implemented, search happens as you type.
> * Document windows remember their position and size.
> * Fontification of Title

> !!BUGS!! !!BUGS!! !!BUGS!! !!BUGS!! !!BUGS!! !!BUGS!! !!BUGS!! !!BUGS!!
> !!BUGS!!
> Yes, there are two bugs that are present in this version. Please take care to
> NOT do the following things:
> 
> * Do not immediately exit before committing a card (click on another card
> first)
> * Do not erase the title of a card (The title repair function is currently
>                                     experiencing a bit of weirdness. I am
>                                     fixing it for the next release.)
> 
> 2.2 The immediate Future 
> 
> I am still conceptually designing the parser that will be used to annotate
> cards within TINA. More news on this as the parser develops.
> 
> As for what will be added in 0.2, I know that I will be adding a Recent 
> Documents menu under the Document menu, as well as the beginnings of a 
> preferences panel. I am also contemplating minor UI changes to the front
> panel (i.e. an auto-load toggle for an open document so that TINA will load
> that document the next time it starts up.
> 
> 0.2 will be the first of at least two more successive re-writes. The good
> news is that the file format will be compatible for both newer and older
> versions, thanks to the simplicity of the file format design.
