We presented SEASR and Meandre with an introduction to Text Mining at a workshop sponsored by ICHASS (Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science) on July 28, 2008. “This workshop, Information-Rich Environments for Research and Teaching, aims to give humanities, arts, and social science faculty, researchers and students intensive hands-on experience for improving the quality of their work through access to advanced computing infrastructures and applications.”

Also during this workshop, we held a hands on lab where attendees used the Meandre Workbench to perform some text analysis.

The SEASR Team has created an alpha release of infrastructure and components. This release focused on the execution engine, development environments, components, documentation, and examples. The release includes:
* Meandre Manager – administration tool for users, flows, and components
* Meandre Infrastructure – execution environment
* Meandre Development Eclipse plug-in – tool for installing components
* Meandre Workbench – visual icon-based programming environment
* Meandre Zig-Zag – development scripting language
* Community Hub : Keyword Cloud – end-user gateway to published applications (flows)

Our goal with this release was to reach developers who want to create new component and begin application development with the SEASR environment. We encourage you to download and provide us feedback.

The SEASR development team is hard at work preparing a release of SEASR technologies to date.  The release will include SEASR’s semantic-web, data-driven execution engine, Meandre, as well as components, flows, clients, and plug-ins that will help humanities scholars and programmers to make better and easier use of digital archives and humanities computing resources.  Check back for a release date and news!
