CATMA 4

The newest CATMA version is implemented as a web application. It is available here. In contrast to the older desktop versions (available for download below), CATMA 4 facilitates the collaborative work on texts due to the web environment. Further new features include an improved user interface, new Query possibilities and the option to analyze whole corpora.

A revised manual for CATMA 4 is available online and as a PDF download.

CATMA 3.2 (release date 3 May 2011)

CATMA 3.2 includes various bugfixes and minor improvements like the possibility to synchronize outdated tag databases contained in User Markup Documents with the local tag database.

As a result of a cooperation with McMaster University, Hamilton (ON), Canada, CATMA 3.2 now interfaces with the web-based text analysis environment Voyeur. The user can export data directly from CATMA to Voyeur and take advantage of the rich visualization possibilities of Voyeur. A short report gives an insight on what has been implemented and how it can be used.

CATMA 3.2 is released under the GNU general public license v3. For details see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html

This version is JAVA based and requires JRE 1.6 or higher. This means that CATMA runs on all modern operating systems like Windows, Mac OS X or other Unix/Linux based systems. For Windows users we offer the option to install CATMA with an included JRE. Mac OS and Unix/Linux users please use the installation/update mechanism of your operating system to make sure you have a JRE 1.6 or higher installed.

Intel based Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5 users have the possibility to try out a free JRE 1.6 named SoyLatte. We have successfully tested CATMA on these old Mac OS systems but admit that the installation process is not easy at all. PowerPC based Macs are not supported by CATMA.

User generated files of previous CATMA versions are still supported and will be upgraded if necessary.

Note that the query syntax has been slightly changed in this version. Changes are documented here.
