The eHammurabi delta 3.1.0 release is our most ambitious release ever. We considered all our user data, feedback, and other technological opportunities before engaging in an extended series of furious development sprints.

Here are some release highlights:

    • Dark mode: changes the contrast
    • Color guide: green and blue text for repeated contents
    • Experimental features: new and exciting stuff
    • Page-specific settings for MultiView panels
  • Content
    • Added a Glossary section for important terms of interest
    • Added a Library section for more information about sources, authors, and contributors
    • Added individual pages for each law group and law
    • Added hover-activated tooltips on internal links to Glossary pages
  • User interface
