Long DescriptionThe plays in the series known as the Revels plays include well-known works from the early Tudor period to about 1700, as well as others less familiar but of literary and theatrical merit. The text of each Revels play, in accordance with established practice in the series, is edited afresh from the original text of best authority but spelling and punctuation are modernized and speech headings are silently made consistent. Elisions in the original are also silently regularized, except where metre would be affected by the change. The editor emends, as distinct from modernizes, his original only in instances where error is patent, or at least very probable, and correction persuasive. Act divisions are given only if they appear in the original or if the structure of the play clearly points to them. Those act and scene divisions not found in the original are provided unobtrusively in small type and in square brackets. Square brackets are also used for any other additions to or changes in the stage directions of the original. Revels Plays do not provide a variorum collation, but only those variants which require the critical attention of serious textual students. All departures of substance from "copy-text" are listed, including any relineation and those changes in punctuation which involve to any degree a decision between alternative interpretations. Press corrections in the "copy-text" are likewise included. Of later emendations of the text, only those are given which as alternative readings still deserve attention. Besides explaining the meaning of difficult words and passages, the editor provides comments on customs or usage, text or stage-business. Each volume contains a glossarial index to the commentary, in which particular attention is drawn to meanings for words not listed in OED.

Article of interest

If you read earlier articles you will know that we had to do a major hardware rebuild and restore from backups. Well we have gotten everything back up and it all seem stable so we are moving on to work on the upgrade again.

We have been working on some handy upgrades on the database and user interface screens in some areas. Although the changes that are coming won't be dramatic from the user point of view, they are very dramatic on the database side of things.

Yes, you as the user will see some changes. Almost all of the changes center around how the company data is being stored. You will also see some speed improvements. But really, the vast majority of the changes are happening behind the screens and on the database itself.

You see, we have been storing the company data in a very old format for a while and planning on how to get it to a new, more effecient format for some time. The goal is to make it easier for end users to get to the correct and most current information quickly but also to allow company owners easier editing tools for their company information and their products.

The hardware issue from a couple weeks ago stopped all development as we worked hard to rebuild the production systems and make sure nothing got missed. We carefully monitored and any time any hiccup was detected we quickly corrected it. Mostly there were a few configuration settings that got missed during the rebuild. Nothing major was missed and we even managed to sneak in a couple minor but handy upgrades along the way. But now that things are back to normal, we are moving our focus back to the upgrade.

Hopefully, the new changes are only a couple weeks away. Unfortunately, because such a drastic change to the database is needed, when the time comes, the site will be off line for a couple hours as the data is unloaded then reloaded into the new format.

Don't worry, you won't get any errors of any kind. You will just see the "we are upgrading" message if you visit during that time. But we will be doing the work in the very early morning hours to minimize impact.
