One of the biggest updates since the Kanseki Repository went online has been taken place during the last days, adding more than 100 new texts, mostly to the sections KR1g (五經總義類), KR1h (四書類), KR1i (樂類) and KR1j (小學類) of the 經部, thus filling most of the gaps in that part. There are still around 250 texts in the 史部, 子部 and 集部 of the original plan that are in the process of being added, but at the moment there is no way to tell when that can be completed. Watch this space for an announcement.

In response to requests from users who would like to directly access texts from the Taisho Canon 大正新脩大藏經, a convenience function has been added. To access texts by the volume and page in the Taisho, simply add the following as location in the browser: www.kanripo.org/taisho/<vol>/<page>. <vol> is the volume to open, the number has to be padded with 0 and preceded with a T, so the first volume is "T01". For the <page> a section indicator has to be added to distinguish the top ("a"), middle ("b") and bottom ("c") section of the Taisho page. To open page 150 of volume 1, the following should thus be entered: http://www.kanripo.org/taisho/T01/150a .

A new version of the texts in the Kanseki Repository is now available in the GitHub user account @kr-shadow. Here you will find versions of the master branch of the text with all markup removed, one text per file. This format is intended for users who want to use text mining and other methods of distant reading with the texts of the repository.

Today a major update of the Buddhist texts derived from the CBETA collection was pushed to GitHub and will be served from Kanripo from now on. This brings in all the changes to the data files as of May 31. It will take a few days until the index updates, until then the results might be slightly out of sync with the text, but this should not be a big problem in most cases and is only a matter of days anyway.

The CIEAS Resarch Report 2015 with a special issue on the Kanseki Repository is now also available through the Kyoto University institutional repository: http://hdl.handle.net/2433/210140 (PDF, ca. 23 Mb). While the content is (at least for now) identical with the articles posted here and linked in the sidebar to the left, it might be easier to read in the form it was originally published.
