Not yet.  There are some alternatives I and others have proposed.

Which Corrigida would be that, the Brazilian or the Portuguese one?  And from
which date?

I guess it would be nice to have at least two versions, one each side of the
pond.  And something better than Almeida too, if possible.

Someone mentioned a 191[18] version, Brazilian I think, already scanned
available online.  That could be used to OCR and start a proofread project in
Project Gutenberg (http://dp.rastko.net./), or somewhere in CCEL if they have
similar infrastructure (I think they have, I seem to remember having contributed
there too, but I don’t know if they have the same insfrastructure as Gutenbert).

I have a todo item on me to find an expendable copy of Tradução Brasileira and
scan it.  It may take a few weeks, thought.

Another thing I must do is renew my contact on IBB and ask them if they have
sorted stuff out at their side.

I hope it was not me to misinterpret them.
