I am pleased to announce the release of Fantasdic 1.0 beta2.
Fantasdic is a dictionary application primarily targetting the GNOME desktop but which should work with other platforms, including Windows. Fantasdic is Free Software.
More precisely, Fantasdic is a DICT client. DICT is to dictionaries what HTTP is to web sites: Fantasdic connects to a server to look up words in dictionaries provided by that server. So you might think of Fantasdic as a "dictionary browser".
A lot of love with this release:
- Revamped add dictionary dialog.
- New strategy drop down menu on the main window.
- New stop button in the toolbar.
- New option to choose whether Fantasdic should lookup last word at startup.
- New command-line options.
- Now hold connections for some time and close too old connections.
- New find pane.
- New command-line tools: a basic server, a proxy and some format conversion tools.
- Updated translation: french
