This is to announce dico-2.2, a new stable release of GNU Dico.  GNU Dico
is a dictionary server capable of handling various dictionary formats.
It also provides a library for writing new modules, and several
client-side utilities.  For more info, please visit its home page at

This release introduces new modules for handling dictionary formats
(among them, GCIDE) and match strategies.  See below for a detailed list
of changes.

Here are the compressed sources:   (2.8MB)  (2.0MB)   (1.4MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

[*] You can use either of the above signature files to verify that
the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact.  First,
be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball.
Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify dico-2.2.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 55D0C732

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.63
  Automake 1.11.1
  Libtool 2.2.7a
  Bison 2.3
  Flex 2.5.35
  Gnulib v0.0-4957-g2e683a8

The list of user-visible changes follows:

* New modules

** gcide

This module provides support for GNU Collaborative International
Dictionary of English.  Version 0.51 of this dictionary is released
simultaneously with GNU Dico.

** wordnet

This module provides support for WordNet, a lexical database for the
English language developed in the Princeton University and distributed
under a BSD style license.

** word

This module provides the following strategies:

word "Match separate words within headwords"
first "Match the first word within headwords"
last "Match the last word within headwords"

** nprefix

Provides the "nprefix" strategy.  It is similar to "prefix" but
returns a specified range of matches.  For example

   MATCH <dict> nprefix <skip>#<count>#<string>

returns at most <count> headwords whose prefix matches <string>,
skipping first <skip> unique matches.

** pcre

Provides matching strategy based on Perl regular expressions.

** pam

Implements PAM authentication.

* New utility: gcider 

"Gcider" is a window-based application for browsing the GNU
Collaborative International Dictionary of English (see

* Configuration changes

** load-module

The load-module statement allows for a simplified form:

  load-module word;

This is equivalent to:  

  load-module word {
     command "word";

Either string or list of strings is accepted as argument.  The latter
is useful for loading several modules with a single statement, e.g.:

  load-module (stratall,substr,word);
