I was hoping to have some more time before the mozilla guys released Firefox 3, but today was the day, so yesterday I took the day off to get something ready by day 1 (and to play some MGS4). Happy to say I got the main issues worked out and have a usable version to release.
Some new things you will see added is the new icons, now a smiley blue icon, and the new options dialog, both a la polarcloud, thank you!
This release doesnt have some of the features I’ve really been wanting to add like:
- Saving words into a personal vocab file in the sidebar or integrating it with a website for vocab study, but I might have something in the works coming up for that.
- Online dictionary lookup (working with someone on this) instead of a local file which will decrease plugin size and allow the dictionary to grow with time.
- A feature to highlight words on webpages that are already in your vocab folder so that when you see them it will trigger to you that you should know them.
Anyways, dispite some rough edges still left to file off, I have submitted the workable version over at the mozilla add-ons page that will go live for auto-update as soon as it gets out of the sandbox reviewing process, in the meantime you can use plugin on my “box” here to the left, so enjoy, and once again I would like to thank all who have donated! It was definately the inspiration for me to get this out in sync with the new Firefox release, so this is for you guys!
ps. there are updated dictionary files to install with the new perapera-kun that you can get from polarcloud’s website: http://www.polarcloud.com/rikaichan/ (scroll down and install the dictionary of your choice)
pps. this is only working with simplified characters at the moment…a temp fix will be released on this site very soon to fix that, email me if you want to be notified when its released
