jStarDictM 0.5.9 released.

jStarDict is a j2se/j2me dict application which can use any stardict/dict.org/kdic/zdic format dictionaries. Go to http://www.teesoft.info to find the installation instruction and some other documents of this project . jStarDict v0.5.9 is a try to address the performance in some old j2me enabled phones. In that phone file system have a strange behavior which will causestream.skip() very slow. But jStarDict access all dict in file, it need jump in files. I found a workaround for this. I will use stream.read where skip needed. You can turn on this behavior by check "Tuning Skip Code" options in the setting menu.
