* Merged local and online dictionaries.
* Flags for online dictionaries as well
* UI enhancement for dictionary-management

Fixed Bugs

New Release: 0.11

New features

New Dictionaries
* a lot (all online)

Fixed Bugs
* Incomplete German localization

New Release: 0.10.1

This is just a minor update: I've added the new icon. Thank's to d-point (www.d-point.org) for designing it.

This is also the first update you can install via "Check for updates" if you have MacTranslator 0.10 running.

New Release: 0.10

I just uploaded a new release: 0.10 (still not the final release).
New featues:
* Auto-update via Sparkle
* Flags for langauges
* Universal binary

Due to the changed dictionaries structure (see change-log) you have to delete the file ~/library/preferences/translator.plist.

Supported Versions of Mac OS X

MacTranslator has been listed on MacUpdate (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/22613) but there's a little mistake: MacTranslator requires Tiger, as it makes use of an API (NSPredicate and friends) that isn't available in previous versions. Sorry for that.

RTL text-flow and first release

I've added support for RTL text-flow (needed for Arab) and released a PPC-only binary.

New dictionary: English-Arab

An English-Arab dictionary has been added. I will add support for correct textflow during the next days.

Help needed: Localizations and art-work

I'd like to encourage users of MacTranslator to contribute to the project. Things I currently need:
- Localizations
- Art-work: an icon and a nifty little web-page would be nice.
Please contact me if you'd like to help: marwes@users.sourceforge.net

MacTranslator added to CVS

MacTranslator's sources have been added to the CVS. Since there is no release yet, you must download from CVS if you intend to use MacTranslator at this early stage of its development.
