This document describes the major changes from Moji version 0.8 to version 0.9 and additional important notes for version 0.9.

Basic Installation Requirements


It is recommended to upgrade Moji and all dictionaries to the latest version. Technically, the old dictionaries are compatible with 0.9. However, the latest dictionaries have some extensions which use added functions in 0.9 and they are based on updated edict files where available.

If you have moji and the dictionaries installed from this web site you should be offered the updates automatically during the next update check in your application. If you have installed moji from you won't see the moji update until it is accepted there.

The updated dictionaries are backward compatible with moji 0.8 except for the chinese dictionaries. To use the new chinese dictionaries you must install moji 0.9 as the edict file format has changed for the chinese dictionaries. The new chinese dictionaries all contain the traditional and simplified chinese writings side by side.

The new 0.5 word dictionaries contain special formatting scripts which is utilized by moji 0.9. Old 0.4 dictionaries should work as usual, too, with the standard formatting as in previous versions.

Additional Notes

Please see the notes section on the main page.

List of changes

At first glance nothing really has changed in moji 0.9. Two notable GUI changes are the new layout of the configuration window which now should fit on any screen in any resolution using any theme and the recorded search history which is shared among moji sidebars in all open windows of the same application.

Many of the bigger changes are "under the hood" pathing the way for future extensions and improvements. The sidebars in an application are now linked and synchronized showing the same information and using the same configuration. Configuration changes take effect immediately for any future search in any sidebar. It is not necessary anymore to close and reopen the sidebar after an additional dictionary has been added.

A lot of code cleanup has happened and most of the process of creating the edict files from the sources making them compatible with moji has been automated. Previously, this was manual work and was sometimes not correctly done resulting in incorrectly sorted dictionaries and mislead searches. It is now much easier to generate an updated dictionary or to add a new one. While this does not directly affect the use of moji we hope that dictionaries will work more reliable and correct from now on.
