Last week, the main fixed and our colleagues a few of the weekly release of the software bugs. KT's drive to get. A colleague to do the first interface (the interface of the home directory display), along with other new colleagues began to see the refresh mechanism and UI framework. Look changes a lot.

Improvements:

  • Improve the speed of a multi-chapter epub books open;
  • Optimized intelligent rearrangement: does not contain the books of the header and footer does not require trimming, splicing will be better treated page.

Fix the problem:
  • Fix the OTA update does not support HTTP;
  • Fix display blank page pop-up box (such as checking to see more mailboxes, view the copyright, etc.);
  • Fixes the screenshot file name letter "r";
  • Repair of the English capturing encountered words followed by punctuation will not be automatically translated. (For example: apple,)
  • Repair some of the books to open / read the problem that caused the crash;
    (For example: "Slam Dunk End. Pdf", "Professional.Android.2.Application.Development.pd f", "[Klip] 2012-03-07 of 16 09.mobi", "brisingr_paolini_christopher.epub", etc.)

Duokan Dictionaries generated by 'tabfile' program

For all other languages the best way to get a good StarDict dictionary is to find a suitable Babylon .bgl dictionary file and convert it with StarDict Editor. (You'll have to first compile the .bgl file to a .babylon file and then compile the .babylon file to a StarDict file.)
I have struggled with the stardict-editor program with only slight success. I have found the program 'tabfile' works to produce dictionaries perfect for Duokan. I think this will also work with Duokan Lite.

The program 'tabfile' is a part of the stardict-tools distribution and can be found in Debian GNU/Linux and many other distributions. The input file is a dictionary in a simple format with the word at the beginning of the line and then a tab followed by the definition on the same line. The program 'tabfile' then converts the input file into the .dict.dz and .ifo and .idx files.

I have found some dictionary sources that are originally in tab format like freedict or various sources that can be converted to tab format. I then edit the file to remove all tags such as <k>, <tr>, <b> and convert &apos; to ' or &quot; to " and &amp; to & for example because these are not used by Duokan. I build the .dict.dz and .ifo and .idx files from the tab file input and then use 'dictunzip' or 'gunzip' to convert the .dict.dz file to the .dict needed by Duokan.

So far I have several English definition dictionaries and French and Spanish translation dictionaries installed in Duokan built with the 'tabfile' program.

Thanks for sharing

BTW: dictconv is a tool to convert babylon dictionaries to stardict format with one step
Code:
dictconv nameOfTheFile.BGL -o new.ifo
dictconv is available under ubuntu's repro

For me StarDict Editor worked fine with most .bgl files. For the ones that it couldn't handle, because of codepage issues I used pyglossary, a collections of python scripts that comes with a .pyw GUI wrapper, which needs to be started with a special shell script (Linux) or a batch file (Windows).
It allows you to convert .tab files, .bgl files .xdf files and several other file formats to the StarDict format.

Are you hosting your versions of french and spanish dictionaries anywhere, or are they for sale somewhere in their original versions ? I would be very interested, especially if you had found a spanish to french one !

2 antartide: Yes, because K4NT doesn't have any audio parts inside. No external speaker and no audio jack for earphones.
