That is great news AlPe. Fingers crossed that we get this fixed. I am interested in the Aura, but I really want custom dictionaries to work on it too.

You're welcome. I decided to contact KoboHelp on Twitter because I was getting several emails (13 so far) from people with broken dictionaries after updating to 2.5.0.

I posted a notice on the main page of Penelope's Google Code page.

I hope they fix the problem soon (also because it is in their own interest).

I pushed a new version of Penelope (1.19), which supports merging multiple dictionaries into a single one.

Give a try at the latest version of Penelope.

The only constraint is that input dictionaries must be of the same format. (Yeah, I need a deep refactoring of the code!) You might want to perform some intermediate conversions (e.g., to XML or CSV) and then merge them together.

can you return a Word with the keyboard?

Dictionary French, Italian, German I can't get, the arrow closed the dictionary.

Well the Kobo team seems to care about their customers.
I contacted the Kobo support (both the french one and the "official" canadian one) concerning file formats marked as supported but that wouldn't actually work (text, mobi and html files) on firmware 2.4.x and the last version of the firmware (2.4.x+1) fixed it, though I am not sure I triggered it.
Still, this last version introduced its own bugs, mainly on the games (checks, sudoku, ...) so it seems to me that they release their latest development snapshot as soon as they correct a bug but do not ensure that this snapshot is quite stable and has no regression.

Still, I greatly prefer a team that introduces some regression while trying to please their customers to a team that do not heed them at all. And the side effects will probably decrease as the releases pop up and their software "grows up".

The new line in the text is not translated, so I changed some code to penelope.py.
It has no problem on my dictionary (stardict formated). Will it cause problem on some dictionary?



if type(global_dictionary[k]) is tuple:
# single keyword
definition = global_dictionary[k][4].replace("\n","</p><p>")
f.write("<w><p><a name=\"%s\"/><div><b>%s</b><br/>%s</div></p></w>" % (word, word, definition))
else:
# multiple keyword
for sql_tuple in global_dictionary[k]:
definition = sql_tuple[4].replace("\n","</p><p>")
f.write("<w><p><a name=\"%s\"/><div><b>%s</b><br/>%s</div></p></w>" % (word, word, definition))

Yes, it might, depending on the input material. I think I should not assume that a newline char means "open a new paragraph". Moreover, some dictionaries might come with their own markup (in the definition strings).

The issue was raised some time ago, and I decided to deal with it as follows: Penelope only reads the string corresponding to each key of the index, and (implicitly) assumes that it is "raw text". If this string contains markup (or some other formatting convention, like newlines=new paragraph), it is up to the end user dealing with it, by specifying a custom parser (e.g., by editing the provided default_parser.py and invoking penelope.py with the suitable --parser switch).

Of course, since Penelope is free software, feel free to adapt it to suit your needs.
