Post Announcing Mobidict: A desktop dictionary reader for azw/mobi files

Hi all,

I always wanted to be able to use my Kindle dictionaries on desktop. Hence I am happy to announce Mobidict 1.0 which lets you read azw/mobi dictionaries on Linux/Windows and macOS.

Binaries are available from https://github.com/ismail/mobidict/releases

I appreciate any testing & feedback.

Thank you!

Release History:

v1.1 - 04.06.2018
* Updated libmobi for better mobi file compatibility
* Windows/macOS binaries now use Qt 5.11 (upgraded from 5.10)
* Removed a hack used for broken mobi dictionaries.

v1.0 - 16.11.2017
* Initial release

I released a 1.1 update with better mobi support (Thanks to updated libmobi) and now Windows/macOS builds use Qt 5.11 (upgraded from 5.10).
