Program Revisions

bullet11/24/2003: Posted 2Know Version 2.0
bulletGerman and French versions have been added.
bulletA ~145,000 entry German, and ~128,000 entry French dictionaries were added.
bulletDeleted '-' when the prefix/suffix is added to the selected word.
bulletThe 'Prefix & Suffix' grid has been relabeled 'Add to Word'.
bulletApproximately 3500 common words have been added to the end of the dictionaries. Suggestions from this list are made along with prefixes/suffixes after a word has been selected. These words are list in order of 'most common'. This change makes it easy to add common connecting words when building a phrase.  I think this is a great addition.
bulletShortened the 149,000 entry English dictionary to ~66,000 entries. The original list contained too many obscure words.
bulletI have attempted to fix a bug in the animation software. I have never observed the bug so I don't know if I was successful in fixing it.
bulletAdded more tool tip hints - those popup messages that occur when you move the mouse over an object.
