This release includes a number of new features, enhancements and bug fixes.
We have added Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar as the default grammar for Latin.
(From TEI XML originally produced by the Perseus Project and
further edited, corrected and published by Dickinson College Commentaries.
The Alpheios version, based upon the DCC edition, has been edited and corrected by Monica Zugan.)
The Bennett grammar remains available and users can choose which they prefer in Options.
We have added new default short definitions for Greek, based upon Wilfred Major's Greek
Core Vocabulary and the Middle Liddell. Definitions have been reviewed and edited by Vanessa Gorman,
University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
User Word List and Account Enhancements
The user word lists now include the number of times a word has been looked up and the date of last lookup.
The lists can be sorted and filtered on these fields.
A new "Download for Flashcards" option has been added to the user word lists to enable
import of Alpheios word list data into Quizlet and other flashcard applications.
You can now create and sign in to an Alpheios user account using your Apple ID.
Betacode input of Greek text in the lookup box will now be automatically converted to Unicode.
The conversion code has been based upon
a library provided by Anise Ferreira and Rúbens Antônio Rodrigues
for the Greek-Portuguese Dictionary Project.
We have made numerous fixes and improvements to the Greek inflection tables. Many thanks to Vanessa Gorman,
University of Nebraska-Lincoln, for her testing and feedback.
We fixed a bug with lookups of greek contractions that used a right quotation to represent the

Perseids/Alpheios Syntactic Tree Publication Workflow
