Description Christoph Wickert 2008-05-24 15:28:08 EDT
Spec URL: http://cwickert.fedorapeople.org/review/xfce4-dict.spec
SRPM URL: http://cwickert.fedorapeople.org/review/xfce4-dict-0.4.0-1.fc10.src.rpm
Xfce4 Dictionary is a client program to query different dictionaries. It can query a Dict server (RFC 2229), open online dictionaries in a web browser or verify the spelling of a word using aspell or ispell.

This is the successor of xfce4-dict-plugin (see bug # 215169). We now have a standalone application and a panel plugin to launch it. I have packaged the panel plugin as a subpackage, so the application can be used in different desktop environments. The name of the panel plugin still is xfce4-dict-plugin, so the new package will update the old plugin without the usual Obsoletes/Provides.
