Thatʼs the second new dictionary GUI submitted in a week.

Well, not really.  I'd regard it as a WordNet interface which has
a different format than dict.  Just correct me if I'm wrong - I just
read the description.

I strongly suggest that you talk with the upstreams of these new
programs, as well as the ones of gdict (gnome-utils) and stardict so
that we can settle with a single GUI with many available dictionaries,
instead of having different interfaces and sets of features depending on
the dictionaries.

In principle I agree that we should avoid adding just another GUI
for dict dictionaries but rather try to make authors cooperate.

Kind regards
