words is software for improving your English vocabulary. It can useful when preparing for the GRE, GMAT, SAT, or any other vocabulary intensive examination.
|Operating Systems||OS Independent|
|Implementation||Jython Python Java|
Release Notes: The code was cleaned up. Listener classes were put under a module. Each listener class is put under its own file, so that it is more manageable. A simple property reader/writer was implemented to remember a user's configurations. Window sizes and last practice set are now remembered. The main window now also remembers its last position. The help file was updated. Users' configurations will now be saved under the ".words" directory inside the program directory instead of having many "dot" files floating around in the program directory. Minor GUI bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Code cleanup was done. A splash screen was added to notify the user that the program is being loaded. However, the splash screen can't be displayed (unless using Java 1.6) before the JVM and Jython are loaded, and they take quite a while to load. Hangman starts up with less flicker.
Release Notes: This release adds a primitive hangman game, setting the stage for adding more advanced games.
Release Notes: The search button in the dictionary now works as expected. Categories can be added to or deleted from words. New categories automatically appear in the practice-sets menu. The code was cleaned up.
Release Notes: This is the initial release.
