Change Log

2016 Release

  • Updated Portuguese stemmer to new standard.

2015 Release

  • Overhaul of Doxygen documentation.
  • Updates to compile with GCC.
  • Files are now UTF-8 (without BOM) encoded, which is compatible with Visual Studio 2008 and GCC. Note that this is no longer compatible with earlier versions of Visual Studio.

2010 Release

  • Added Russian stemmer.
  • Documentation expanded.

2009.1 Release

  • Added support for smart apostrophes.

2009 Release

  • Removed "common_lang_constants.cpp" so that the library now consists only of header files.

2.0 Release

  • All extended ASCII characters are written in numeric value, so that you can compile on GCC without needing to encode the source code files to UTF-8.
  • Fixed a few access violations.
  • Fixed a bug in step1 of the French stemmer.
  • Updated the English and Spanish stemmers to the newer 2006 algorithms.
  • General optimizations.

NOTE: This release is now only compatible with std::wstring (Unicode strings). If you need to stem an ANSI string, then convert it to a wstring using mbstowcs and then stem the wstring.

1.2 Release

  • Fixed a couple of bugs when compiling with GCC.

1.1 Release

  • Fixed an error when compiling with Visual Studio 2005.

1.0 Release

  • Added updates to English, Italian, Spanish, Norwegian, and Portuguese stemmers to include latest changes made to the Porter algorithms.
  • Fixed case-sensitive comparison bug in Portuguese stemmer.
  • Fixed bug in Portuguese stemmer where an "i" was sometimes incorrectly removed from the suffix.
  • Fixed a bug in the English stemmer were some words ending in "e" would be incorrectly stemmed.
  • Unicode now supported. If the symbol UNICODE is globally defined, stemmers now work with std::wstrings; otherwise, std::strings are expected.
  • Removed template arguments for stemmers. Now you can just declare "english_stem EnglishStemmer;" instead of "english_stem EnglishStemmer;"and it will know whether to expect either std::wstring or std::string types based on whether UNICODE is enabled.
  • Now licensed under the BSD license.
  • Added more helper functions in utilities.h and string_util.h

0.3 Release

  • Fixed index bug in Dutch stemmer (wasn't checking size of string when it should have been).
  • Fixed a compiler bug where a few inclusions were missing.
  • Added "round" function to utility library for doing accurate integer rounding.
  • Removed unused variable in English stemmer.
  • Fixed compiler cast warning in "find_r2" function.
  • Fixed access violation in "hash_german_yu", "hash_french_yui", and "hash_italian_ui" caused by one letter words.
  • Fixed compiler error in stricmp function.
  • Added "strstr" and "strcspn" char/wchar_t wrappers to string_util.h.
  • Added "size_of_array" macro to utilities.h.
  • Removed debugging hack code in "is_either" function in utilities.h.

0.2 Release

  • Fixed a couple of syntax errors in Finnish and French stemmers that GCC picked up.
  • Added support for German variant algorithm, where umlauted words are expanded to the English equivalent.
