New update today:
  • Fixed 'next' and 'previous' links when displaying a large compound list
  • Added more than 20000 entries to the dictionary (from the current CC-CEDICT)
  • Improved the search for compounds when some characters are traditional and more than one simplified fomr exists. For instance, try searching for: 鯰魚. It will now find the correct answer.

New update today:
  • Search by pinyin: fixed searching for exrepssions with 'erhua' endings. These pinyin expressions are now equivalent: '"jinr", "jin r", "jin r5", "jin er5". However, searching for "jin er" will not return "jinr".
  • Search by English: will display the best matches first. This will for instance allow to find the definition for "idiom" without checking for 2000 or more results...

Enjoy!

More updates today:

  • Fixed some bugs and improved reliability.
  • Added a feature to list characters by strokes count.
  • Added a list of characters difficult to find when searching from radicals. It can be very helpful when searching for a character where the radical is not obvious, but without traversing the whole list of characters.
  • Reworked HSK lists: now the list of characters include all characters defined for a given level and not only single-char words. The list of words has an option to display all words, single-char words only or compounds only.
  • Added a link to this note on the front page.

Enjoy!
