dictem-0.7, an extrimely customizable DICT client for [X]Emacs, has been


  - DICTEM can handle dictionaries defined by user.
    This allows to use dictem not only for accessing DICT servers,
    but also for accesing user's databases.
    See Ex.14 in README file for a simple example.

  - added: dictem-client-prog-args-list variable
    that keeps a list of additional
    arguments to the command line 'dict' client.
    This may be helpful in case you use 'dict' wrappers (having additional
    options) or new versions of 'dict' program.

  - added: dictem-option-mime variable.
    If `t' the OPTION MIME command (see RFC-2229 for details)
    will be sent to the DICT server. i.e. 'dict' program
    will be run with '-M' option.
    As a result server's response will be prepanded with MIME header
    followed by a blank line.
    Because of bugs in dict -M (dict version < 1.10.3),
    dict-1.10.3 or later is STRONGLY recommended.

    MIME-ized content can be postprocessed by functions called from
    dictem-postprocess-xxxx hooks. Because the current version of dictem
    doesn't contain such kind of functions, this variable should be used
    by those who program in Emacs.
    Suggestions and code are welcomed as always.
    Have a lot of fun ;-)

  - added: dictem-run-show-strategies function,
    similar to dictem-run-show-databases.

  - more complete dictem-mode's help string (documentation for dictem mode)

  - new examples of dictem usage in Ex.9 section

  - minor fixes in documentation and README

Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
