More related-character information has been made available, and several bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release brings Linux support back to Hanzim. Debian and Redhat packages are provided. (These are beta status, tested on Ubuntu 8.1.) Otherwise, this release adds no new features, but several existing features work better.
Release Notes: A new interactive search window has been added so you can find characters based on their components even if they aren't radicals, and words based on their pronunciations without tones. Cantonese is now supported with jyutping pronunciations for all characters. The reader (annotation) interface has been enhanced, as well as the main window and the help system.

Release Notes: This version adds Zhuyinfuhao (Bopomofo) pronunciation display as an alternative to Pinyin, along with a new option to hide pronunciation display completely. The ability to display a character from the current X or clipboard selection was implemented. The radical menus are now consolidated under each stroke, easing lookup. Several other more minor usability improvements were made.
