Hesperides is an adaptation for Mac OS X of Didier Willis' Dragon Flame, a dictionary for Sindarin (the grey-elven language, invented by J.R.R. Tolkien). It integrates Didier's Sindarin dictionary with a state-of-the-art interface and the Narmacil engine (to display the words using Tengwar).

Release Notes: This version adds Intel and 64-bit support, and requires Mac OS X 10.5 in order to reduce the executable size. It also fixes a bug where one could select the "Sindarin Classic" mode when an English word was selected.
Release Notes: This release adds indexing, which will cause the first launch to be unusually slow. It also adds AppleScript support, support for an English Tengwar mode, improved Engligh entry grouping, improved regex search, a minimalistic history, and a help system. It fixes some major encoding problems in the Tengwar transcription.
