Release Notes: An additional label, 0w (zero with slash), was added in the machine_n.kcl classifier.
Release Notes: A small memory leak was fixed in rec_init(), and thus also in rel_init() and rep_init(). Error corrections were made in the software copy protection module. Wrong messages in Uninstall.exe were corrected. An error in processing empty images with GENERAL_PREP_ONLY was fixed. A rare error in binarization of gray images with a parameter setting different from PREP_GRAYTOBIN_MEDIUM was fixed. The algorithms for image zooming were improved. An additional parameter value, PREP_GRAYTOBIN_UNIFORM, was added to binarize gray images with one threshold only.
Release Notes: re_closeimagefile() didn't close *.ras files correctly. The Ispell parameters ispell_config, ispell_minlen, and ispell_maxlen were moved from the ReSpellParm structure into the ReSpellInit structure, as they have to be set before Ispell initialization. The int data types in the ReSpell data structures have been declared as short to ensure correct 8-byte-alignment on different platforms.
Release Notes: Respell is now supported for Visual Basic. To support respell for Visual Basic, the integration of respell.h in kadmos.h was necessary.
Release Notes: All KADMOS code pages are now fully supported in respell.
Release Notes: New classifier computation strategies were added. New classifiers are provided for Old German Fraktur. Dictionary support is provided with an integration of the ispell program.
Release Notes: All handprint classifiers were improved with new samples. Code pages are enumerated differently. New codepages were added. Multibyte representations in Unicode are supported. Space for labels is dynamically allocated by re_init(). An improved Java sample is provided for the DLL version.
Release Notes: TIFF image handling with PHOTOMETRIC_MINISBLACK has been fixed. A rare error with noisy images in rel_do() and rep_do() has been fixed. A potential memory leak in re_writeimage() has been fixed. Swapped coordinates with detected vertical lines (GRID_LINE_V): left-top, width-height have been fixed. A sporadic protection error with mixed fonts (Jumbo*.rec, Numplus*.rec) has been fixed. A re_image2hbitmap() function has been added.
Release Notes: A new feature extraction method with improved recognition accuracy is now used. More fast and small classifiers (Jumbos_s_*.rec, Ttf_s_*.rec, Hand_s_*.rec, ...) were added for time- or memory-critical recognition tasks (such as pen computing). Speed and accuracy of these classifiers are comparable to Kadmos 3.5. Additional labels (Cyrillic, Arabic-Indian numbers) and additional special characters (^ ¡ ¢ ¥ § © ® ¿) for hand and machine print were also added.
Release Notes: This release adds a CPP interface with a demo program, vector image (in-memory and file) format support for Pen-Computing, tweaked memory management, improved classifiers, an improved Image I/O API, and a new sample image conversion program.
