Ruby/DICT is an RFC 2229-compliant client-side library implementation of the DICT protocol, written in the Ruby programming language. It can be used to write clients that access dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases. rdict, a powerful CLI dictionary client built on Ruby/DICT, is included.

Release Notes: A bug where a text response could be mistaken for a numeric status response was fixed.
Release Notes: When a non-default matching strategy is used with rdict and no definitions are found, a message is now displayed. A warning that occurred when running with Ruby 1.8 was also fixed.
Release Notes: The rdict client now accepts multiple words as arguments on the commandline and performs dictionary lookups for each of them in turn.
