Release Notes: VietPad's package name was renamed to work around a bug with the JRE 1.4.2 interpreter which sometimes fails to properly recognize the "net.sourceforge.vietpad" package name on certain systems. A printing bug that clipped small-font text at the right margin was fixed. Input engine performance was optimized. The ability to change case and join parapraphs (removing line breaks) was added. Shorthand was added. A preferences dialog was added. An Undo/Redo bug was fixed. Find/Replace operations were enhanced to accept newline (\n) and tab (\t) characters.
Release Notes: This version incorporates significant improvements, including improved input engine performance, a diacritical mark removal mechanism and more efficient key input processing, improved cross-platform look and feel, especially for Mac OS X, improved conversion performance, Vietnamese word sorting, and stripping diacritics capabilities.
