WordCram 0.5.7 is out, and it’s about making things just a little easier. You can make a WordCram from multiple text sources, by piling them on top of each other. Before, WordCram would forget about your old text source, and … Continue reading
This release includes three bug fixes (#6, #7, and #8), and some small performance improvements, that should get us a tiny bit closer to faster wordcrams. Get the better bits, and happy hacking!
