Hi all,

we'd like to announce our "DicThesaurusRex" project:

This dictionary and thesaurus extension allows Smalltalk developers to benefit from spelling 
correction and synonym search within source code. It optionally extends code editors with a 
spelling correction that underlines unknown terms and typos. These annotations can either 
be corrected with suitable suggestions or always ignored in case of well-known abbreviations. 
Moreover, the thesaurus integration provides helpful advice during searching and programming. 
For example, the source code search has been extended to look also for similar terms and 
synonyms. As a result, the search presents developers not only exact but also semantic matches.

For more information, please visit the following project page:

DicThesaurusRex has been developed as part of our software engineering I course at the 
Hasso-Plattner-Institute, University of Potsdam (summer term 2013).

We'd like to thank the following students: 
	* Daniel Neuschäfer-Rube
	* Suhanyaa Nitkunanantharajah
	* Jaqueline Pollak
	* Jakob Reschke

Best regards,

Michael Perscheid
