This version requires Suomi-malaga 1.4 or later. Some features require Suomi-malaga 1.10 or later. After version 3.3.1 the following notable changes have been made:

Mozvoikko 2.0 (2011-10-10)

This version requires libvoikko 3.0 or later. It is compatible with Firefox versions 4.0 - 8.0 and Thunderbird 5.0 - 8.0.

Mozvoikko 2.0 is a complete rewrite of Mozvoikko in JavaScript. Binary version of libvoikko (shipped with the extension or installed as a part of the operating system) is still needed but Mozvoikko itself contains no C++ code and thus no longer needs to be compiled. It is expected that Mozvoikko 2.0 will require fewer compatibility updates for new Firefox versions than Mozvoikko 1.x did. Future compatibility cannot be guaranteed and thus it is still assumed that distributors of this component test new Firefox versions as they are released and change the range of compatible versions accordingly.

Libvoikko 3.3.1 (2011-09-26)

This version requires Suomi-malaga 1.4 or later. Some features require Suomi-malaga 1.10 or later.

This is a bug fix release that fixes a crash seen in recent versions of Firefox. The bug was introduced in libvoikko 3.1. No separate bug fix release will be made for libvoikko 3.1 or 3.2 but the patch will apply to these versions as well.

Mozvoikko 1.10.0 (2011-06-26)

This version requires libvoikko 2.3 or later. Older versions of libvoikko can also be used if the library is installed as a part of operating system. This version is compatible with Firefox versions 3.0 - 5.0. After version 1.0.1 changes have been made to make the extension compatible with Firefox versions 4 and 5.

Libvoikko 3.2.1 (2011-05-21)

This version requires Suomi-malaga 1.4 or later. Some features require Suomi-malaga 1.8 or later.

Version 3.2.1 is a bug fix release. It fixes handling of embedded null characters in input strings entered through Python or Java interfaces. The bug could be used to cause denial of service conditions and possibly other problems. Users of these interfaces are recommended to upgrade to this release. Applications that use the native C++ library directly (this includes all well known desktop applications) are not affected by this bug and no changes to the native library have been made in this release.
