2.31 2020.09.26 - Fix for Latin1/UTF8 issue in documentation. 2.30 2020.06.20 - Cleanup for initial upload to GitHub. Version numbers for all sub-modules synced on 2.30 for consistency. Maintainer updated. Build.PL and Makefile.PL updates. Addition of 'use warnings' to all files. POD encoding error fix. 0.84 2010.04.29 - Documentation fixes to the En stemmer and removal of the accidentally included lib/Lingua/test.pl file Thanks goes to Aaron Naiman for bringing the documentation error to my attention and to Alexandr Ciornii and 'kmx' for the pointing out the problem with the test.pl file. 0.83 2007.06.23 - Disabled Italian locale tests due to changes in behavior of Lingua::Stem::It causing test breakage 0.82 2006.07.23 - Added 'stem_in_place' to base package. Tweaks to documentation and build tests. 0.81 2004.07.26 - Minor documentation tweak. 0.80 2004.07.25 - Added support for Linuga::Stem::Ru 0.70 2004.04.26 - Added support for Lingua::Stem::Fr and documentation fixes for Lingua::Stem::Gl 0.61 2003.09.28 - Documentation fixes. No functional changes. 0.60 2003.04.05 - Added more locales by wrappering various stemming implementations. Documented currently supported list of locales. 0.50 2000.09.14 - Fixed major implementation error. Starting with version 0.30 I forgot to include rulesets 2,3 and 4 for Porter's algorithm. The resulting stemming results were very poor. Thanks go to <firstname.lastname@example.org> for bringing the problem to my attention. Unfortunately, the fix inherently generates *different* stemming results than 0.30 and 0.40 did. If you need identically broken output - use locale 'en-broken'. 0.40 2000.08.25 - Added stem caching support as an option. This can provide a large speedup to the operation of the stemmer. Caching is default turned off to maximize compatibility with previous versions. 0.30 1999.06.24 - Replaced core of 'En' stemmers with code from Jim Richardson <email@example.com> Aliased 'en-us' and 'en-uk' to 'en' Fixed 'SYNOPSIS' to correct return value type for stemmed words (SYNOPIS error spotted by <Arved_37@chebucto.ns.ca>) 0.20 1999.06.15 - Changed to '.pm' module, moved into Lingua:: namespace, added OO interface, optionalized the export of routines into the caller's namespace, added named parameter initialization, stemming exceptions, autoloaded locale support and isolated case flattening to localized stemmers prevent i18n problems later. Input and output text are assumed to be in UTF8 encoding (no operational impact right now, but will be important when extending the module to non-English).
