WWWJDIC for Android v1.8.4 Released

A new version is now available in the Android Market, as well as the Amazon Appstore.

This update doesn't add new features, but includes a critical change: support for the new WWWJDIC Japan mirror. The current one will be closing tomorrow (6/30), so if you are in Japan, or using the Japanese mirror site, update now.

Another change in this release is improved display of kanji grade/type in the details view. Previous versions displayed the raw KANJIDIC grade number (1-10), the new one properly classifies the kanji, displaying 'Elementary 1-6' for kanji studied in Japanese elementary school, 'Secondary' for kanji studied in the chuu-gakko (junior high school), and 'Jinmenyou' for additional kanji used in Japanese names.

Other notable changes are listed below. Head over to the project's website for even more details.

The new version is now available in the Android Market and soon in the Amazon Appstore. If you don't have access to either of those, you can get it from the downloads section of the project's website.
This versions adds support for the new JLPT levels (N1-5), both in the kanji details view and in the kanji of the day widget. You can now limit the kanji displayed by the widget to one of the 5 test levels. Here's how the widget configuration screen looks now:

Another major improvement in this release is the handling of kanji search by English meaning. Not all relevant entries were returned before, and that has now been fixed. You should get the same results as from the original WWWJDIC.
Other notable changes in the previous two releases (1.8.1 and 1.8.2) are listed below. For more details refer to the full changelog.
