Version 5.8.0 of link-grammar has been released.

Notable changes include: inclusion of javascript node.js bindings; the obsoleting of python2, improved English dictionaries, and most interestingly, an experimental interface for dialects. With this interface, one can provide alternative weightings that emphasize the type of speech that might be common in limited geographical areas, and would not be considered to be commonplace. For example, one can provide weightings for Irish-American, urban English, and newspaper-headline English which might otherwise interfere with ordinary parsing of mainstream English.

The complete list of changes is:

 * Java bindings: Remove the obsolete senses API.
 * swig-4.0 compatibility bug fix.
 * English dict: Fixes to support questions ending in WH-words.
 * Copy (merge) Richard van der Dys `node.js` bindings.
 * English dict: Provide head and tail markers for all conjunctions.
 * Remove the Python 2 bindings.
 * Add dialect support to the library.
 * English dict: support for archaic/poetic abbreviations
 * English dict: introduce OH link for vocatives/invocations.
 * English dict: improved parsing of imperatives.
 * Add !!word/ link-parser command for displaying extended word dict info.

The Link Grammar Parser is a syntactic parser of English (and other languages as well), based on Link Grammar, an original theory of English syntax. Given a sentence, the system assigns to it a syntactic structure, which consists of a set of labeled links connecting pairs of words.
