Version 0.2.2 6.9 MB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*, Thunderbird 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Lots of changes:
*More entries in the dictionary
*Faster Search (needed because of bigger dictionary)
*You can choose "Show More Results" in the options dialog to yield more results (often redundant, OFF by default).
*Press when over a character to display character information about it.(very much thanks to Imron Alston for compiling the info from the huge file)
*Now works with Simplified AND Traditional characters, and will detect automatically, so no longer need to choose anything in the options dialog.
*Fixed newline character not being outputted upon export
*Made the accidental exporting when trying to copy and hitting a little better, but still not perfect.

Version 0.2.1 4.7 MB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*, Thunderbird 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

*fixed a problem where some definitions werent being displayed in the popup. MUCH BETTER results now!!!
*Now when you press the key when over a hanzi it will magnify it (useful for seeing all the radicals clearly)

Version 0.2.0 4.7 MB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*, Thunderbird 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

*No functionality change (will come in next update)
*Updated to work in Firefox 2.0

Version 0.1.3 4.7 MB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*, Thunderbird 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

*Fixed problem loading in Thunderbird

Version 0.1.2 4.7 MB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*, Thunderbird 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

*This no longer conflicts when installed with Japanese Perapera-kun
*Now uses the Adsotrans dictionary (which includes CEDICT) so the filesize on this update is notably larger but should have significantly more entries
*Tone marks are displayed and exported instead of the tone numbers
*Changed the toolbar icon to the green book icon so its easier to distinguish when using both this and the Japanese Perapera-kun

Version 0.1.1 2.8 MB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*, Thunderbird 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

*Fixed the problem where it looked for a dictionary file to be installed (necessary in Rikaichan but not here), this made the first version non-functional, so please download this version!

Version 0.1.00 2.8 MB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*, Thunderbird 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Here are known issues with this version:
* Due to the resource naming (by the Rikai-chan author I believe) it doesnt yet work when you install both of my plugins on the same Firefox profile. So for now make another profile if you want to do this for Japanese and Chinese (I will fix this problem very very soon).
* The Traditional characters might not export correctly due to not being in BIG5 encoding, but I havent checked that yet.

Here are things I will add in the next release:
* Change the tone numbers to tone marks, or add the option to choose which you want.
