Known bugs
  • Installation: in early versions, the installation needed Firefox to be stopped and launched again (instead of the automatic restart). This problem may persists with some configurations.
  • The suggestions box may be misplaced in some articles of the French Wiktionary.
  • Wisigoth may conflict with the Delicious extension (and possibly with some other extentions. Please, let us know).

Please do not forget to mention the address of a page the bug occured in when you describe the problem.

  • Short-term
    • addition of a combo-box to dispatch a candidate in the appropriate section when it is judged irrelevant as a synonym, but relfects another semantic relation.
    • addition of a "random page contribution" to propose a synonymy-deficient page: the Wiktionary's "random entry" feature often leads to languages other than the one of interest and to inflected forms.
  • Mid-term
    • new methods of candidates computation: for instance, by cross-lingual enrichment.
    • taking into account wordsenses when adding a synonym.
    • computing candidates for translations.
