2. History

I wrote gjiten because I needed a free software dictionary for my Japanese studies and wasn't satisfied with xjdic. Learning all xjdic's keys and running it in the ugly kterm isn't my taste. The other reason is that I've been using so much software written by the Open Source Software community without any contributions, so I thought it was time to write something ;) Hopefully someone finds this little program useful. Older relesases (pre 2.0) used some code from xjdic written by Jim Breen, but this has been removed.
