--- We apologize if you have received multiple copies of this announcement. --- Dear list members, We are pleased to announce the release of FreeLing version 2.1, which improves previous versions, including new languages, new functionalities, and enhanced processing for those already included. FreeLing is an open-source C++ library providing language analysis services (such as morfological analysis, date recognition, PoS tagging, shallow parsing, etc.). The software is released under GPL. FreeLing is designed to be used as an external library from any application requiring this kind of services. Nevertheless, a simple main program is also provided as a basic interface to the library, which enables the user to analyze text files from the command line.
