  • Renamed a list of the existing tags in the AppServer.X.xml 
    • GrammarCheckProvider → GrammarCheck
    • SpellEngineOptions → SpellCheck

    • WProofreader SDK integration: add “enforceAI: true” option to the configuration script.
  • New version of WProofreader core v3.7.4760
    • Added option/parameter to turn ON/OFF enhanced text checking powered by AI.
    • Updated the default path for the WProofreader core for the cloud product version from “servicePath”: “spellcheck31/script/ssrv.cgi” to “servicePath”: “api”.
  • Released v2.2.0 of the WProofreader plugin for CKEditor 5.  Added support of the Restricted editing mode.
  • Improved AI-based English proofreading mechanism. Better handling cases with hyphenated compound words (e.g. mother-in-law), various typographical symbols and punctuation, contraction of verbs (e.g. “it’s”).    
  • [On-premise product version] Updated the demo samples inside the package  to match the online version. By default the path to access the demos as follows: http: localhost/wscservice/samples/
