Several people have asked me if the dict.cc Dictionary.App Plugin will update itself and how often new releases will be published.
Answering the ﬁrst question is easy: The plugin does not and probably will not contain an automatic update mechanism.
In contrast to applications, that can actively look out for updates, this plugin is basically a bunch of static HTML ﬁles without any own intelligence. That’s the downside of ﬁtting perfectly into many OS X services (Have you tried
Ctrl+Command+"D" on a selected word yet?) .
However, I’ve set up a newsletter that you can subscribe* to. I will sporadically update the plugin and post a quick note to all subscribers.
*I hate Spam as much as you do. Therefore I will not distribute your email addresses and I will not spam you. I promise.
