New Chimp Rewriter version with some much needed fixes!

Over the last couple of months, some of the APIs which Chimp Rewriter needed to download content from the web have been discontinued. This means that the Anchor search, Image search and Article finder were slowly broken as each one shut down.

The major change in this new version is that all of these have been replaced with a new API so that they all work again.

Read on for the full list of changes. The update can be downloaded from http://chimprewriter.com/download.

This minor release has the following changes:

  • Anchor search, Image search and Article Finder now use Bing Search API. You will need to sign up for your own free API. Instructions are included in the application when you first use any of these features. Note that this brings with it many new features and a much larger range of articles.
  • Fixed several Unicode related issues with find/replace and spin functionality.
  • Several minor bug fixes.
  • Several minor feature additions including Spin & Preview pane size and location retention and new option in Settings/Save & Restore section to automatically replace HTML encoding with unicode equivalent.
