Latest Release: LingPipe 3.9.3

Minor Release

The latest release of LingPipe is LingPipe 3.9.3. This release replaces LingPipe 3.9.2, with which it is fully backward compatible.

LingPipe 3.9.3 is scheduled to be the final 3.x release. LingPipe 4.0 is going to remove all currently deprecated classes and methods. As tempted as we were to enforce some kind of naming consistency, we decided to follow Java itself and maintain backward compatibility instead.

There was major refactoring for 3.9 and 3.9.1, which along with backward compatibility, leads to a rather clunky API with lots of duplicate functionality.
