As of right now, the first release candidate of Simon 0.4.0 is available:
As can be expected, a lot of bugs have been fixed since the last beta.
However, that's not all that changed: This release candidate also comes with complete handbooks for all Simon applications. Next to documenting the plentiful new features, I also completely restructured the Simon handbook to hopefully provide a better starting point for new users.
Moreover, the windows installer has been vastly improved and now actually ships a fully fledged Simon version with Julius and SPHINX support. This means that you can use any Simon base model right from the start and even build your own speech model from scratch without installing any additional software.
This brings me neatly to the call for packagers: If you want to help package Simon, please get in touch with me.
