Note on upgrading from previous versions

In this version the application ID was changed and the old application ID might still be lingering around on your disk. As a result you may have two desktop starters named “Parlatype”. In that case please delete /usr/share/applications/org.gnome.parlatype.desktop. You can also delete /usr/share/appdata/org.gnome.parlatype.appdata.xml. Your preferences were stored under the old application ID, with the new one you have the default preferences again. Sorry for the inconvenience!
