Latest DAB version is 8.6.3 - 31 Mar 2021

See release notes or Download


Hi Dear,

Good to know the latest release of DAB. But very sorry to say that search option is still like searching any word from a book or an article.

The search like OUP Dictionaries or cambridge dictionaries should be implemented in this.
when any one enters letter a letter starting with a should appear in dropdown menu, instead of going to any other place for searching.

Hope my suggestion will be entertained.

Very sorry to say, about 3 years have been passed and no any update has been released regarding DAB. All the releases are are specifically for SAB and those are implemented here in DAB.

@Raja, that is not quite correct, though I admit the feature increase is much slower than for SAB. In Feb a new button was added to the Lexicon page Update from Other Source…
