We are releasing a bug-fixing version (v0.9.1) of gnfinder, a written in Go project that provides ability to search for scientific names in plain UTF-8 encoded texts. It now has a better version and build timestamp report, its black list dictionary expanded by 5 more words, and a bug fixed that prevents client programs to break if name-verification returned an error instead of result. We also started experimenting with making gnfinder available for other languages through a C-shared library.

More can be found in gnfinder’s CHANGELOG file.

The gnfinder code is used to create scientific name indices in Biodiversity Heritage Library, HathiTrust Digital Library, and serves as an engine for GNRD
