Improve your French and Italian languages' skills with Verbiste, versatile verb conjugation utility.

verbisteVerbiste is a French conjugation system. It contains a C++ library, two programs that can be run from the command line or from another program, and a GNOME application. This application shows a text field in the GNOME Panel where the user can enter a conjugated verb and obtain its complete conjugation.

The knowledge base is represented in XML and contains over 7000 French verbs. It also contains about 190 Italian verbs. The dialog allows selecting the language in which the verb is to be searched.

The current version is 0.1.35 (2012-11-18): A memory leak has been fixed and the manual pages are now encoded in UTF-8. The "-gnome" RPM provided here contains the GNOME application, but not the applet, which is obsolete. Since version 0.1.34, the user can add verbs to Verbiste by creating an XML file in their home directory. See the README or LISEZMOI file for details.
