The new version now supports numbers in domain names, if the numbers do not split words. (e.g. =>, but not Numbers in domain names do not count as words (e.g. email4you = 2 words). If you use the dictionary filters and you don't want numbers, use the "no Numbers" filter in addition. The support for hyphens splitting words was removed (e.g. would not find "Less" anymore). Combining words with a hyphen still works (e.g. => The Finnish dictionary I was using wasn't very good, so now I'm using a new Finnish dictionary supplied by a Finnish speaking user. I hope this one is better.

If multiple word matches are found in the domain name, shows all of them separated by a | (Example: => | Also the tool now uses V2 of my wordmatch algorithm, that supports numbers in domain names (Example: => However numbers can not split words! works, but would not work, because the "2" splits the word "email". I also removed the possibility of hyphens splitting words. Before wold find the word "less". Now this is not supported anymore.
