Developer Builds (for testing)

In order to somewhat organize all the links to the latest development builds, let's create this thread and post the development builds here.

So, here's the structure of builds we currently have:

1. Developer builds. Frequent, might not be complete and contain only changed files (like, only goldendict.exe). Usually should be applied ON TOP of Early Access builds.
2. Early Access builds, for wider audience. Complete standalone archives. EA for Windows. EA for Linux. EA for Mac OS X.
3. Official releases. Posted on the main GoldenDict page.

And here are my recommendation on which build to use:

1. Developer builds are for those who would like to live on the edge, to try the very latest cool features and bugfixes and verify bugs.
2. Early Access builds are pretty suitable for general consumption. If you are not sure, use these builds.
3. Official releases are the safest but are quite outdated and miss all the latest features. (Hopefully, we'll make a new release soon though) :)

Changelog:
    * Select an entire text of the current article (Ctrl+Shift+A)
    * Fixed #164: Add an option to copy the entire page (Ctrl+A)

As usual, just unpack the archive on top of the latest Early Access build and you're good to go.

since GD x.500.xxx it keeps reindexing some of my dics, or all of them i´m not sure yet... until version 497 I haven´t seen this behaviour, but it could be me messing with the dics paths though

Yes, due to this fix: https://github.com/goldendict/goldendic ... 60d131fe03
Everytime a change is made to the parser of a dictionary format developers increase the parser version so GoldenDict is forced to reindex the dictionaries to take advantage of the fix or new feature.

speaking of word zoom level fixes, I should tell you that I have an issue with GD, though it´s not related to any particular version... the control plus + shortcut, which works fine for me on firefox and chrome, won´t function in GD if I don´t press 'shift' together.

in fact, my '+' key is situated above '=' on my keyboard, so that explains why I must use 'shift' together.

I believe chrome and firefox have set 'control + '=' to behave as 'control' + '+'

control + 0 to reset the view works fine, btw

Good idea, fixed!
