Next things to be added, althoug I'll take some rest now, will be the capability to get a pdf version of any food item or recipe nutritional information and a couple more things I have on mind.

In the versión 1.0 acknowledgements I completelly forgot to cite, an free online dictionary I have always open when I'm writing in english. It can translate from english to 16 languages, but I use it mainly for es-en translation. Very useful its forum, where you will find developed explanations for a lot of words and sentences, you can even ask for counsel if you don't find some translation or you have any doubt.

Version 0.9 is under final development and test, the final release is planned to happen on October 2009.
