A brand new Glossary Viewer

Importing foreign files is now done in the Glossary Viewer. No more importer.

Compiling glossaries is now done in the Glossary Viewer too, via Tools->Enrich Glossary From Documents. We now use a third party open source java jar from Apache called Tika, to extract the text from documents. It is quite powerful and is able to handle quite a wide range of documents.
