PrettyTime 3.2.1.Final Released – Now with Czech language support

We are proud to announce the 3.2.1.Final version of PrettyTime. This release includes several bug-fixes, an improved NLP (time parsing) module, and a new method for more convenient configuration of time units:
public void exampleUnitConfiguration() {
    JustNow unit = t.getUnit(JustNow.class);
    unit.setMaxQuantity(1);
    // This means that "just now" will only be used to represent one millisecond difference between the target time and reference time. (the default is 5 minutes.)
}

Improvements in the NLP module (based on Natty.) include more resilient parsing of date offsets such as “the day before yesterday,” which previously resulted in a date that actually represented “yesterday.”

Get PrettyTime 3.2.1.Final and PrettyTime NLP 3.2.1.Final.
