We are pleased to announce the release of DKPro WSD, version 1.2.0.

DKPro WSD is a modular, extensible Java framework for word sense disambiguation. It provides UIMA components which encapsulate corpus readers, linguistic annotators, lexical semantic resources, disambiguation algorithms, and evaluation and reporting tools.
