I think that as far as Linux is concerned the Dictionary has, in the 8.0 
DP releases
gone from bad to worse, so my report will probably, largely consist of a 
series of
pictures + descriptions of functionality (or lack thereof) of releases 
DP 11 to 14.

Whether that will actually be of any value at all I'm just not sure.

As my yardstick I shall use the LC 7.1 Dictionary, which is possibly a 
bit silly as I know
that the LC 8.0 Dictionary is meant to be both different and better than 
the 7.0 one.

However, as the LC 7.1 Dictionary does work, I cannot really think of 
another useful
point of comparison.

I will, also, try to test out 8.0 DP 14 on a Windows machine, even if 
only as a way of gauging
what is "not there" with the Linux version.
