The processed data has been published by the

The major new features include:
- Standardized use of parentheses “( )” in word forms.
- Optimizated data structure (e.g., <sense/> element now contains a unique ID, facilitating the ongoing work on linking CCL to the databases of semantic relations such as Coptic WordNet).
- Correction of orthographic, grammatical and semantic information of the existing entries and addition of new entries.
- Linking to Perseus Greek morphology tool via the Greek head words. DDGLC lemma IDs are now displayed in the entry view of Coptic Dictionary Online.
- Improved usability of the section of Greek loanwords due to exclusion or change of a number of senses.
- Link to attestation search for nouns filtered by entity-type (e.g., search for ⲟⲩⲟⲛ standing for a person, an animal, or an inanimate object) in Coptic Scriptorium.
- Phrase network visualization of most common word sequences containing nouns, verbs and prepositions.
