<http://www.tanach.us/WLCReleaseNotes.html>,  for a detailed description 
of Version 4.16. The site has build number 23.0 and is dated 6 June 2012.

Version 4.16 was received 30 Apr 2012 and contains 1 change in 
consonants, 52 changes in vowels, 103 changes in accents, and 15 changes 
in morphological divisions.

The transcription notes of the WLC have been changed. Four types of note
