We've just rolled out another tweak to our algorithm, namely the part of the algorithm that takes you from Step 1 to Step 2 of the spinning process inside Spin Rewriter.

There used to be some edge cases where our algorithm would incorrectly place a period (.) at the end of paragraphs if the paragraph in question ended with either a single quote or a double quote, preceeded by another period.

Here's what I mean:
This right here is a "test." (end of paragraph)

...would sometimes turn into...
This right here is a "test.". (end of paragraph)

...after the Step 1 processing, and you would find that additional period once taken to Step 2.

Mildly annoying, for sure. 😃 Well, not anymore — we just fixed that, and rolled out the update to our live servers! 😃
