I skimmed the PDF at your link, and his decoding of Voynich makes more sense than any other analysis I have seen.  I'd say he's got it.  Maybe we can put this mystery to rest now.  (But, no, it's not strictly cryptographic in nature...)

Hello Grant, Mark, Everyone,

Many thanks for your note.

Indeed  - that's the idea of a peer-reviewed and verified paper - in fact, I 'got it' two years ago, in May 2017. I did say it wasn't cryptographic right from the start - just a normal alphabet and language (like this email).

I hope many scholars can now benefit from translating the manuscript now that the solution has been made official.
