Posted on: 10/07/2006 01:16 PM

Labyrinth v0.2 "Get the Picture?" has been released

This is the second in the "Out of Nothing" series of releases, which will result (at some point) in a V1.0 release.

What is it?
-----------

Labyrinth is a mind-mapping tool for GNOME. It is written in python and uses cairo for its drawing.

Screenshots (and a little more info) is available at its homepage:

What's new?
-----------

New Features:
* Base thought class for future thought types to derive from
* Add new document to docs describing (current) file format
* Add i18n framework. No translations yet thought
* Add Image Thought for adding images from external files
* Add image mode for adding an image
* Add Drawing Thought for simple drawings
* Add drawing mode for drawing in drawing thoughts
* Both Image and Drawing Thoughts are resizable by dragging corners / edges
* New (crappy) Labyrinth icon
* Add menu entry (shows up in Applications-gt;Office)
* Set window icon to new Labyrinth icon in Browser and map windows
* All thought types now have slightly rounded corners
* When resizing thoughts, change the cursor to reflect this
* Links now originate at the centre of thoughts, making them look prettier

Fixes:
* Fix uninstalled mode
* Only allow 'Open' and 'Delete' to be used when a map is selected in Browser window
* Make removal of links work properly
* Various code cleanups (Thanks to Rogi Lemar)
* Make defs get generated properly (From Alacarte)
* Only redraw every 1/40th second when required to stop hammering X server
* Draw links behind thoughts for added solidity
