I am pleased to announce the release of GNU Ocrad 0.21.

Ocrad is the GNU OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program and library.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/ocrad/ocrad.html

The sources can be downloaded from http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/ocrad/ http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/ocrad/ or from your favorite GNU mirror.

This version is also available in lzip format. If your distro doesn't yet distribute the lzip program, you can download it from http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip.html

If you are packaging ocrad for a distribution, please, try to use the lzipped source tarball, as this can improve the support for the lzip format in packaging systems[1][2]. Thanks.
