I am pleased to announce the first public release of Graphos. After 10
years from the last release of GDraw... back from the ashes!
What is it?
Graphos is a vector drawing application centered around bezier paths.
Graphos roots are directly set in GDraw, written by Enrico Sersale and
released in 2000. Version 0.1 of Graphos is a direct descendant of
GDraw: the interface is almost unchanged, but the application has been
refactored, reorganized, debugged, rewritten and updated. The file
format was improved a little, Graphos is able to read GDraw files but
not the other way around.
The main changes were the transition from post-script to NSBezierPath
drawing, total rearrangement of the objects into Drawable Objects and
their Editors organized hierarchically and the porting to Macintosh (and
it works also on Windows). The text tool was debugged quite a bit too.
Finally, after the rearrangement was complete, it was possible to create
the Circle tool of which there was no working version in the GDraw
tarball I was able to get.
The Undo function was redone from scratch and Graphos 0.1 supports one
level of undo for creating and editing of objects.
Where to get it:
Graphos is a user application of GAP, the GNUstep Application Project.
Its page is here:
A lot is still missing, but this release had to get out. The next
enhancements will start departing from GDraw, part of the userinterface
will be redone and the missing tools need to be implemented.
