After (too) many years, finally a new release of Graphos <http://gap.nongnu.org/graphos/index.html>, GNUstep's vector editor grown out of old GDraw.

This release has two new important features:

* Splines support now cusps, that is left and right asymmetrical tangents to a control point. * A new image item object exists. This allows you to paste a preferably small image and move it around like it were a box, resizing it at will. This is quite useful to be able to manually overlay lines and trace images.

Since the image is directly encoded in the file and not saved as a separate image it is not very efficient and using large images is not advisable. In the future a new bundle file format needs to be implemented.

Many bug fixes and improvements in these past years, some major:

* Text improvements (editor display, reading/&amp;saving, Mac support
* Circles/Ovals save/read fix
* Properties inspector fixes
* Portability fixes

To support cusps, the file format changed, reading of old formats is still supported.

Graphos works on GNUstep and on Mac from version 10.2 onward! PPC and x86/amd64 binaries for Mac will be provided soon.
