release notes:

  Finally, "igm" etymology revealed!


README excerpt:

  This is a collection of small programs released
  under GNU GPL v3 that use Guile-SDL, available at:

  NB: These require Guile-SDL 0.5.0 or later.

NEWS excerpt (Guile-SDL Demos 5.1, 2013-10-14):

  - changes to demo "igm"

    - more responsive to ESC

      Previously, if you typed ESC (to quit), igm would not detect
      the keypress until the end of the current line's animation
      sequence.  Now the detection (and quitting) is fine-grained.

    - sliding background

      The area around the text line is now a continuously scrolling
      background.  This uses the "focus fx" PNG from Kobo Deluxe, but
      the animation is not as cool (yet).

    - interstitual up/down slide

      Betweeen lines, the background slides up or down to the new
      vertical position.

    - anagrams detected, shuffling animated

      If the current line is an anagram of the previous one, igm
      maintains the vertical position (no up/down slide), and animates
      the changes of horizontal position and case of the individual

      BTW, this explains the name of the demo "idle glued moss", which
      is an anagram of "Guile-SDL Demos".

    - three more lines in the internal set

      These are to exercise the anagram detection and animation code.
      See source.

  - new "unpicasso" option: ‘--loop’

    This makes the demo repeat indefinitely (good w/ ‘--random’).
