Panda 0.5.4 released

    (Evan has taken over maintaining Panda, although I will be dropping in from time to time to add code still)

    Subject: [panda-development] Panda-0.5.4 Released
    Date: Monday 12 April 2004 11:28 pm
    From: Evan Nemerson 
    To: panda-development@lists.sourceforge.net, panda-users@lists.sourceforge.net
    
    Hi everyone,
    
    I've just released Panda-0.5.4 via Savannah and SourceForge. I will make an
    announcement via Freshmeat as soon as the files are available via stillhq.com
    
    The release can currently be downloaded from:
    	https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/panda
    	http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/panda
    
    As you may already be aware, the most important change in 0.5.4 is that the
    library is now available under the terms of either the GPL or LGPL (your
    choice). In order to accomplish this, the TDB code was removed, and either
    Enlightenment DB or Berkeley DB (version 4) must be linked to in its place.
    
    Other changes include the addition of link annotations (internal and
    external), pkg-config support, and an RPM. The main point of this release,
    however, was the licensing issue.
    
    The time has begun to begin thinking about the next release of Panda, and
    though I do not have a time frame, I do have a few features I'd like to
    implement:
    
    *	Improved font handling, using FreeType. I would like to be able to embed
     and use arbitrary fonts, supporting line and page wrapping of text boxes.
     *	Support XMP metadata, noteably Creative Commons licensing data.
    *	Bindings for different languages, such as PHP, Python, etc.
    *	Comprehensive documentation, using DocBook XML
    *	Stronger Windows support
    
    If you have any other ideas you would like to see integrated within the
    library, please send a message to panda-development@lists.sourceforge.net
    


    The files for this release can be found at:

PandaScript 0.5 Released

    PandaScript 0.5 has been released. PandaScript 0.4 was skipped to keep the version numbers inline with Panda. The cool bit about this release is that PandaScript is now automatically generated by Objectify, which means it should always be up to date with the latest Panda version. You can download the latest source from here and a signature from here.
