New Screen Ruler for Gnome

Hi All,

This new app lets you measure things on the screen in pixels (inch and millimeter metrics coming soon).

This type of ruler is quite popular on OSX. It's useful for graphics artists, GUI designers, maybe others.

Features and screenshots:
http://linuxadvocate.org/projects/gruler/

Forum for discussion, questions, or whatever:
http://linuxadvocate.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=8

I know it's nothing spectacular, but it's my first Gnome project, and I hope it's useful for some people.

If people find it useful, I'd be interested in getting it included in the official gnome software set, but I'm not sure how to go about it.

Best Regards,
-Ian McIntosh
