"I haven't updated this topic since September, but I'm very
excited about the progress so far. You may remember that one
develope, David Boddie, had done some work, with the result that I
could build .png files to visualise my patterns within Dolphin, and
that we were hoping that the other developer who had shown
interest, Purple-Bobby, would join us. That's exactly what
happened. David and Robert Forsyth, a.k.a.Purple-Bobby, attacked
the problem from different angles, which proved to be very
informative, as they could feed on each other's ideas.
"I originally bemoaned the fact that my patterns, in the format
.jef, could not be visualised without running Windows. Some of you
may have seen Linus Torvalds' blog
much the same subject. David gave me .png, and Robert gave me .eps
files to be used in the same way. Neither developer can spare huge
amounts of time for this project, but although much progress is
incremental, sudden leaps forward happen. It's this latest leap
forward that excites me."
