About criawips

Criawips aims to become a full featured presentation that offers the perfect platform both for small presentations used to explain things to other people and for big presentations used for commercial presentations.

Thus it should become easy to use, provide a good integration with other applications to become a presentation platform that can compete with commercial applications like MS PowerPoint, OpenImpress and Apple's Keynote.

Criawips isbased upon the GNOME development platform [1] and some libraries from GNOME Office [2].

About this release

After almost 2 months a new version of criawips is released. This version includes several new translations (as I forgot to mention translators in the last announcements, I list them all in here).

  • There have been a some bugs fixed (including a really evil one that noone has found yet - long live code audits) and the code cleaned up a lot.
  • Slides are now rendered with a 4:3 ratio (to become changable later), making the slides more resolution independent.
  • The main window has been redesigned for the upcoming editing support.

This release is supposed to be the 3rd last one before 0.1.0, which is supposed to provide creating and editing of slides. If you want this version to be supported in your language, then please start translating criawips.
