Ocrad 0.7

I am pleased to announce the release of Ocrad 0.7.

Ocrad is an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/ocrad/ocrad.html.

The sources can be dowloaded from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/ocrad/
or from your favorite GNU mirror.

The md5sum is:
1893a8b8c3b6848392160e47be2b1de6 ocrad-0.7.tar.bz2

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature
by appending “.sig” to the URL.

Changes in version 0.7:

  • Internal change to UCS (Universal Character Set) instead of ISO
  • Default charset is now ISO 8859-15 (latin9).
  • Ocrad now recognizes Turkish characters (ISO 8859-9).
  • Added new output format (UTF-8).
  • Added new options –charset and –format.
  • Added man page.

Be aware that frames, lines, pictures, etc, can (by the moment)
totally confuse ocrad.

Please report bugs to <bug-ocrad@gnu.org>.

Antonio Diaz, GNU Ocrad author and maintainer.
