"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 http://torvalds-family.blogspot.com/2010/01/embroidery-gaah.html on 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."
