New software

allanm1's picture

I have new software, called CR8tracer (freeware) available at my website: http://www.cr8software.net

It is a GUI for Potrace, and allows export of .gfs files for creating True Type fonts from scanned images of handwriting etc.

Since it's based on potrace, you will of course be releasing the source under the terms of the GPL license, correct?

Raph,

How about downloading it and reading the license - I believe that it is covered under GNU GPL.

Cheers.

allanm1, like ralph I don't see a link to the source code on your site. Is it available? I'm no lawyer, but as I understand it, any derivative works under GPL need to be released under the same license. This is the big difference between GPL and BSD licenses.

Think you guys need to read the GNU license - source code doesnt need to be shipped with the software, but just a written offer to supply it.
If anyone makes a specific request for source, they are welcome to it, it is just a small front end to Potrace, though the .gfs section may be of interest to some.

How about some feedback on the program etc, may be more constructive.

Cheers.

No mac version? I think most people on here are probably using OSX.

Sorry, I'm on a Mac too.

As for the source code, yes, I'd like a copy, and would be happy to host it on my domain, if scarce bandwidth is the reason you're only offering it in response to a written request.

Sorry guys, I wasn't expecting demand for the source code so quick (this is my first GNU project). Will post on the web site - just need to document and comment it out a bit better for public consumption.

Keep an eye on the site..

Cheers.

Source code is now available for download from my site.

Thanks for the interest.

Just wanted to chime in and say 'thanks for supporting OS!'

Will download this when I get a chance and play with it some.

(and all you Mac folks...c'mon...get Parallels installed already! ;o)

I just tried it out and it works great. This is probably the easiest way for Windows users to use Potrace. Thanks for posting it.
