-core rewrite - different drawing styles could be used
-more output formats - JPEG/PNG/TIFF images included in HTML page, PDF document with SVG images
-more startup scripts for easier usage
-more documentation
-all known bugs from 0.1 fixed

XChords 0.2 is closer...

Sat, 20 Dec 2003 22:21:37 -0000

I will release new version of XChords in few days. (Xmas gift)

Interesting new features:
-PDF creation from your chords database (you can print it)
-core rewrite (separated to preprocessing phase and drawing phase)
-after preprocessing is created intermediate XChordsDraw XML file, which can be easily transformed to SVG output. You can write your own XSLT and put it in the chain.
-size of the guitar neck (and all other fixed things) is no longer fixed. Everything is calculated dynamically, so the output SVG is always good.
-bugs from 0.1 fixed
