Version 3.0 Announcement

It's been 9 months since the last release. Finally, I've got rotation (and a bunch of other stuff) to work. This release is a beta release at best. Please send bug reports to as soon as possible so I can release patches. Although version 3.0 is backward-compatible, the file format is not forward-compatible (you won't be able to read files generated by this version with older versions of tgif).

I've just put tgif-3.0 source in the following places for anonymous ftp (binaries are not available yet at the time of this release, please check for availability):
Tgif is an Xlib-based 2-D drawing tool. It's also a hyper-graphics (or hyper-structured-graphics) browser on the World-Wide-Web. Its hyper-text home page is at and its hyper-graphics home page is at . (Please note that the Content-type of a tgif file sent by the httpd at is applications/x-tgif.)

Tgif is free, but please read the Copyright file in the distribution (or select Copyright from the Help Menu in tgif) for restrictions.
