Announcing pyBKM

The last month I have been working on a new version of BKM. This version uses Python+wxPython and is supposed to run on Linux, Mac OS and Windows.

The current name for that new project is pyBKM, which is not exactly a very creative name. This name might or might not change in the future. But I need a working title to get started.

This means, there will be two projects with the name BKM from now on. The original and stable BKM written in Visual Basic will only run on Windows. This project may be referenced with the name vbBKM in the future. The new pyBKM written in Python will be cross-platform.

Release 0.1.2 has just been uploaded for your review and can be downloaded from the file releases section.The code will soon be put into the CVS repository with the module name pybkm.

This release 0.1.2 has the following features:
- Create, open and save XBEL databases
- Create, deleted, edit and move bookmarks, folders and separators
- Select multiple items in the tree view

This is clearly a alpha release and only suitable for a first review of what is to be expected. A roadmap has been established and is also available in the source download. This will give you an idea of what is to be expected.

And one other thing: This release has been tested with Linux, specifically Debian Linux sid.

Have fun
