Several bug fixes. Now it should be working on Linux, I tested it on Suse.
This release adds possibility to specify 'open' state of string. This option will draw small empty circle above the guitar neck.
New version of XSLT utility. Creates chord images for further usage anywhere.
-XSD with namespaces
-enhanced name/id manipulation - to allow linkage with XSong project
-startup scripts now written as ant build file
-> easier configuration and usage
-some more documentation
-online demo application (servlet) included
Try and give me feedback.
I've created online demo application at http://xchords.barad.cz. It creates direct SVG images from XML input. Test it, please. It's easy to use. It's 0.3 version preview.
Site was updated with newest info, more texts, samples edited, linkage to XSong project.
New improved version of XChords was released.
-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
-all known bugs from 0.1 fixed
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... read more
