#112 Public domain icons to replace unfree ones

Eric L.


I had notified the developer list that some of the icons under Sun's copyright have a non-free license. As replacement, I suggest the attached ones, which are partially mine, and partially derived or taken from http://openclipart.org/ (public domain graphics).

As a result, I place all these icons in the public domain.

    Hi again,

    OK, I know more now, a simple command helped me:
    $ grep -ri -e 16.gif -e 24.gif .
    ./freemind/controller/printpreview/PreviewDialog.java: final JButton button = getButton("Back24.gif", new BrowseAction(preview, pageNumber, -1));
    ./freemind/controller/printpreview/PreviewDialog.java: toolbar.add(getButton("Forward24.gif", new BrowseAction(preview, pageNumber,1)));
    ./freemind/controller/printpreview/PreviewDialog.java: toolbar.add(getButton("ZoomIn24.gif", new ZoomAction(preview, DEFAULT_ZOOM_FACTOR_STEP)));
    ./freemind/controller/printpreview/PreviewDialog.java: toolbar.add(getButton("ZoomOut24.gif", new ZoomAction(preview, -DEFAULT_ZOOM_FACTOR_STEP)));
    ./freemind/modes/mindmapmode/actions/BoldAction.java: super(modeController, "bold", "images/Bold16.gif");
    ./freemind/modes/mindmapmode/actions/CloudAction.java: super(controller, "cloud", "images/Cloud24.gif");
    ./freemind/modes/mindmapmode/actions/CloudColorAction.java: super("cloud_color", "images/Colors24.gif", controller);
    ./freemind/modes/mindmapmode/actions/ColorArrowLinkAction.java: super("arrow_link_color", "images/Colors24.gif", controller);
    ./freemind/modes/mindmapmode/actions/ItalicAction.java: super(modeController, "italic", "images/Italic16.gif");
    ./freemind/modes/mindmapmode/actions/UnderlinedAction.java: super(modeController, "underlined", "images/Underline24.gif");
    Binary file ./plugins/svg/batik-swing.jar matches

    - the batik hit can be ignored
    - Cloud24 and Color24 are not from Sun and assumed to be free (?)
    - I'll provide soon an updated package with updated Back24.gif, Forward24.gif, ZoomIn24.gif, ZoomOut24.gif, Bold16.gif, Italic16.gif and Underline24.gif
    - other *16.gif or 24*.gif can be removed from CVS (to be finally tested).

    Hello Chris,

    I've uploaded a new set of icons specifically for FreeMind 0.9.0, I've also included Cloud24 and Colors24 from the original sources so that you can do the following without loosing anything:
    $ cd freemind/images
    $ rm *{24,16}.gif
    $ unzip -j .../icons090.zip
    (of course, it's a bit more complicated than that with CVS, but you get the idea...)

    Cheers, Eric
