Gourmet Recipe Manager 0.7.1 Released

Gourmet 0.7.1 has been released. Gourmet is a recipe manager and shopping-list generator written for the GNOME environment, but usable on any *nix or Windows system. 0.7.1 brings two major improvements to packaging: there is now a Windows installer (thanks to Roland Duhaime!) and the RPM spec file fixed so dependencies should be properly worked out now (thanks to Jeff Schroeder for help with this!). Debian files are also now included in the source tarball for people who want to tweak them. The Unit Converter has usability improvements with help from Richard Ferguson (more UI improvements are in the works!). Non-GNOME printing is now improved -- if LPR doesn't exist, user is prompted for another print command (printing has been split into lprprinter, winprinter and gnomeprinter modules to encourage the development of windows printing and other options by interested parties. Finally, there are several bugfixes and new options to enable developers to more easily test out new glade files or other data files by specifying these directories from the commandline.

It allows you to collect, search, and organize your recipes, and to automatically generate shopping lists from your collection. It aims to make it easy to enter and organize your recipes with an intuitive interface. Changes: Version 0.7 offers a number of bugfixes and feature enhancements: gourmet now imports mastercook XML files as well as Mealmaster files. When multiplying recipes, Gourmet now changes units for readability (so that 1 TBS * 1/2 = 1 1/2 tsp.). The Recipe Card view features a new preferences dialog to remove elements of the UI (if, for example, you never rate your recipes). Finally, Gourmet now runs on Windows for the first time (though printing on Windows is not yet supported). The debian package now installs gourmet into /usr/share/gourmet instead of site-packages.

Gourmet Recipe Manager 0.5 Released!

Version 0.5 marks a number of major improvements in Gourmet, a
GTK-based recipe manager and shopping list generator. We now support

calling for recipes as ingredients. In addition, version 0.5 brings
considerable improvements in importing mealmaster(tm) files and in the
recipe webpage generator. Also, there are a number of UI improvements,
including a truly "spatial" interface (recipe cards remember where you
left them between sessions), and drag-n-drop support for rearranging
ingredients and for copying an ingredient lists from a web browser or
other app. Finally, we've gotten rid of GNOME dependencies, so it
should now be possible to run Gourmet on non-GNOME platforms including
Windows. Gourmet 0.5 also recognizes many more ingredients by default
than earlier versions!

Gourmet Recipe Manager

Gourmet Recipe Manager has made its first release! All the basic functionality is there, including editing recipes, generating shopping lists, importing Mealmaster files. The GUI also has some slick implementation already there, such as drag-and-drop organization of shopping lists into categories and quick sorting and searching of recipes.
At this stage, testers are needed to start trying this out. Python programmers would be welcome to help clean up and expand the codebase, and we could also use feedback from anyone interested in UI--the project is aiming eventually to meet the Gnome Human Interface Guidelines.
