RAVL will be changing to use git as its main repository. Currently the version stored in git is currently modified and lacks all of the history stored in svn. To allow us to use git svn to create an updated version the current repository containing ravl2 code has been renamed to git://ravl.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ravl/ravl2 and a new empty repository has been created as the default one for the project.
We think it's time for an official release. RAVL is being used for commercial products, under Linux and Windows platforms.
The documentation for the nightly builds of RAVL is now publicly available. The address below leads to the documentation for the latest version of RAVL that has passed the automatic regression tests.
Version 0.7 of RAVL will support Dec OSF on alpha platforms,
the changes are in CVS if you want to give it a try.
Version 0.4 of RAVL is out.
This release includes much new functionality, and many bug fixes. Several people are now using RAVL in their projects, their feedback has made this release much more stable and usable.
There's now a utility to make Mircosoft's Visual C++ understand .cc .hh files which is essental for compiling RAVL.

Version 0.3's out with the usual assortment of fixes plus much better support for windows users. You'll still need the latest service pack and a hack to the registry to get it to work, http://support.Microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q181/5/06.ASP
. There is utility available to help with this, it can be found at http://www.vapourtech.com/software .
A tar.gz file of version 0.2 has been released. This version
also includes a QMake version of ccmath to make it easier
to install and try out.
Wrapper classes for the GTK user interface library have been added allowing the creation of basic GUI's. Widgets for
displaying images and graphs will be coming soon. There
are also plans for releasing some 3D widgets on the horizon.
A tar of the source code has been released for those
who don't want to mess with CVS.
I've created a mailing list to which all cvs commits are
posted. This should help people keep track of what changes
