Gournal iconGournal 0.5.1

Gournal is a notepad application for Tablet PCs.
Gournal is a note-taking application written for usage on Tablet-PCs (such as the Toshiba M200). It's designed for usage with a stylus, not a mouse or keyboard.

It does not have handwriting recognition but can be used in co-ordination with xstroke to accept text. Gournal is written in perl using gtk2-perl so you will need gtk2-perl along with the gladexml and gnomecanvas modules of gtk2-perl.

The pages are saved as gzipped SVG files (not totally standard yet but working on it). This is my first attempt and I have never used any M$ tablet applications (deleted Win before first boot) so I don't have any idea what features are good/needed.

Gournal looks/works just like a physical notebook with multiple pages. To save memory/speed load time it only loads pages when they are viewed so the app will not run much slower if you have 1 or 100 pages. Each page is named according to when it was created. The pages are saved as gzipped SVG files. Gournal has the following tools:

< Multiple sections >
Fine/Normal/Medium/Think Pens
Typed Text
Infinite undo/redo
Delete entire strokes
Networkable pages
< Insert Images >
< Load a file as the background >

What's New in This Release:

Support for printing the pages and files changed from .svg.gz to .svgz for compatiability with standards
