Release Notes: This release comprises all the changes to ivtools necessary to support a new package on top of it, ipl 1.0.1. ipl stands for Invocation Programming Language, and it's a development environment and testbed for the concurrent programming language described in Karl Fant's book "Computer Science Reconsidered: The Invocation Model of Process Expression" (Wiley-Interscience, 2007).

Release Notes: This is the first phase of evolving ivtools' drawserv into a unique drawing chat program. Implemented so far: a connection mechanism and mutually exclusive graphics selection. Next phase: full graphic state and editing command transmission, and extension of the selection mechanism for locking pseudo graphics. These features require building with ACE support.

  •  17 Oct 2001 16:12

Release Notes: This is the last release before 1.0, so the only changes will be to resolve build problems. It adds APL-like auto-vectorization of operators to the embedded command interpreter, and finalizes the semantics for 1.0.

Release Notes: This release contains support for PNG and gcc-3.0/libstdc++-v3.

Release Notes: It is now possible to save graphics or rasters imported from Unix filter commands by writing only the command line to the ivtools document file. Subsequent opens rerun the commands, which regenerates the graphics or rasters. This allows you to assemble arbitrary output from Unix commands into a layered graphic, single or multi-frame. Building from source has been tested on RedHat (6.1), Debian (unstable), and FreeBSD (3.1).
