Newton is a personal, serverless, desktop wiki applet for the GNOME desktop environment. It requires no setup to use aside from initial installation. It is used by entering notes and information in a simple wiki markup, and the content is rendered in rich HTML using an embedded mozilla widget. Wiki pages are shown in a tree for quick access.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release since the last one was a bust in many cases. There are some formatting fixes, some minor enhancements, and (hopefully) a working .deb file.
Release Notes: Local and remote images can now be embedded in various positions in the document using various scaling options. This option was added to the Edit Toolbar. Links can now be made to any file or document on your local filesystem. A context menu was added to the tree list of wiki pages. Renaming a wiki page now automatically updates other pages that link to it. Built-in spell checking during edit was implemented, but can be disabled in the preferences. A Debian/Ubuntu .deb package file is now available.
Release Notes: Search functionality is implemented. You can find specific words anywhere, in any page. An edit toolbar has been added to the editing screen for simpler creation of pages. The locale-friendly date and time can be inserted at the cursor with a single mouse click. Any page can be exported to an HTML file (including style) for viewing or printing with your Web browser.
