I’ve just released OCRFeeder 0.7.3.
This first version of 2011 doesn’t introduce as many features as the previous ones but fixes a few issues and introduces user documentation (F1 help).
I’ve also made a change that is against my principles: the use of autotools. Having things like distutils, which I was using in OCRFeeder, I always preferred to avoid using autotools in my Python projects but that also meant I’d have to be extra careful where it would install things to be consistent with other GNOME apps. This release’s main feature is the introduction of user documentation, so, it seemed like the right time to replace distutils with autotools. But let’s see how long it lasts, things like BuildDj seem very interesting and the way to go once it is developed…
Thanks to the people who have filed bugs and sent me comments about OCRFeeder.
