Great news Christoph and thanks to all the developers for their efforts. Re
item 5 and the release of libfreehand 0. 1. 1. your info for installing
this is aimed at Linux users. This is a regular problem on this mailing
list - it is all aimed at Linux users ! Can this new package be installed
on Windows OS ? If so can info be put on the list regarding
uploading/installing this package on Windows. I use XP 32 bit.
