Labyrinth 0.4

(Posting my message to gnome-announce here, so people can rejoice)

After a long wait, the next version of labyrinth is now available.

Labyrinth is a mind-mapping tool for the GNOME desktop (and beyond!).
This version can be found at
ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/labyrinth/
(once the mirrors catch up)

The release consists currently of the source tarball. I'll leave
packaging up to others. I will be working to make the Windows version
usable again soon. Sorry for the delay.

This release is due entirely to the two new maintainers: Martin Schaff
and Matthias Vogelgesang, who's awesome work has resulted in enormous
changes and many bug fixes.

As ever, if you want to get involved, visit the mailing list at:
http://groups.google.com/group/labyrinth-devel/

New Features:
* Scaling and scrollable canvas (infinite sized maps!)
* Add support for text attributes (bold, italics, underline and font
selection )
* Arrow navigation of thoughts
* Support foreground and background colouring of nodes
* Import and export "labyrinth files" for maps in the form of tarballs
* SVG export
* PDF export
* Save browser window state across instances (UNIX build only)
* Bundle of optimisation work
* Selection using bounding box
* Add crude Windows building support
* Searching in the browser window

Bugs Fixed:
* So many bugs fixed. Only important ones listed.
* Auto-save maps every 60s (issue #64)
* Create intermediate dirs for savedir (issue #50)
* Links don't disappear any more (issue #62)
* Exception fixed when saving an empty map
* Show a thicker border if there's extended info on a thought (issue
#33)
* Check pygtk version before importing it (issue #82)
* Fix incorrect movement undos on occasion (issue #80)

translations:
