Summary:Splashy 0.1.8 released
Project:splashy

Release Name: 0.1.8

Notes:
Splashy right now is able to:

* configure splashy via XML files
* themes can be very granular about how to display their images (XML again)
* images in millions of colors
* resolution as high as VESA supports 1280x1024 (and more if other
framebuffer drivers are used)
* supports gif animations
* detects errors and falls back to verbose mode (text printed on a
textbox overlayed on image)
* start very early at boot (from initramfs. experimental)
* text messages can be printed to the screen (for system messages)
* communications via a FIFO (named pipe) as well as signals (limited
to progressbar updates)
* multi-threaded
* very clean C code
* a very NICE init script that doesn't rely on rc/rcS or LSB functions
to do it's job
* and a really good community that constantly submit bug fixes/reports
and keep our IRC channel ready for answering newbies questions
* fade in/out effects
* XML schema for theme.xml files
* Custom fonts for Themes (text printed to screen)
