Finally! I placed the files for version 0.2. It adds support for additional
unit types, such as angle, area and computer units. Hopefully this makes
the current version a tad more useful than 0.1. If I find enough time
the next version, in pure C, is going to build on top of

Version 0.2 of unit conversion calculator has been ready for some time.
I need to package it and publish it. I also decided that this is going
to be the last stand-alone version. The next one is going to be built
as an extension to calctool.

I have added three more unit types: angle, area and computer units. The
first one provides conversion between degrees, radians and grads and
related measures. The area unit type deals with acre, hectare and
measures derived from squaring metric and British/US measures. Finally,
the computer units are traditional bit, bytes, kilobytes and such and
not so traditional crumbs, nybbles, deckles and so on. Version 0.2
will also have online help.

Version 0.1 has been released! It is truly an alpha version. I drew icons
using Gimp, even though I feel much more
comfortable coding that drawing. The Polish translation is missing
Polish characters, such as ą, ć, ę, etc., and so on. Every
time I typed them in, in gedit they would be saved in some
weird way. Oh, well, like I said, this is alpha software. Now onto
version 0.2 which should add support for more unit types and online

The initial documentation for the software is finally ready. It
probably needs to be slightly extended, but at least it is there.
I have also linked window titles, so their contents can be opened in a full size
... well, window.
Now, I wonder how can I prevent the for-profit types from using
my layout ... ideas, anybody?

While the code is still being worked on I added the ability
to move windows around. Just click on the title bar of a
window and drag it to a new location.

The code is almost ready. Version 0.1 has limited number of
unit types. At the moment it only supports temperature, mass,
distance, time and volume. Total of 63 units. It is more of a
