Gutenbook-0.1 -- the original?

Tagged:  

as seen at freshmeat: "Gutenbook is a personal multi-stage project to design, prototype, and develop a GTK+-based desktop application for reading Project Gutenberg Etexts. Currently, development consists of advanced prototyping in Perl/GTK+." According to the author, Lee, this is the original codebase from which the other Gutenbook project started, but this one is purely focused on perl/gtk+ instead of multiple (incompatible) codebases.

Gutenbook-0.1.6

Tagged:  

from gutenbook.org: "Added GNU GPL copyleft statements to all files. Fixed a couple minor bugs (example: opening a file and not actually selecting a file no longer instantiates an empty Etext object). Implemented a GtkNotebook for the library window such that each tab represents an alphabetical range of sorted Etext titles. Added a label to the library to indicate number of titles in range and total titles in index. Selecting/downloading an Etext now leaves that selected row visible in the GtkCList."

Tagged:  

Great to see that there's going to be a tutorial on "How to build a digital library using open-source software" at the upcoming ACM Hypertext '00 conference. Reading through the speaker's bio I found Greenstone, nzdl.org's collection backend. Looks like several implementations are running already, too. It would be great to post a conference report from a willing attendee... (hint hint :)
