Gbview is being rewritten in Java..
January 2013

Quite a decision, after being dormant for almost 4 years...

Originally started as a C project... but it has become clear that is needs a redesign and a rewrite. Java seems appropriate given the support for OpenGL with JOGL and making the software easily portable between Windows, Linux, etc.

Let's see how long this will take me!
