I am proud to announce a new release of GridFlow. Before going on with the
usual information, let me tell you that I have screenshots for you! Since
some may want to see what kind of animations may be done using GridFlow, I
also have added a 10-frame animated GIF.



Here is a new release of GridFlow (a multi-dimensional dataflow processing
library for Ruby, jMax and PureData, specialized in pictures and video)


If you have any questions and/or want to talk, there is the #dataflow
chatroom on IRC.FreeNode.Net, where all MAX-like software is on-topic.

If you have any trouble installing GridFlow, please send me an email about
it or see me on IRC.
