wayV is...
1. Experiment with human computer interaction, especially gesture based computing.

2. Initially some software that does hand writing/gesture recognition. Shapes represent actions and are input via the mouse, i.e. draw a B and the "b" key press is sent to your Xterm, draw a C and xcalc starts, draw an N and Netscape starts, etc.

    wayV 0.3 is now released. The primary changes are Nick Rusnov's fixes and his patch that enables wayV to use more than just the first 5 pointer buttons for launching gesture capture.

    WARNING: Make sure you don't overwrite your existing wayv.conf when you install this version, back up your wayv.conf first!!! Yes, you can use your existing wayv.conf with version 0.3.

    Oh, wow, its just over 3 years since I officially released wayV 0.1 - I suppose averaging one release a year ain't too bad :)

    Debian packages of wayV are available from here, binaries are available for all the architectures that Debian supports. A big thanks to Nick for taking care of them. (14/Aug/2003)
