No idea who the 22 persons are who were willing to join my advisory board, but they advised me to finish the JChemPaint work Niels worked on this summer:
Like my current main hobby project (atom typing in the CDK), the JChemPaint project will be performed in my non-working hours mostly. A reasonable ETA is, therefore, end of this summer. Main discussion on will be done on the cdk-jchempaint mailing list. Also note that the JChemPaint project at SourceForge is deprecated, because the code is now included in the CDK project.
Over the next weeks, I will post more questions in the poll of this blog regarding the JChemPaint development. So, watch that space.
