OOChemistry 0.1 released: call for participation

Konstantin released OOChemistry 0.1 and sent this email to the cdk-jchempaint mailing list (I added a few links and an extra newline):
    Hello, colleagues!

    I'd like to announce first alpha version of OOChemistry. It is an extension for which provides cross-platform OLE-like integration of OOo with JChemPaint chemical diagram editor. With OOChemistry you can draw structure, embed into document (text or presentation) and than double click and edit whenever you want on any platform having and Java Runtime (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, other Unix flavours). Remember that it's only alpha and is not recommended for production use (e.g., compatibility with futher versions is not guaranteed).

    Known bugs:, (please, submit if you found other issues!)
    More about project, contact info, how to contribute:

    OOChemistry needs your help! Experience in Java, in development of projects dealing with JChemPaint/CDK, or in development of extensions will be highly appreciated. Of course, you can help not only in coding, but also in translation of interface and writing docs.


Your feedback as well as coding contributions are very much appreciated! I am excited about seeing chemical editing facilities in, and while the integration is not as good as Chem4Word, it is something I can run on my Linux system.
