Ideas for next xcowsay version

These are some of things I’m thinking of adding for xcowsay 1.1: Think mode: draw a thought bubble like cowthink in the original cowsay. Dream mode: display images in the bubble. Draw the bubble with Cairo and anti-aliasing. Translations. A few bug fixes ;-). Thanks to everyone who downloaded xcowsay 1.0!!!!! 😀

Beta version of xcowsay panel applet

I’ve written a GNOME panel applet based on the xcowsay source code. It doesn’t do much at the moment – click it to run xcowfortune. If you want to try it out, get the source code here. You’ll need to configure it with –prefix=/usr or set BONOBO_ACTIVATION_PATH for GNOME to find it.
