Exams - Managing the gesture DB

As promised, for the pleasure of the 90% of the visitors and starting today, I will be writing only in English.

I am afraid to say that since the (college) exams period is about to start here in Spain, there won't be any big update until mid-July. This is a lot of time, yes, but I'm just being realistic here.

In the meantime, I plan to (slowly)work on the gesture recognition side of the project. The applet is now not enough for my needs, so I started writing a more complex application to manage the kana/kanji gesture database. I am using Java/Swing, and it should let me perform the following tasks:

Note: The binary DB represents the final, static database holding gesture information for all recognized kana and kanji in the game.

Oh and finally, Kana DS did not win any award at the Concurso de Software Libre(Open Source Contest for spanish universities) that finished last weekend. I have been given an 'special mention' though, which basically means a slap on the back.

See you on the next post!
