Open Clip Art Library Release 0.11 Announcement

March 8, 2005 UTC - Release 0.11 of the Open Clip Art Library
(www.openclipart.org) is now available for download on-line as an
individual package consisting of 2896 images submitted by over 200
artists from around the world. Some of the new clip art received this
month includes more images of food, computer-related items and even a
little boombox. In addition to the collected 0.11 package, each clip art
file can now be found by keywords using developer Jonadab's new Keyword
Search Tool. 

The Open Clip Art Library is growing rapidly because of increasing
submissions from artists. Currently, the top five artists in terms of
the amount of clip art submitted are: Danny Allen (951 images), Nicu
Buculei (456), Jose Hevia (453), Andy Fitzsimon (250), and Alan Horkan
(119). These Artist's and others contributions are the life blood of the
Library. While the critical unit of contribution in traditional Open
Source is code, it is a little different with the Open Clip Art Library
project in that an actual clip art donation is just as helpful as the
code supporting it.

For March the Open Clip Art Library encourages submissions of clip art
related to the concept of "Spring." In the coming months as the library
grows in size, the project needs new developers to help build tools to
process this growing repository. Upcoming planned features that the
project needs assistance on include capturing and tracking of clip art
requests, user account management, adding WebDAV support, and developing
wizards to aid in composition.
