Beside bug fixing and polishing PaintWeb in the past weeks, I have
also prepared a presentation about all the work I did this summer,
as part of my Google Summer of Code project. As such, I talked
about my GSOC project at the Linux
and Virtual Learning Environments 2009 seminary on Friday, the
28th of August.
You can download the presentation slides in Romanian and in
You may also watch the slides online at Scribd.com, both in
Romanian and in
English. Any feedback is welcome!

Today I finally managed to upload and release my latest project:
PaintWeb. Marius helped me with designing the GUI and with other suggestions.
PaintWeb is a
client-side Web application which allows users to draw online. It
makes use of some newer Web technologies, mainly
the HTML 5 Canvas 2D
context API. Currently,
it's in its infancy, but with lots of work planned ahead.
The major decision for me was to release this project as
open-source, under GPL v3. The project is
now hosted on the Google Code
Please contribute with feedback, bug reports and even code -
volunteers are welcome!
Lots of bugs in the Web application are already known, nonetheless
that shouldn't stop you from reporting them.
The Web application works in the latest versions of Opera, Firefox, Safari and Konqueror. Obviously, it also works with
any Gecko and WebKit based Web browsers.
Nightly builds of Firefox 3.1 and SVN trunk builds of WebKit have the best support for this Web
I'd like to mention that the greatest surprise to me was that the
new Konqueror 4 has its own Canvas implemention. They've done a
really great job!
I am looking forward to publish more information about the project
and to continue work on it.
Update 3 days later: Back in september we
presented PaintWeb at a local university-organised seminar. Today
we have updated the presentation and we translated it to English as
well. Go ahead and download the English or Romanian
