Moodle 2.0 and PaintWeb test site

Hello everyone!

Two days ago I have uploaded a snapshot of the PaintWeb code and the integration scripts for Moodle 2.0 and Moodle 1.9, as required for the Google Summer of Code program. This snapshot contains only the code I contributed up until 14th of August 2009, and you can download it from the Google Summer of Code 2009 Moodle project site. Obviously, this code is provided only for recording the milestone I reached for the GSOC project deadline. Any paint tool user is supposed to get the latest code from my Git repository or from the PaintWeb project site.

Thanks to Anthony Borrow and Jordan Tomkinson, today a Moodle 2.0 with PaintWeb test site has been published. So, now you can try PaintWeb directly in Moodle. Make sure you login with the teacher account: user. Password is: demo.  

To try the paint tool, I have created a test course, and I added a glossary activity. Inside the glossary activity there's a concept I added. Go ahead and play with the glossary: add, edit or delete concepts. In the TinyMCE editor you can create new images and edit them seamlessly.

It should be noted that Moodle 2.0 and the paint tool integration are both under development. This means that Moodle devs have not yet completed upgrading all the code which deals with the HTML editors - so, other pages where TinyMCE is used might not have PaintWeb enabled because the configuration is still in "legacy mode" (no file attachments are allowed).

Anyone is welcome to provide me with feedback on the user experience, and any other thoughts.
