PFED in Australian Geographic

The PFED has got a mention in a recent Australian Geographic blog post about the National Geographic’s ongoing Enduring Voices project.

Hopefully they’ll have a chance in the future to mention some other great work going on in Australia, such as the Ma! Iwaidja Phone App, and classics like BOLD and PARADISEC.

Wunderkammer update

It’s been awfully quiet the past couple of months here at the PFED, but today we’re releasing new versions of Wunderkammer, wkimport and the wkimporting package. Wunderkammer has been updated to work with LWUIT 1.3 and numerous bugs have been spotted and squished. We’ve also added an ‘Importing tips’ section to the importing documentation that should help future users to avoid some common problems.

Have a look at the wksite:
