---------- Forwarded message ----------

I am pleased to announce the release of Ocrad 0.7.

Ocrad is an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/ocrad/ocrad.html.

The sources can be dowloaded from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/ocrad/ or from
your favorite GNU mirror.

The md5sum is:
1893a8b8c3b6848392160e47be2b1de6  ocrad-0.7.tar.bz2

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by
appending ".sig" to the URL.

Changes in version 0.7:

* Internal change to UCS (Universal Character Set) instead of ISO 8859-1.
* Default charset is now ISO 8859-15 (latin9).
* Ocrad now recognizes Turkish characters (ISO 8859-9).
* Added new output format (UTF-8).
* Added new options --charset and --format.
* Added man page.

Be aware that frames, lines, pictures, etc, can (by the moment) totally 
confuse ocrad.

Please report bugs to <bug-ocrad@gnu.org>.
