+Spiro release 0.01
+4 May 2007
+Raph Levien
+This is a very rough release of the Spiro toolset that I've been using
+to create my fonts. The main program is ppedit, and there's a more
+detailed README in that directory.
+To build ppedit, do:
+cd ppedit
+It requires Gtk2 and cairo.
+The curves/ subdirectory contains python utilities for manipulating
+curves, including a Bezier optimizer.
+The font/ subdirectory contains tools for segmenting scans and
+compositing them into classes, suitable for tracing over. (Note,
+however, that the gtk2 build of ppedit doesn't yet load background
+images for tracing).
+Always see for more updates.
