Papagayo 1.0 has been released. Not much new, but multiple dictionary files are now supported, making it pretty easy to customize the pronunciation of new words. Look for the file:

.../Papagayo/rsrc/dictionaries/user_dictionary

If you open it in a text editor, you will find instructions for adding your own words.

Also, the bigger news is that Papagayo has now been released under the GPL, a free software license that allows you to download and modify the source code to Papagayo if you wish. You can download the installer as well as the source code (if you want to do some Python programming) below:

Does this mean that someone can take it and port it to linux, given some quicktime library to link against? :-)

Yes. Although instead of using a QuickTime replacement, you would just need to write some audio-handling code for Linux. Instead of using QuickTime directly, Papagayo goes through an abstract layer - an audio object in the lm.py file in the source code.

Actually, to add to that - the sound library is the only thing that would need to be done. The rest is totally portable and uses a cross-platform UI library (wxPython). Aside from the sound part, it should run just fine on Linux without any modifications.

Thank you LM!
You're doing a great job but should this really be v 1.0 and not betaD?
There still are some bugs and typos, "No handler found for image type", "Cutt" etc.
And there are some usability stuff still in need of an fix, have to playback from frame 1 every time, no indication of which frame you are on with the red bar which dissapears when you let go of it and so forth.
Sorry if this sounded too negative but these are my feelings of this release.
