I am pleased to announce the release of GNU Ocrad 0.27.

GNU Ocrad is an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program and library based on a feature extraction method. It reads images in pbm (bitmap), pgm (greyscale) or ppm (color) formats and produces text in byte (8-bit) or UTF-8 formats.

Ocrad includes a layout analyser able to separate the columns or blocks of text normally found on printed pages.

Ocrad can be used as a stand-alone console application, or as a backend to other programs.

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

The sources can be downloaded from http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/ocrad/ http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/ocrad/ or from your favorite GNU mirror.

The sha256sum is:

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending '.sig' to the URL. If the 'gpg --verify' command fails because you don't have the required public key, then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 8FE99503132D7742

Key fingerprint = 1D41 C14B 272A 2219 A739  FA4F 8FE9 9503 132D 7742

Changes in version 0.27:

  * This is a maintenance release.

* A GCC warning about catching std::bad_alloc by value has been fixed. (Thanks to Mohammad Akhlaghi).

  * Errors are now also checked when closing the input file.

* The configure script now accepts appending options to CXXFLAGS using the syntax 'CXXFLAGS+=OPTIONS'.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to bug-oc...@gnu.org
