ANN: Docpicture 0.2

P: n/a
Docpicture 0.2 has been released. You can download it from
http://code.google.com/p/docpicture/

Docpicture's goal is to enable embedding pictures inside Python
docstrings using some custom domain specific language (dsl).
docpicture includes a plugin architecture enabling users to extend it
by adding new dsl parsers. Docpicture behaves as an enhanced help()
for Python. It requires a default browser capable of displaying svg
images (e.g. Firefox 3)

=======================
This version of docpicture can display the following type of images:

1. turtles (!)
2. images downloaded from the web (in any format)
3. Mathematical equations (requires matplotlib)
4. UML sequence diagrams (require a live internet connection)
5. Full matplotlib plots.

This is very much a proof-of-concept version. Comments and
suggestions are most welcome. Code contributions [for other types of
images] even more so. ;-)
