JAnimationShop Reincarnates

Started work again on my favorite project JAnimationShop after a long time. It was started as a college project done in Java, then released on Had not worked on it for a long time now, and now it's time to implement the things that were planned, viz...

  • Refactoring the whole code to have a better Architecture and Design.
  • Incorporate some kind of plugin architecture so that users can write plugins to export/import different image formats.
  • Workout a file format for storing images in application specific format.
  • Implement Undo/Redo
  • Implement DnD.
  • ...
currently trying to prioritize on these plus some more features for the next big release, the list goes on growing though...

If anyone's confident at Java Image Processing just using the Java Core API, and want to contribute to this project in any way, feel free to contact me.

PS : (I don't intend using Java advanced imaging API, called JAI, anytime in the near future since it is still maintained by sun as an extension package)
