DGV 0.1 Stable Released

I have finally released a stable version of my DGV software. You can grab it on Sourceforge.
You can view some tutorials at the Google Code page.

What's DGV for? In my honours, I just wanted an easy, no fuss way to visualise my data (which was a 2D complex scalar field). To my dismay, I couldn't find one and ended up using Excel (I know.... really bad). So I wrote DGV as tool that allowed this. Most times I just wanted a tool view my data quickly. This is DGV's main goal. It has also been supplemented by my current Ph.D project on Image processing.

It has so far clocked over 2000 downloads and has far exceeded all my expectations. As such, it will be supported indefinitely into the future. I will also be adding my FTL Library to it soon, which should propel the software into the forefront of state-of-the-art Convolutions. The next major release will be after I submit my Ph.D Thesis (hopefully around March next year).

Note for Linux uses, the Linux build was built using the latest Ubuntu OS - Koala, so it requires the latest C++ standard libraries. In other words, it should run in any of the latest distros. This may be changed if it is found to be a major problem.
