Rapicorn Release 13.03.0

Rapicorn 13.03.0 is available for download:


Rapicorn is a toolkit for rapid development of user interfaces for C++
and Python. The toolkit is currently in alpha development stage, where a
strong set of foundation technologies has already been established.

Everybody is invited to participate with ideas, code or wiki
contributions, and artwork (we still need a logo, and always need icons
and SVG themes).
