Open Clip Art Library Release 0.15 Announcement

July 8, 2005 UTC — Release 0.15 of the Open Clip Art Library
( is now on-line for download as an individual
package consisting of 4336 images submitted by over 430 artists from
around the world. The amount of high quality clip art has increased much
with the inclusion of Nicu Buculei's Playing Cards collection and Gerald
Ganson's package submission.

During the month of June, thanks to Google's Summer of Code, a student
developer, Greg Steffensen, has received funding to construct a
graphical client for the Open Clip Art Library. This client will be able
to be used inside Inkscape and other applications on the free desktop.
Also, this work is dependent upon the new document management system
(DMS) and is planned to use its SOAP-based webservice API to communicate
with the Open Clip Art Library.

In other news, developers Bryce Harrington and Jon Phillips are
scheduled to present at Desktop Developers' Conference 2005 in Ottawa,
Canada July 18-19. Harrington is presenting "Inkscape - An Open Source
Vector Drawing Application" and Phillips is promoting "Introduction to
the Open Clip Art Library," which will also be shown at SVG Open 2005 in
Enschede, Netherlands.

For the month of July, the focus of the project will continue to be
collecting summer themed clip art. However, in the background DMS will
be further connected and tested with's internals. 

The project encourages any interested person(s) to submit clip art
and/or to lend a hand to make the Open Clip Art Library a more extensive
resource of contributed clip art.
