Hi everyone!

It's been delayed by all my commitments and pushed back by all my distractions. But most of the wait has been because our objectives for this release were pretty tricky to implement!

What's new in GNU.FREE 1.9?

+ Bug fixes
+ FreeInstall now parses XML config files
+ XML config now means we support multiple types of election system: the first being Borda and First Past the Post (this is the big one and it's been on the TODO for sooo long).

All this means that we'll be working to including support for extra voting systems as time goes by. Also the XML infrastructure means we can do some interesting things elsewhere too.

So to download please visit:

All the best,
