We're pleased to announce the release version 0.6.0 of Overflow 
(http://freespeech.sourceforge.net/overflow.html), aka Open Mind Speech base, 
aka Piper PL. You can download it from sourceforge at: 

This release brings a number of important improvements:

- Many, many improvements to the gnome GUI (copy/paste, tooltips, bug fix, ...)
- C++ code generator (generated code can now be compiled on Win32)
- Basic networking support
- Improved debugging
- Speed improvements (also, auto-detection of 3DNow! and SSE)
- Overflow "shell scripts" (#! files)
- Lots of fixed bugs
- Big code cleanup and simplification (warning, this breaks some minor things)

There are also good news for the project. Overflow has been adopted by InfoSpace 
Speech Solutions for implementing part of a speech recognition engine and should 
ship in a future version of the product. Note, I (Jean-Marc) work for InfoSpace. 
Overflow is now also used in the mobile robotics lab at University of Sherbrooke 
and a robot control toolbox is soon to be released!

There is now an on-line survey on SourceForge. Tell us what you think about 
Overflow at: http://sourceforge.net/survey/survey.php?group_id=590&survey_id=11967
