Announcing Leonardo

Today I'm proud to announce a project I've been working on for the past few months called Leonardo. I've long believed there's a need for a good desktop drawing app that is completely cross platform, free, and open source. Leonardo is that app.

My vision is a drawing tool for the 21st century with a focus on usability, speed, and powerful plugins. The core of the app is written in Java, but more and more of the functionality will be built in JVM based dynamic languages like JRuby, JavaScript, and Jython.

Currently Leonardo is meant for doing UI mockups, simple multi-page presentations, and sketching; but we plan to add more document types and features in the future.

Please take a look at tell me what you think (or better yet join the dev list). We definitely need help in a lot of areas, so the more feedback the better.
