Announcing XTerm Colour Chart 2.0 “Old and busted: Colour Cubes. New hotness: Colour Cows” release.
The script has been completely rewritten. It now requires python 2.3 or later for the optparse command-line parsing module.
Many new features have been added to this version:
- Five different charts available in 256 and 88-colour modes
- Origin and rotation of colour cube is now configurable
- Size of colour cells is now configurable
- Colour palette now exactly matches xterm defaults
- Resetting colour palette is now flicker-free
- Source code is much nicer (and commented!)
