fprint project featured in LWN
The article mentions that libfprint does not support identification (one-to-many fingerprint matching) yet. I just released libfprint v0.0.4 which adds identification support, and fprint_demo v0.4 which includes a GUI to demonstrate it. Talk about yesterday’s news ;-)
Torkild Retvedt contributed a logo, which you can see above. I’m happy to consider further logo submissions, but I do like Torkild’s and it will do very nicely for an initial project logo. Thanks Torkild!
Patrick Guignot spotted the LWN article, did some further research, and then published an article about fprint on linuxfr.org. I have only seen the google translation, but I must say, translation artifacts aside, that is an extremely well written article which has hit on exactly what I’m trying to achieve. I’ve written to Patrick to see if he’ll translate it into English or give me permission to find someone else to do so – I will publish any results here.
Update: Patrick doesn’t know English well enough to write his own translation. Any French-speaking volunteers who wouldn’t mind spending some time translating this into English?
