Bruce the Presentation Tool is for Python programmers who are tired
of fighting with presentation tools. In its basic form it allows
text, code or image pages and even interactive Python sessions. It
uses PyGame and is easily extensible to add new page types.
Changes in 1.2:
* added control-F to switch between fullscreen and windowed mode
* added ShellInterpreterPage and SpawnPage
* added socrates.py driver script - see doc/socrates.txt
* many, many new features added - highlighting of code pages,
timed auto-advancing of pages, simple syntax for text page
effects, autotyping enhancements... and much more. See
doc/socrates.txt for more.
It runs on Unix, MacOS and Windows, and requires pygame.
