so long, and thanks for the cheese

yeah, so long.. soc is finished by about 34 minutes ago and cheese is about 95% of my expectations and initial proposal. of course i wont stop here, and develop cheese further on, with some kick-assing-ideas until we finally can teach people, that some fresh cheese is even better than premorse apples..

now this is the real "dot-oh"-release, even if there is a "one" at the end, have fun with it!

what is it?

Cheese is a Photobooth-inspired GNOME application for taking pictures and videos from a webcam. It also includes fancy graphical effects based on the gstreamer-backend.
