Why does KIso exist ?
Well, we all know Microsoft's Windows I think, though many people wish they had never made it's acquaintance. :)
Like nearly every mortal who is in pocess of a PC I also got familliar with it before I discovered Linux about the late 90's of the last century.
From Windoofs (sorry..) I mean Windows I knew programs like WinISO(tm) and ISOBuster(tm) and I did not find anything compareable for Linux, though it already offers everything that's needed for it.
So I started writing KIso to combine all the abilities of Linux concerning the work with ISO images in one easy to use GUI.
How is KIso written ?
KIso 0.1 and KISO 0.1.1 are completely written in GAMBAS.
Due to the fact that Gambas itself is still Alpha and constantly changing and C++ gives more opportunities and is more independant,
I decided to dare a rewrite in C++. So from KIso 0.2 on KIso is written in C++.
What is the current version of KIso ?
The current release of KIso is KIso 0.8.3. You can download it in the download section.
Under which licence is KIso published ?
KIso is published under the GPL.

* Bug fixes, bug fixes and last but not least bug fixes.
