What is GSiril
GSiril can be downloaded from Richard Smith’s website and provides a simple and fast way of proving touches. For anyone used to using MicroSiril the syntax is very similar and, in fact, GSiril offers a MicroSiril compatibility mode. I’ve been trying without much luck to get GSiril compiled on Mac OS/X 10.11 so I have been using the Windows version.
