Introducing gnuclad

Donjan Rodic has released a cladogram tree generator named gnuclad – check this cool project out. With the use of his new tool he has completed version 10.2 of the GNU/Linux distro timeline!

Note how the svg version now has links to the corresponding distributions. Open it in your favorite svg-friendly web browser and click the labels – voilà.
