gElemental (a Periodic Table) for Software Boutique?

Name:

gElemental

Description:

gElemental is an excellent Periodic table visualizer with detailed information on every element.

Link to the website:

Best Open Source Mac Software Development Software 2024

Source:

gElemental is offered in the official Ubuntu repositories, under the Universe/Science section.
It is no longer supported by its author, but has been maintained in several distros.

Architectures:

Don't know. i386 and amd64 are supported for sure.

Rationale:

The Education section of the Boutique needs some lovin'. And gElemental is a core education tool and a staple of good Gnome 2 development.

No longer maintained by its author, it is however kept alive by some package maintainers a little around the linux community, with the latest patch having been offered by the OpenSUSE project (if I'm not mistaken: AUR (en) - gelemental).

The Ubuntu version is stable, runs perfectly well in Ubuntu-MATE and I have yet to see this simple but useful application crash in 16.04
