[Inkscape] Announcing lib2geom 0.2.0 (http://2geom.org)
by Joshua L. Blocher
2geom is a library for performing geometric calculations on paths and

After a busy year with johan, verbalshadow and mgsloan working on the
inkscape port to 2geom; jfbarraud and marco developing some sophisticated

goriccardo checking details and mental doing everything in between, we are
releasing a new release for distributions and in particular, inkscape and
scribus to target.

of us, download it, build it, and start playing with the toys!
