I'm aware of the gcc issues but I thought it was mentioned that .42 was
available in Debian unstable but I dont' see it there (latest 0.41-5).
Any word? If it's not going to be there for a while, what is the best
alternative, autopackage ?
I just wanted to congratulate the entire Inkscape team on the 0.42 release.
I tried the final version and it works really well - in fact I've been
using it at work to do some of the graphics for a commercial product we're
working on. You guys have one of the best managed and most approachable
open source projects around, and you should be proud of that.
I'd also like to thank you all for bearing with us as maintainership of the
Inkscape autopackage transitioned away from me to Aaron. It's a young
technology but judging by the number of people using the Inkscape package,
it seems to be working OK. You can see how many people are installing an
autopackage for the first time by looking at the runtime download
statistics. Notice how much higher todays figure is already than yesterdays
(which was the first full day of counting) - and it's only 10:30am! That's
the impact of your release:
I'm at work at the moment (so can only play with the Windows build) and
have no net access where I'm currently staying, but I'll see if I can take
home the autopackage on my mp3 player and test it on my laptop.
Finally, I just realised that mail2web.com was breaking threading on the
list ... sorry about that. If anybody knows a better IMAP->webmail gateway
please let me know.
Again, congratulations! I can't wait to see what goodies the next version
has in it.

So, for a little project I made all the menus configurable by a file in
your home directory ~/.inkscape/menus.xml. They use the verb ids, and
you can pretty much move things around how ever you'd like. There are
still some rough edges, but it should be stable enough to have people
start passing around files of how they'd like the menus for discussion.
Then people can try them out.
Okay, I'm going to bed.
I did a fresh install of the 0.42 autopackage from
on my Mandriva 2005 LE.
I found the following strange behaviour:
- I create a new drawing with a circle.
- Duplicate the circle and resize it (the width of the stroke resizes
- Now if I select the second circle and try to set the stroke width to
1 pt by clicking on the up and down arrows of the width field in the
Fill and stroke dialog it only increases the width both clicking the up
or down arrow. The increment is also not one by one, but it is a
geometric increment: 4,1 -> 6,5 -> 10,4 -> 16,6 -> 20, etc
I hope you can reproduce this.

Based on feedback so far, we really need the option to NOT install the
language files when installing on Windows, so that Inkscape would only
use English. I think this should be a pretty simple patch to the nsis
installer file, to ask "Do you want to use English interface, or the
language of your Windows system (if Inkscape has a translation for
that language)". Added bonus if it can detect WHICH language is going
to be used. Any volunteers?
Inkscape. Draw Freely.
I'm just starting up with the project and want to run under XP. I have
been advised that VC++, which I would have preferred, is too difficult
to get going.
So I started with the 'Compiling Inkscape for the Win32 Platform'
document and cannot unpack a downloaded copy of gtk26 with 7-zip. I get
the error 'this is not a supported archive' with both gtk copies on the
website using either of the 2 available versions of 7-zip.
Downloading with IE produces different size files from using Firefox so
I'm guessing it's a download problem.
Can anyone point me to an alternative source of the gtk26 library,
perhaps in a normal zip format?

Xfig has got one possibility to set a special flag on text which means
that this text doesn't get exported on combined LaTeX ps but is written
to the LaTeX file which means that you're able to also use LaTeX
possibilies of typsetting mathematics and so on.
Do you think it would be much effort to add this to inkscape, too?
Because I *really* prefer inkscape over xfig :)
inkscape could became the tool of choice making figures for LaTeX..
xfig is nice but lacks some functionality.
The other thing is when exporting to ps inkscape currently just ignores
transparency.. All you would have to do having two rectangles
------ -- : rect1 without ++
---+++||| ++ : overlapping area
---+++||| || : rect2 without ++
|||||| rect2 is above rect1
would be splitting this rectangles into 3 and calculate the color of the
+ rectangle depending on the transparency of rect2 and color of rect1..
Then all 3 reactangles can be exported as it's done right now.
And because the function Stroke to path is already provided (although
I'm not sure how well it works using some advanced stroke style) it
shouldn't be that hard to implement. What do you think?
