I notice that we have two extensions to do function plotting: old
"wavy" and new "function plotter". Johan, since you added the latter,
please clean this up by removing one of them (make sure no
functionality is lost!).

The quality of the Autopackage builds could be greatly increased with
more consistent testing. There is a need for volunteers running various
distros (Slackware, Suse, Mandrake, Fedora, Debian) and various versions
of these distros to work with the autopackager to ensure compatibility
throughout the release cycle. This work involves regular downloading and
installing of inkscape autopackages (about 10MB), submitting detailed
bug reports to the autopackager and testing fixes as they are prepared.
Snapshot builds for testing live at:
I have a problem when I try to use the latex formula module: nothing
appears, I have this message in my terminal :

Any idea ?
So, I think we're going to have a booth at SCALE this year. Josh has
volunteered to take a leadership role in that -- so I'm going to play
SCALE cheerleader. Which means, SUBMIT ABSTRACTS! :)
It's February, and unlikely that the weather is better where you are
than it is going to be in LA. Southwest flies to LAX so it means you
can probably get a cheap flight. You can walk to the hotel from LAX.
The conference is on the weekend.
I think it would be very cool to have a set of Inkscape presentations.
Forward this to your GIMP/Blender/Scribus friends, perhaps we can get a
Linux Graphics track :)
SCALE is a cool conference, small and laid back. Still a volunteer run
thing, so the registration fee isn't crazy. But, every year the
speakers have gotten better, and the overall quality has gone up. I
don't expect this year to be different.
 - Not that I would recommend this. The traffic around LAX is awful,
so unless you're invincible to cars, take the hotel shuttle.

If you're considering making a presentation at the 5th annual So Cal
Linux Expo, be advised that the window to submit your CFP closes Monday,
November 20th. Get your proposal in now!
In the same vein, SCALE is sponsoring a one-day Open Source Health Care
Summit on Friday, February 9th, just prior to the Expo. If you use Open
Source software in the health care arena, here's your chance to talk
about it. The CFP for the Summit closes December 29th. For more
information, or for the details on the CFP, see

Yes, the GTK+ theme.
It's generally shipped with most RedHat derived distros at the least.
I've been reading yout list for some time but this is my first message to
I think it could be useful a "fit selection to page" button, specially when
you get/made an artwork and you want to fit it into some specific format
(a3, a4...), for example working for a printing work.
I saw something like this to anybody was working with Macromedia Freehand.
This is only an idea, I don know if it's already implemented at devel
Excuse my poor English.
I just came across a blog entry discussing vector vs. bitmap for icons.
It also mentions a limitation with Illustrator, but that's a side one.
Anyway, just wanted to point this out as something we might look at. I know I'll
follow up on the icon aspects, as it falls in line with things I've discussed
with various icon authors in addition to the librsvg team, ksvg peoples, etc.
* This dialog now provides access to three more tracing parameters:
o Suppress speckles: If set, spots or speckles larger than
the given size are suppressed in the trace.
o Smooth corners: This parameter controls how much smoothing
is applied to corners in the traced path.
o Optimize paths: If set, trace paths are optimized by
joining adjacent Bezier segments with the given tolerance.
* The dialog is redesigned to use three tabs: Mode, Parameters,
and Preview. The controls are reorganized to be easier to find. Most
labels and tooltips are rewritten for clarity.
* The trace preview image is made twice larger.

Here's a usability question that I'd like to get some feedback on.
Myself, I'm undecided.
How to display and input values of opacity and blur?
1. As percent, 0 to 100, or 0.0 to 100.0.
Pro: easier to pronounce; more common in "real life"; spinbutton can
be shorter by one character (dot).
Contra: requires a "%" label after the spinbutton; if the label is
not there (as e.g. in the statusbar there's little room for it), it
may be more difficult to guess, when you see e.g. "15", that the
maximum is 100; requires a change from the Inkscape status quo.
2. As numbers from 0.0 to 1.0 (with two or three significant digits).
Pro: no need for a % label; easier to guess what the maximum is
(though still not entirely obvious, unless you have a slider too); no
need to change the status quo.
Contra: slightly more "geeky", more cumbersome to type and
pronounce, requires slightly wider spinbutton.
