RSS feed, great!
No <link> in page header makes it v.hard for Firefox users to add a livemark though.
<link rel=\"alternate\" type=\"application/rss+xml\" title=\"inkscape news\" href=\"/inkscape.rss\" />
I've just noticed that the RSS feed for inkscape.org isn't synced
with latest news on the website. It's currently missing at least latest
post by rejon. Can anyone please check why and fix it?
I remember the feed-generator script is called from a cron (which?),
maybe the problem is there or in the switch between CVS and SVN repo...

Hello everyone. I've been playing with Inkscape for a while now, keep up the good work.
I am interested in Flash export functionality for Inkscape. Are any developers working on this? I would be interested in helping out.
Since it's my first attempt at trying to make things improve in a
software, using cvs, and trying to understand a whole project (and
written in c++... sometimes), please don't be too harsh on me and on my
english level, I'm just a little frenchy :)
Very used to illustrator, I miss some little things that make life
easier, like moreeffective snapping.
So I tried to understand the whole object tree, reading both the doxygen
and the code (...when there were comments) and finally managed to have a
patch made. The functionnality is a pretty little one, I just made
guides highlight when moved objects snap against them. For now, this
only works for dragged objects and rectangles being drawed.
I post this for anyone to check if I do right, naming functions,
indenting, thinking the whole problem, so please, feel free to
over-comment my "work", for me to know if I can go on with these kind of
updates. This is the first patch of my life, I hope I've made it well.
Could you test that ?
Next things I could look at could be :
- Snapping modes (enable/disable) Bounding box and dots snapping. I
thik it could be great too temporarily disable bounding box snapping,
just to make sure only dots do it.
- Providing visual feedback of which of these is used now (you grab
a rectangle, its bounding box snaps a guide, the guide turns red
(default highlight color), and a little text appears along the guide
saying (snapping to boungbox). If you drag farther, the boundingbox will
stop snapping and it's the corner dot that will do, so the text'll be
"dot snapping" or something like this... maybe snapped dots could be
- Making grid lines highlight when snapped, just like guides (it was
much easier for guides since they are separate objects and the
color/hicolor alread existed)
- Trying to make more snapping objects... maybe angled guides,
objects themselves, middle of objects, etc... all these could be mode
What do people think ? What feature would you like most ?
I have attached a patch that uses GtkFileChooserDialog instead of
GtkFileSelection when you click browse in the export dialog.
I realize after reading the roadmap that the export dialog is due for
an upgrade to gtkmm. However, I figured that it wouldn't hurt to have
this in anyway until then.
Otherwise, thanks for a great piece of software.

Even when using a graphics tablet with pressure sensitivity, the
Calligraphy pen's strokes often look too smooth and artificial. To
enable a more natural look, the new Tremor parameter is added to the
Calligraphy tool in this version. Adjustable in the Controls bar from
0.0 to 1.0, it will affect your strokes producing anything from slight
unevenness to wild blotches and splotches. This significantly expands
the creative range of the tool.
Inkscape. Draw Freely.
I have recently uploaded a patch which provides an undo history
dialog. It is similar to those found in e.g. GIMP and Photoshop
(I don't know if it's in Illustrator, CorelDRAW, etc). To get an idea
what it looks like without having to apply the patch, here's a
screencast (in flash, sorry ;) showing it in action:
First of all, I'm not sure if this is a requested addition to Inkscape
-- I can't recall any discussion about it on the list and I didn't
find anything in the wiki. Personally, however, I do find it useful
(at least occasionally), so I went ahead and implemented it.
Secondly (if it's found to be of value), this patch could use some
rather heavy reviewing. It's my first patch and I'm not confident
enough with the code base to feel sure about what the "right"
Here are some additional concerns:
* To get the type of an event I rely entirely on the current event
context. This obviously not (always) a correct assumption. An example
of this problem: setting an object's color while the node tool is the
* In order to populate the tree with icons I added a help function to
widget/icon.cpp to get the internal Pixbuf of an icon. This could
be solved in much a better way when the gktmmified stock icon
system is in place, but for now, this was easiest way for me to
* There are bugs lurking which I have not been able to
reproduce. Some seem to be the result of problems with undoing of
certain types of events; i.e. the bugs are in the current code. I'm
looking into this... For now, here is at least one I managed to
nail down and put in the tracker:

sorry I supposed that once more I forgot to reply to all and replied
to ted only instead of replying to the list.
yes it compiles like a charm with gtkmm 2.4.10 now and I am using it
thank you for the reminder... and for the software.
