"An SVG Tiny 1.2 test fest will be held Sept 29 - Oct 2, 2008 in
People in the W3C SVG groups have asked if we might have anyone in
the area who could attend the "Test Fest".
So, do we have anyone who might be able to make that?
Here's a call for help, as i'm totally stuck in this.
I've been getting familiar with Python extensions and managed to whip up
I ran into an issue, though: if i call an external command (using
os.system('pwd'), for the simplest example), it executes it but doesn't
go through the rest of the extension script, closing the window and
returning to Inkscape. (i believe the same happens with exec statements)
I thought it could be that the extension architecture doesn't allow for
running external commands, but fact is that the extension actually
executes it before borking. Am i missing something obvious?
Thanks. As I am writing this, it appears that the storm was not so devastating for Clear Lake (which is between Galveston and Houston). It looks like there was a lot of flood damage for things near the Bay, but not much wind damage ("much" meaning destroyed) for the shorter buildings. So it looks like there will be no more Sunday brunches at the Hilton down the street. :-)
Hopefully we will be home in a few days, when power is restored. And then I can log back in. After several years, it has become a habit.
If anyone is curious, here is what I am talking about:

I just wanted to let you know that there will not be any win32
autobuilds for the next few days, as I am away from home while
Hurricane Ike wreaks havoc in my neighborhood. My home (Clear Lake, TX)
is in the direct path. I'm emailing from Kerrville, several hundred km away.
I will start making them again when things get back to normal. Hopefully,
my net connection will work when I return home! :-)
Some have already noticed: I've started removing obsolete files from the
libnr directory. Notably "nartbpath.h" has been removed =)
Most probable to be removed next are the files about NR::Point and
NR::Matrix (and translate, scale, rotate); but there are still many
places in the code where these are used so...
(we have about 6k occurances of "NR::" left in the code outside the
Verbalshadow is now helping with the NR:: --> Geom:: conversion, so if
you want to help and have questions, you can ask him too!
Firstly I want to apologize to you for writing to this discusion list
not to translators' list, but that one is a bit "overlsept" and doesn't
respond quickly. ;)
I've encountered to a few problems with translating tutorial. Namely
polish language and other too, I think, require that some words should
cling together. I though that adding a hard space ( ) would solve
the problem but XML parsel printed out a problem:
Making advanced/tutorial-advanced.pl.svg... Error on line 13 column 357
Error reported by XML parser: The entity "nbsp" was referenced, but not
declared. Transformation failed: Run-time errors were reported
So how to declare the nbsp char? This will be very helpful. I'd like my
translation to be correctly written and edited.
Would anyone be willing to help me?

sorry for my English :)
Sorry to be the noob coming in blind asking the broadest questions. But I
would like to try my hand at developing and need some guidance.
Firstly, I haven't touched C++ code since before 2000 where I used Turbo C++
to write the simplest of cin cout programs. So whilst I haven't forgotten
the concepts, the code I'm seeing is beyond me (I'm a PHP programmer). So
can someone recommend some reading material? Preferable in print form.
Secondly, I'm using NetBeans 6.5 to examine the code and at the moment it's
hilighting a lot of errors because I haven't included the necessary folders
for "Code Assistance". Should I include 'every' folder (and possibly sub
folder) in /devlibs/include? Are there other folders that might help to
Thirdly, do you use "btool" in place of when you would otherwise specify
"make" in an IDE? I don't really understand "btool"--I assume it makes it
easier to build Inkscape than running MinGW directly? I'm not sure if I
should favor using the MinGW compiler when Netbeans has support for it,
especially for debugging? I have created btool and build Inkscape
successfully with it.

Hi again, another problem I'm having is that wmf import seems to be
broken in inkscape 0.46 (both on CentOS 5.2 and F9). The same wmfs are
working fine in Inkscape 0.45 (tested on CentOS 5.2). This is very
annoying because wmf used to be a good file format for exchange with
commercial Windows application, such as ChemDraw and others.
You can find example files on my webserver (original wmf file and
Inkscape 0.45/0.46 screenshots):
Is there any fix/patch for this behaviour?
Hi everybody, I got a strange problem with inkscape, psfrag and eps. The
situation: I am using psfrag to replace text (with counters, but that
doesn't really matter) from Inkscape-eps-figures during latex compiler
runs. The problem is that it works only if the embed type 1 font option
in Inkscapes eps-export is deselected (export text as paths is
deselected too). But unfortunately then all the text appears as a sort
of a typewriter font (so the installed type1-fonts are not used?).
If I activate the embed fonts feature the replacements seem to be made
for the .dvi that is produced by latex, but in the final .eps or .pdf
the to-be-replaced text strings show up again. Any Ideas how this issue
can be avoided?
The system is a Fedora 9 Linux box with all the updates so far (Inkscape
0.46, Texlive 2007).
