I will be coordinating our hackfest and the LGM event in Toronto at the
end of April and beginning of May. I've prepared a Wiki page with a list
of who is attending along with some travel information.
I would like to encourage everyone in the Inkscape community to attend
these events. We still have unallocated travel funds available. It is
not necessary to be attending both events. Send an email to Bryce if you
wish to attend. The funds are on a first come/first served basis.
The Wiki page is at:
there's another page which could also profit from your feedback:
I'd especially like to know if I understood the 'policy' related things
correctly and if you have a link to add to the link section.
Tav already helped by providing some keywords and some hints, but I'd
like to know if I got it right before the page is published ;)
Currently, links are not yet working, this will happen only after the
page is moved to the 'real' website.
Thank you, again ;)
At 19:17 UTC (15:17 EST) the website went down. This was caused by the
failure of the mysql database server at py1.osuosl.org All web pages
received a 502 error.
At 20:18 UTC (16:18 EST) I noticed the error and restored a backup to a
slower local sqlite database. You may have noticed login failures at
this time and a lack of download files. A ticket was filed with osuosl.
At 21:27 UTC (17:27 EST) osuosl responded via irc that the database
machine was back up. Together pwnguin and I worked on restoring mysql
At 22:05 UTC (18:05 EST) the website was back online with a few of the
issues found reported in a bug report for later.
If you see any more errors, I should be getting emails after the 7k
initial emails clear my local email client. I will get to them.

I need your help to update the "The next Release" page on our website.
After receiving confirmation from Bryce, I've already cleaned it out and
added a little intro text for 0.92:
suv kindly provided me with a tentative list for the most important
changes which will (probably) find their way into 0.92.
I would like to ask you to help me sort through this list, and make
additions, so the two sections in the lower part of the page can be
Only important features / bug fixes should go there, and only those
which are quite certainly going to be in 0.92 (page will be translated,
and hopefully won't need to be changed too often).
Some are also mentioned on the Wiki page for 0.92 here:
http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Release_notes/0.92 (google cache
can be used until it's up again).
This is the list I got from suv:
(and can someone explain what 'Selection sets' are? Something like a group without grouping, even over different layers?)
* Units: internal resolution switched to 96dpi
* Templates: cleanup, new procedural templates
* Objects dialog
* Selection sets
* New patheffects (see release notes)
* Mesh gradient tool
* SVG 2 features: e.g. for markers ('auto-start-reverse', 'context-stroke', 'context-fill')
(ask Tav what else is new in trunk i.e. not already in 0.91)
New features in progress (branches not merged yet):
* Enhanced mirror and rotate_copies patheffects
* New transform_by_two_points patheffect
* Flatten overlapping and clipped objects (useful for plotting or PostScript export)
Notable bug fixes:
* correct handling of parent transforms (on groups, layers) for clones
* improved performance for (de-)selecting a large number of nodes
* EMF/WMF fixes (clipping, text position)
* fixes for rendering caching
Details from the bug tracker:

Bug #168651 "Tiled Clones" inside transformed groups broken

Bug #772057 Inconsistent handling of parent transforms or 'viewBox' attribute in text tool controls
Bug #918319 Printing offsets page (Windows)
Bug #1152657 Paste selection with original+clone(s): Wrong placement between original and clones
Bug #1245339 When changing a clone's parent's layer, the clones shift position

I was using inkscape for converting svg files to pdf, so that i can use
it for my latex documents.
Everything works fine a few month ago. But, today when I use it again, I
find out I can't compile my document.
And, it's because the pdf file that inkscape export contains multiple
pages (just one line or one shape for each page).
Here is how I generated the pdf
inkscape -D -z --file=image.svg --export-pdf=image.pdf --export-latex
For me, all svg files generates this problem. One of the file is:
The version is Inkscape 0.91 r13725 (Jan 30 2015).
However, if i remove the "--export-latex" option, everything works fine.
Can anyone help me with it? Thanks a lot!
I've seen some recent effort to build Inkscape as a native MacOSX
GIMP is now built as a native MacOSX application (and it works nicely),
therefore I believe that there should not be huge roadblocks in the
underlying technology. What is the status for Inkscape? From the above
linked page it is difficult to get the wide picture.
I have more development experience on Linux than on MacOSX, but I would
like to dedicate some time and help on this effort. Where should I start?

Subject: [Hosting] OSL Build, Test and CI Infrastructure Survey
We're investigating expanding our build and test infrastructure to serve
the open source community. We have created a short survey  to learn what
build, continuous integration and test services and tools your project uses
and/or needs. We have already created SuperCell, however we realize its not
meeting the needs for all of the projects and we'd like to fix that.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could answer a few quick questions so
we can better help your project and the FOSS eco-system at large.

I am very much in favor of moving all the non native file format options
to export. Apart from preventing saving into lossy formats, it really
makes more sense from a logical point of view to have the non native file
formats reside in export. Even plain SVG should be considered to be in
this category. It is not about the fact you can edit a non native file
format, I would like to state that the open dialog can allow opening 3rd
party file formats as usual. When it comes to saving file I would like to
see what I make being exactly what is being saved and not accidentally end
up with conversion errors.
From a UX perspective it makes more sense as well to have the Export
option open up dialogs for each and every separate file format that relate
to this file format and perhaps a small About this format screen what the
expected loss could be. I don't care much about what other programs do on
this issue and would certainly not point to Adobe software for good UI
examples, but would like to state that it would allow for a more logical
placement of interactions and probably would simplify work flow.
I would suggest to add an option save project button though. This opening
an option to save the current file in iteration form from the last used
name (by adding a number or letter) and generating an number of export
files, such as .pdf, png or whatever, possibly generate several versions
of SVG, with css exports file attached to it, copies of used fonts and
what all the like. It's a crying shame that SVG fonts got dropped in SVG2
or it would be another great option to include, but having a tool like
this would open up a really nice work flow method that can safe wads of
time in producing content and give a clear insight in the differences of
I could even envision creating native files that in one case use relative
path and in the other version absolute path. Very handy when it comes to
testing files locally and having to produce something that runs in a web
browser as content hosted on a web site. Currently that is a question of
opening up the file in an editor and changing all the friggin path names.
