Inkscape 1.1.2 is mainly a stability and bugfix release.
It fixes numerous crashes and several major inconveniences, such as lost styling
when when converting text to path, or relative position of clones pasted into
a new document
In addition, we are releasing an alpha version of Inkscape 1.2, to facilitate
testing of major upcoming features, such as the multipage support, editable
markers, on-canvas alignment, revamped alignment and snapping options, layer
and objects dialog, etc. If you find any issue with this new version, please
report it tohttps://inkscape.org/report

I write from the FontForge project. Of particular interest to me is the Spiro
spline feature, which was originated around ten years ago by Raph Levien.
One thing I'd like to add, (which would benefit both our projects,) is the
ability of FontForge to understand the Inkscape Spiro serialization format.
However, there are several things about the format which to me as an outsider
appear to be defects serious enough that I have no idea how to even *import*
these splines correctly, much less export our Spiro splines to this format. I
would very much like to support the _de facto_ standard Inkscape has
originated of supporting Spiro in SVG, but I am lost.
George Williams, FontForge's original author, noticed this defect over eleven
years ago. Things are virtually unchanged since then, I checked `git
Spiro has five point types, not including beginning and ending points. They
* G4 curve (o)
* G2 curve (c)
* Corner (v)
* Left Constraint ([)
* Right Constraint (])
The ASCII single letters are the normal method of Spiro serialization, as
championed by Raph Levien and by us in FontForge.
Inkscape seems to create what I will call a "pseudo-SVG path". So, it is not
really an SVG path, but rather is an SVG path which undergoes transformation
into the typical Spiro format. Inkscape stores this in the "original-d"
So, given a Bezier spline with control points defined as (x, y, c1, c2),
Inkscape interprets a control point with only (x, y) to be a corner, meanwhile
a control point with all four is a G4 curve, and (x, y, c1, NULL) is a left
constraint while (x, y, NULL, c2) is a right constraint.
I can probably overcome this, although George Williams was right to be
skeptical of this format. There is no way I can see to define a G2 curve in
this strange "original-d" format.
Thus, this email. I write to ask a few things. I suppose first of all, what
are the chances that we can convince you guys to store Spiro splines in
plate format, or another widely accepted Spiro serialization format?
Second, if we cannot convince you to do that, how do I export FontForge spiros
which contain G2 control points to Inkscape's original-d format? It's not
possible, yes? So should I just silently fail and save them as G4? The curves
will not be the same if I do that. Should I disallow export to SVG w/Spiro if
glyph contains G2 control point? That seems a steep cost that will just
confuse my users, so perhaps I should abandon the whole thing if it comes to

work we can do. I've mentioned mixx so far. But generally anything related

I've finally secured funding for Linux developers.
Thank you for your patience.
this is my first post on this list. I'm not sure whether this is the
place to ask, but couldn't find a better one.
I chose to use inkscape for modifying vector-graphic-PDFs and convert
them to PNGs and also to a varienty of PDFs with extra information in a
background batch job. Basically this works well with official Inkscape
1.1 (c68e22c387, 2021-05-23) and the results are just as desired.
Unfortunatelly there is some glitch with inkscape freezing every some
To track down the above freeze I decided to try the latest inkscape
source and build it myself (Windows 10/Windows 11) to be able to debug
I found that the current app (24f6795) does not obey to the same CLI.
Calling --verb=my.custom.extension complains
Unable to find: my.custom.extension
verbs_action: Invalid verb: my.custom.extension
I get the same error message if I try to invoke as --
Both --action-list and --verb-list do not list any extensions.
The extension is part of the menu, so inkscape seems to know about it.
Commit 5e32ad5 "Menubar Filters + Extensions : Conversion to Actions"
removes extensions from the verb-list. Various comments suggest that
verbs are supposed to be moved to actions. Not sure whether that is the
plan for extensions as well.
So my question is: How can I invoke my custom extension from CLI in the
current version of inkscape (24f6795926, 2021-12-25) or any later?
Cheers and a happy new year to everybody,
