I am in need of a way to do a dashed path in inkscape. When I use the
stroke to path it shows up on my SVG as a dashed path, but when it
import that to my cutting machine it will cut as a regular path, not one
that has holes in it. What I need is a single line with little pieces
missing on the line. Does anyone know of an easy way to do this in
March 31, 2009 - Release 0.19 of Open Clip Art Library
(http://www.openclipart.org), containing over 12,000 high quality scalable
vector graphics (SVG) files released into the public domain by over a 1000
artists, is now available for download and use. In celebration of this
accomplishment, since OCAL���s last release happened in 2005, and March
being 5th anniversary of the Open Clip Art Library (OCAL), the OCAL
community set a goal to achieve 10,000 uploaded pieces of vector graphics.
The project achieved this with the 10,000th submission from user Boobaloo
who uploaded a graphic of an onion. The project congratulates Boobaloo for
uploading the 10,000th upload. Also, project congratulates all artists who
have uploaded in this anniversary OCAL10K sprint.
The project congratulates Nicu who personally crossed the 500 clip art
upload barrier and now has 696 pieces of clip art uploaded to the system.
All efforts towards the OCAL10K goal helped boost the site���s
registrations and focus on releasing monthly packages once more to make
this project a flowing river of clip art uploads. Since all contributions
to the project are released into the public domain via the Creative
Commons Public Domain Dedication, anyone may use the Open Clip Art Library
files for any use including collections, to make money, and to generate
compositions. However, the community encourages anyone who uses the clip
art to provide attribution back to the original clip art in the form of a
link or to announce the use of the clip art in some form.
For the month of April in lead up to the annual Libre Graphics Meeting
2009 in Montreal, May 5-9, 2009, the Open Clip Art Library is setting a
goal to achieve 12,000 pieces of uploaded clip art related to spring time,
release the 0.20 package of clip art, and to update the site���s software
to ccHost 5. The projects asks all who are software developers comfortable
with PHP and MYSQL, to consider joining the project now ti help with three
critical tasks of adding rendered thumbnails, update the site software to
ccHost 5, and to help roll-out our latest software theme.

Here is one quite nice entry to the discussion - from Lucas Franco
(Argentina) - thank you Lucas!
* I personally like the upper version better
* I like the rays around the SVG sun
* the Beziér handles are too much for my taste and reduces readability?
I don't know ...
Hi. I took the Jozef's banner and did some minor adjustments.
It looked very good but, in my opinion, had some minor defects (like
some overlappings that could be avoided, some elements too close or too
big and things like that.
I also added a gradient on the buildings shadows.
Here's the file.
after some time in beta, heavy testing and a lot of very helpful
feedback from the community, I am glad to be able to release version
1.0 of JessyInk today. I consider this to be the first feature
complete and stable release and I hope you'll have fun playing with
it. It is available for download either from launchpad (https://
launchpad.net/jessyink) or from GoogleCode (http://code.google.com/p/
image. When loading the image in a browser, JessyInk turns every
layer of the image into a slide of a presentation. Using the JessyInk
extensions, different transitions, effects and auto-texts (such as
slide numbers) can be assigned. Other features of JessyInk include an
index sheet mode and support for a master slide.
Special thanks go to Marcel Rouweler and heathenx for their feedback
and testing efforts as well as Ted Gould for integrating a patch
required by JessyInk into Inkscape.
I put up a poll online about the SVG Open 2009 header graphics. Please
note that none of the entries is final and modifications
could still be made. It is just important to find out which header
graphics is in favour and can be finalized.

I just wanted to put out that SVG Open 2009 is looking for header
graphics for their new website... which is about to go live.
SVG Open 2008 had a subtle header with outlines of the castles in
Nuremberg, so is probably not good for this year's conference in
If anyone is interested, this is a great opportunity to showcase both
SVG and Inkscape. I believe that the site will be able to serve SVG
directly for browsers that support it.
I've been trying to work out how to produce a mask, to be used for
compositing an image with ImageMagick by a CMS.
What I need is a white background and a rounded border (with a stroke
of one or two pixels), then with the middle punched out so an image on
the layer below shows through the hole. I've tried making three
layers, one solid white, one with a rounded rectangle with rounded
corners with a transparent fill, and a copy of the previous with no
stroke but with a solid fill, and tried various combinations of 'mask'
and 'clip' but I can't seem to find it.
Can someone help me before I resort to chucking it into Photoshop and cheating?
