Just an absolute newbie running Inkscape 0.48.2 in a well working,
really beautiful, vintage declared but loved computer (2.1 GHz PowerPC
G5 & Mac OS X.5.8).
To get Previews from the Open Clip Art Library*, it is needed to be
registered at the openclipart.org site and fill up the user account data
in the Inkscape Preferences**?
* File > Import from Open Clip...
** Import/Export > Open Clip Art Library Username & Password.

I know that some features of Inkscape svg go
beyond the official svg standard and hence may
not be interpreted properly by web browsers etc.
Is there a list of these features somewhere?
Free list of books for self-publishers:
PDF e-book: "Create Book Covers with Scribus"
If I know of a place that could receive an announcement, that's not on any
of the lists on that wiki page, how do I put it on the list? I do have edit
permission on the wiki, but I'm just not sure if I should add a new site
(I'm thinking of Full Circle Magazine http://fullcirclemagazine.org/ where 1
of InkscapeForum.com's members writes an ongoing series of tutorials -- a
new one every month!)

The Inkscape community proudly announces the release of Inkscape 0.91.
Inkscape is a drawing and painting tool similar to Illustrator,
CorelDraw, and Xara X, but with features, new tools, and interface style
of its own. It emphasizes the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics
(SVG) file format, but reads and writes a wealth of other formats
including PDF, so it is an easy complement to your other graphics and
desktop tools. Best of all, Inkscape is created *by* the community *for*
the community: Inkscape is 100% Open Source and freely available to
everyone in the world.
This release marks the culmination of a multi-year effort to switch to a
new internal graphics rendering engine, Cairo. This brings performance
enhancements and more accurate rendering of drawings. Thanks go
especially to Google for sponsoring much of this work.
A new Trace Pixel Art feature enables creation of vector art from
bitmaps, sprites, and icons. A new Symbols Library provides reusable
graphics elements - you can even read in Visio symbol libraries. New
Snapping options and improved Snap preferences make it easier to quickly
place items in the alignments you need. The tools for arranging objects
offer several new ways to position the elements of a drawing. Tons of
other little improvements have been made across all the other tools as
Several new file formats are supported, including FXG, SIF and HTML5
export; and VSD and CDR import. EMF/WMF are now readable and writable
for all platforms. And XCF, PDF, EPS, and PS+LaTeX support are improved.
Inkscape has a rich Extension ecosystem, which is well known for
bringing clever, cool, and innovative new ideas. Over a dozen new
extensions are added in this release, including an Isometric Grid
Generator, a Bitmap Cropper, a Text Extractor and a Text Merger, an HSL
Adjuster, a Font Replacer, a Voronoï Diagram Creator, and more.
The above barely scratches the surface of all the new stuff included in
this release. For the full story, including examples and screenshots,
please see our detailed Release Notes:
The Inkscape developers plan to meet for a 3-day Hackfest in Toronto at
the end of April 2015. You can help us to improve Inkscape by donating
to help cover travel, room and board so our international volunteer
developers can attend the hackfest in person:
Inkscape icon brilliant! Do not change! Except perhaps a restrained colour

Yoshimi is a FLOSS soft-synth that is in need of a start-up splash image.
The project page that includes a copy of the desktop icon is:
A bit of history and information about how the name came about is:
My first thought was something along the lines of Yoshimi throwing various
musical symbols at the robots cowering in the corner, but am open to any other
Ideally, I would like to present several options to people on the
yoshimi-user list and for them to vote on which they prefer.
