The new PDF exporter writes PDF directly while the earlier PDF
exporter actually wrote postscript files that where converted to PDF
files. This limited the resulting PDF to features available in PS (no
transparency, for instance), but being new and immature the new PDF
exporter miss several features the old PS->PDF conversion had; such as
text objects and embedded bitmaps.
The plan with including the new PDF exporter in 0.44 was/is to have a
Google student extend/rewrite it (or maybe just use it as a study
object and later abandon it) and finally make Inkscape export PDF
files by use of Cairo.
Bugs filed today on dash-patterns, miter-limits and transparency will
directly help the next PDF exporter.
This is a known limitation :-(
Maybe these are a more accurate links:
You can always use the old route and go SVG->PS->PDF if you need
images. Simply re-activate the old ps2pdf.inx extension you are back
with the same PDF exporter is 0.43.
Err.. bug-fixes to the current PDF exporter are not picked-up?
