NEW: directory shortcuts

The list of folder shortcuts in the Open dialog includes the folder
with Inkscape's SVG examples for easy access. Similarly, the Save
dialog has a shortcut for the user's own templates dialog making it
easy to save the current document as a template (if saved as
default.svg, it will be loaded every time you run Inkscape or create
new document with Ctrl+N; with any other name, it will be added to the
File > New submenu).

Sounds neat. Is a more usual (Scribus-like) dialog for managing
templates still planned for future releases? :)

Sounds like something good to do, I'm curious if we shouldn't do it more
generally in the script implementation though.

Kees, is there some way to validate a command line to make sure you're
not causing any security holes by calling shell variables that you don't
mean to?  It seems like there should be something generic out there.

Batik PDF

Hi all,

This is not important, just FYI.  Batik (Java SVG package)
has a new beta on their site, the first for a long time:
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/batik/

Quite often we suggest to people that they compare Inkscape's
rendering to Batik, since it is considered to have the
best rendering available.  With the addition of the FOP library,
it can also render to PDF.  I wrote a tiny amount of Java code
to make a command-line tool to convert SVG's
to JPEG, PNG, and PDF.

I uploaded a copy of the Batik lib with that class to here:
http://inkscape.modevia.com/win32libs/batikrender.7z

If you are on Windows and don't want to install Java, here
is a copy with an embedded Java engine:
http://inkscape.modevia.com/win32libs/batikrender-win-jre.7z

The first one is best for most people.

Just run:

svgrender <svgfile> <outfile>

The output type will be selected by the file suffix.

Re: removing effects

Never use them anymore. I think we're safe to do this.

Cannot find that 'batch export' thing anywhere in 0.45.1

Can you leave the code for both in the extensions directory (whatever it is) 
because they could serve as tutorials in themselves? Perhaps make a new 
directory called "samples" and put defunct (and others) scripts in there.

Re: removing effects

I have a general question about this:  Do we want to support
Perl in the future, or rather say that Python is the scripting
language that Inkscape wants to support? 

I don't use the scripting framework, so I don't really have an opinion.
But I do know that it can be better to stick with one thing and do it
well.

Speaking of Python, a reminder:
Has anyone decided what to do concerning the demise
of PyXML?  It's dangerous for our complete script module
to depend on a dead package.  I looked, and Python now
has its own XML API.  Is there a reason that Python's own
is not being used?

Re: SoC 3D box tool - website updated

Dave & Ann Marie Barry schrieb:

That's what I was also planning to do in the next week or two.
Unfortunately, I will be really busy for the next few weeks due to
the completion of my Diplom thesis. But I'm sure I won't be able to
resist the temptation. :)

BTW, thanks for offering to help, Dave! Much appreciated. I must
confess, however, that figuring out the maths and writing the
fundamental classes is part of why this project fascinates me so much
(apart from the GUI aspect), so I'd really like to work on that, too.
But I reckon that there is enough to do for two people - just don't make
me redundant, please. ;) Furthermore, exchanging and discussing ideas
may be very helpful. The most important thing, though, is IMHO that the
design should be carefully adapted to the way we want the tool to
eventually work. I only made a few drafts in the last days, but I hit
upon a couple of points where I considered it worthwile to write a class
in a slightly different way than would be most suitable for, say, a
general purpose library. I think this can often facilitate interaction
with the GUI. I can say more about that as soon as I have the time to
really think about the class design in detail.

A general question: Just in case I should really be accepted to
work on this for SoC, to which extent is it 'legal' to work together
with other people? May that be a problem with the regulations?

Cheers,

I thought quickly about this but decided to make a quick fix for only the string parameters. I think it is
definitely not straightforward to correct a complete command line. Consider this example:

the script extension.py has 2 parameters: string1 and string2. The user enters:
string1:  ' type:" --param="test" " at the commandline '
string2:  ' hello '

The (unescaped) command line will look like:
  python extension.py --string1="type:" --param="test" " at the commandline" --string2="hello"

It should look like:
  python extension.py --string1="type:\" --param=\"test\" \" at the commandline" --string2="hello"
But could just aswell mean (if the corrector does not know which parameters exist):
  python extension.py --string1="type:" --param="test\" \" at the commandline" --string2="hello"

Regards,
Johan

Booking your room for LGM 2007

Hello all,

This is to remind you to book your room for LGM. We have a special price for LGM participants. Please review the Hotel info on the Create wiki. Note that you can extend your stay for the same low price, at your convenience.

http://create.freedesktop.org/wiki/index.php/Conference#HOTELS

Please note that while the online reservation system is working properly, the automatic email reply at Studio Hôtel is not. You will get a confirmation email sent to you manually by the dedicated Studio Hôtel staff. This takes at least 24 hours and maybe a bit more. Please report any issue directly to me. I will make sure you get this confirmation email. But a bit of patience from your part will be much appreciated and might avoid some extra work on my part. Thanks for your understanding!

We are just a little over a month before the opening of LGM in Montréal. I wish you a good trip. We are currently working on the program and it will be available on our website soon.

Don't hesitate to get back to me with any questions regarding LGM.

Looking forward to welcome you all in Montréal!

Cheers!

Louis
