Inkscape Hackfest in Toronto underway
April 28, 2015, 3:34 p.m.
Between April 26th and 28th, Inkscape developers meet in Toronto for a hackfest to work on features and bugs and make technical decisions to move the project forward.
The issues addressed include 2Geom sync (Krzysztof), better GTK3 compatibility and work on the screen flickering issue (Alex), and reviewing and merging patches. We looked at some potential upstream Cairo work for projective transformation and path effects like Gaussian blur. We are also discussing and deliberating the testing framework and build system to use in the future, and how to incorporate SVG 2 and C++-11 features with an eye to preserving backwards compatibility. We're solidifying roadmap plans, and in particular starting work on a 0.91.1 bugfix release, and kicking off a new 0.92 release.
