Thanks to the repeated efforts of John Faith, the latest version of
Inkscape now seems to run on OS X 10.3 aka. Panther. Many Panther
users reported some bugs and were disappointed that the new 0.45
release left them behind. These cruel days are hopefully over! A
build is available in Inkscape's development builds repository:
This build is made from a recent SVN snapshot so it has more features
(and potentially more bugs also ;) ) than the 0.45 release. The
application is also larger than usual (>100Mb) because it is not
stripped from debugging symbols.
Currently John is still struggling to complete a compile from a fresh
start. Once this is sorted out and once this first build gets some
testing, we'll provide a more official build (maybe a 0.45.2 if this
is ever planned to happen).
Thank you for your patience and thanks again to John who made this
