I tested most filters today with Batik, Firefox and Opera and the results are prettily similar now in those three apps. Thus seemingly all filters who extensively use Color matrix (to control blur, transparency, lightings display wrong in Inkscape.

Thus if I am not wrong and if this is the only problem could we imaginate some kind of translator which converts filters color matrix data of the already created filters after this problem will be solved ?

I'm definitely aware of when we started to get filter support. :) And I
can see why it would have been so difficult to spot in the past when we
only had a couple primitives available.

For the record, by "key new feature", I'm referring to how "in your
face" filters will be by comparison to previous releases (as well as how
many more primitives are supported). I think that with having so many
complex filters as easily available as we do now, if the problem hadn't
have been noticed prior to release, it would not have taken long for a
user to report it.

Either way, it sounds like it's being addressed (if it wasn't
already)... so my concerns are definitely eased. Out of curiosity, when
opening documents created outside of inkscape, do we insert the same
attributes? or at least on a filter modification within inkscape?
