Subject: [Scribus] Inkscape, vector graphics

Not sure if many here are aware of the new program available for
creating and handling SVG graphics. Inkscape is branching off from
Sodipodi with a clear road map and I believe, a brighter future for a
vectors grapic program for Linux. It already is impressive with the
user interface and, I think, much easier and nicer to use because of
that fact alone.
Peter, of Scribus fame, turned me onto it just recently. I decided
after compiling it, that I should make a real rpm available to other
SuSE 9.0 users. I have created a RPM for SuSE 9.0 and passed it along
to the Inkspace developers to include on their download site. The
src.rpm is there also, so other linux distro users might be able to
alter the spec file enough to use on their systems. SuSE is now putting
all their Gnome programs in /opt/gnome, in an effort to more closely
adhere to the LSB. I don't think Gnome is located in the same location
for other distros.
Anyway, give it a look and see if you don't like the changes as much as
I did. It still gives you all the Sodipodi features, plus a few more
and expect many more after the new year!
