[Fwd: Announcing new project]

Bryce Harrington-3
In honor of our recent release, I thought some of you might be
interested in seeing the email that initiated this project...

Subject: [Sodipodi-list] Announcing new project


Nathan, mental, Ted and myself have decided to embark on our own
direction with the Sodipodi codebase.  We have attempted to do this as
part of the Sodipodi project, but we believe we need to try out a new
project structure to have the freedom to be able to explore some
approaches radically different from Sodipodi.

We have recently reworked the Sodipodi codebase to build with a C++
compiler and renamed it 'Inkscape'.  We have also set up a project on
Sourceforge and established a new website at http://www.inkscape.org.

Our goal is the creation of a fully SVG-compliant 2D graphics editor:
   * Full SVG (plus XML, CSS2) compliance
   * Core written in C++
   * Gtk-based user interface following the standards set out in the
     GNOME HIG
   * Emphasis on a small core plus modular extensions for features (a la
     Mozilla Firebird)
   * Open, community-oriented development processes that welcomes
     experimentation
   * Baseline is the Sodipodi-Hydra codebase
   * Removal of dead code

We are aiming specifically for a general purpose XML/SVG graphics
editor, and as a consequence will emphasize features that tend to fall
outside the Sodipodi target userbase.  We would like to welcome anyone
who'd like to do some experimentation to participate with us.  Subscribe
at http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/inkscape-devel

We also intend to seek use of third-party libraries in preference to
custom code (where reasonable); specifically, we are exploring Cairo
(formerly Xr), libcroco, Pango, the core Gtk widgets, but also other
existing and widespread facilities.  The extension architecture is
partly intended to minimize library dependencies in the core.
