Subject Re: Solve SVG visualization without cairo and librsvg
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2011 10:27:17 GMT
	Hi *,

to keep all of you up to date, I'm making good progress with the planned 
svg replacement with an own interpreter. Due to the IP clearance process 
I have now prepared an early patch to disable the current svg stuff to 
get forward. It removes a bunch of gpl/lgpl'ed libs which need to go 

Need to go here means: No longer in our own repro, but on systems where 
possible available as system libraries. Thus, this patch removes the 
libraries from our repository/from ext_sources to no longer need them 
there, but actively touches just that current svg functionality.

The libraries are:
librsvg, libcroco, libgsf, gdk-pixbuf, glib, gettext and pango.

I'll keep you up to date with the current svg replacement I am working 
on. I can import things like tiger and tux, but also all examples of the 
SVG spec 1.1, thus svg gradients and text on curve as well (no, please 
do not discuss about the usefulness of this here, it's in there and 
needs to be supported :-)). It should be a matter of weeks to a first 
usable, comittable version...
