New Features and Improvements

  • Inkview was considerably improved and got some new features
  • Support folders as input (will load all SVG files from the specified folder)
    The `-r` or `--recursive` option will even allow to search subfolders recursively.
  • Implement `-t` or `--timer` option which allows to set a time after which the next file will be automatically loaded.
  • Add `-s` or `--scale` option to set a factor by which to scale the displayed image.
  • Add `-f` or `--fullscreen` option to launch Inkview in fullscreen mode
  • Many smaller fixes and improvements
  • Shortcuts
  • Allow to use "Super", "Hyper" and "Meta" modifier keys
  • Improve shortcut handling code. This should fix a lot of issues and allow to use a lot of shortcuts which were inaccessible before, especially on non-English keyboard layouts.
  • Customisable share folder - All files in share can be over-ridden by placing files in the user's `~/.config/inkscape` folder. These include keyboard files (no change) to user interface files (glade files) and menu xml files to configure the menus, toolbars and interfaces of Inkscape (very raw themeing support).
  • Inkscape is starting to use glade for it's dialogs so they can be reconfigured by users. Only one is currently supported.
