Current Status

Available download
Inkscape.0.48.2
Requirements
XQuartz >= 2.5.1
Mac OS X >= 10.5.8 (compiled as 32bit app on Mac OS X 10.5.8)
Python 2.6 (32bit) (provided by OS X) for extensions
Known issues
clipboard conflict with XQuartz (pastes as bitmap)
language detection is faulty
missing: system fonts (fontconfig)
missing: UniConvertor support
missing: ps2pdf for Postscript input
partial: spellchecker limited to English dictionary
crash on second import from OpenClipArt in same session
crash on launch if incompatible color profiles are present (lcms1, encoding)
Known issues on specific versions of OS X
Leopard: requires XQuartz >= 2.5.1
Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks: extensions don't work out-of-the-box
Mavericks: XQuartz conflict with multi-monitor setups
Scripts & Resources in 'packaging/macosx'
no support for Mac OS X >= 10.6 (can't be used as is to create new packages)
written for GTK+/X11 based application
missing: DMG with precompiled python packages (was hosted on modevia)
no updates for changes in upstream packages
no updates for known bugs (extensions, locale detection, fonts)
no options to support GTK+/Quartz

Roadmap

Provide packages built with GTK+/Quartz
no requirement for X11/XQuartz
OS integration (menubar, shortcuts, dock menu, proxy icon)
re-enable system fonts
improve language detection
improve CLI usage
Extensions
use Python 2.7 (64bit) (provided by OS X)
include ps2pdf, UniConvertor
include dbus (without launchd support) (0.91)
offer packages (installer) for additional extensions and required dependencies
User data (OS X guidelines <-> XDG spec)
inkscape profile folder in "$HOME/Library/Application Support/"
caches in "$HOME/Library/Caches"

Future

Packages based on GTK3/Quartz
OS X integration based on native GTK3 features
support for HiDPI resolutions
multi-threading (OpenMP support in future version of clang)

Recent efforts

2012: Gellule Xg

  • Based on trunk (lp:inkscape r11619)
  • dependencies via MacPorts
  • ige-mac-integration for osx menubar
  • ige-mac-bundler for osx app
  • osx-build.sh updated, osx-app.sh obsolete, osx-dmg.sh new
Status
experimental, abandoned
+
simplified bundle structure
easier bundling (script is developed & maintained upstream)
-
extensions not working in app bundle
themeing not yet included
