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.

Important changes

The icon preview dialog now correctly shows the page background (Bug #1537497). As a side effect, custom UI icons SVG files need updating to have their background color alpha channel set to 0 so that they display correctly (see Bug #1661989).
