Known issues

These issues could not be fixed in time for the 1.1.2 release.

  • Extensions: The unit conversions for circles and rectangles is incorrect, which leads to displaced elements for some extensions (extensions#437, extensions#438). Workaround: Convert circles and rectangles to paths before calling the extension.
