Compilers

Version 1.0 requires a C++11 compiler. Version 1.1 requires a C++17 compiler.

See c++11 and c++17.

Libs

C++ bindings are not included, since their required versions match those of the C counterparts.

Library v 0.92 v 1.0 v 1.1 v 1.2 master
Boehm-GC 7.2 7.2 7.2
Cairo 1.14 1.14 (1.15.4 required for PDF links) 1.16* 1.16 1.16
double-conversion [1]

FreeType 2.9* (Required for Variable fonts) 2.9 2.9
GDL N/A

3.4 Not Used Not Used
Glib 2.28 2.48 2.56 or 2.62* 2.64 2.64
GTK+ 2.24
(3.8)
3.22 3.24* 3.24 3.24
GNU Scientific Library ? ?
HarfBuzz ? ? 2.2* 2.6 2.6
libsigc++ 2.0.12* 2.0.12* 2.0.12*
libSoup (not required) (any)
libpotrace (not required) (any)
libxml 2.6.11* 2.6.11*
libxslt 1.0.15* 1.0.15*
lcms 1.13 2.2 2.2 (2.9*) 2.9* 2.9*
Pango 1.24 1.24 (1.41.1 required for variable fonts) 1.42* 1.44 1.44 (HarfBuzz shaping)
Poppler 0.20.0 0.20.0 0.29 (0.71*) 0.29 (0.71*) 0.71*
gtk-mac-integration
gtk-osx-application-gtk3
N/A 2.0.8 (macOS only)

* Tentative dependency

  • Pango 1.42.2 requires Harfbuzz 1.4.2
  • Pango 1.44.0 requires Glib 2.59.2 and Harfbuzz 2.0. 1.44 exposes hb_font directly.
  • Pango 1.45.1 requires Glib 2.60
  • Pango 1.48.4 has vertical upright marks fix.

Distros

Note: This table is not relevant to (non-fink) MacOS X, where we ship the desired version with Inkscape.

"Inkscape" column is default or distro version / oldest that builds - latest that builds. If no latest is given then that means trunk is expected to build on the given platform.

e.g. for a distro that ships with 0.48 but should support building of trunk you might get:

0.48 / 0.47-

General rules:

  • Support last Debian Stable
  • Support last Ubuntu LTS Ubuntu packages
  • Support last CentOS/Redhat (as best effort).
  • Support last two Fedora releases.
  • Don't break point releases.
