Better SVG support?

Post by raducoc » Mon Jul 30, 2007 7:04 pm

SVG is a standard into the vector graphics market who, day by day is used more and more. Opera and Firefox have native support for this kind of files, but I cant find a good free and standalone SVG viewer. So, I think will be very handly to integrate a more advanced SVG library into XnView, to suport real vector graphics. A good and open source SVG library is AGG: http://antigrain.com/svg/index.html. I hope this can be implemented into XnView. Also please add support for SVGZ files (ones produced by Inkscape).

I hope this can be implemented into XnView soon .... me too !

Vector graphics photo files (viewer and generator) are very interesting for the near futur (for large sizes and posters with few Mega Bytes ).

Me too please I support, I cannot get that shareware plugin rubbish to work on my Xnview, plus the method of having it as a plugin I don't like. Native support of SVG and maybe some other cad formats via an open source library like the one brought up above would be GREAT :)

please Pierre, seriously consider implementing for next release
