[News] Introduction to 2 Graphics and Sound Applications: Xara, Jokosher

Hash: SHA1

Xara LX and the leading, bleeding edge of free software graphics

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest vector graphics package for GNU/Linux is a Linux port of a 
| proprietary Windows application called “Xara Xtreme”, which is in the process 
| of being converted to a GPL license. There are a number of sharp broken edges 
| along this path, including non-free library dependencies that need to be 
| free-licensed or replaced with free versions, and support for free graphics 
| standards like SVG in order to interoperate with other packages. As a result, 
| you won’t find this new application, called “Xara LX” in the main 
| distributions yet. In Debian, it is filed under “non-free” in the 
| unstable “Sid” distribution. However, this is an opportunity to get a sneak 
| preview of what’s coming.

Xara Xtreme for Linux, a powerful graphics program

,----[ Quote ]
| The source code was made available open-source in early 2006, and is being 
| ported to Linux. The downloadable  version of Xara Xtreme for Linux  is 
| working straight away on most Linux machines, but  the development is 
| continuing daily. At the moment  two versions are available for download. The 
| first is the recommended download because it will normally be the most 
| stable. The second is the very latest, but untested version, built and 
| published automatically.      

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
