Introducing Vector Graphics and Inkscape
The screenshots and the text of this article refer to Inkscape 0.45 on SUSE 10.1. The official Inkscape road map tells us that the most interesting things in the near future should be PDF import/export and Visio support in version 0.47, followed by the authoring of simple animations in Inkscape 0.48. Version 0.50 should include SVG Mobile support. The plan also includes switching parts of the display engine to Cairo, up to the point where Inkscape can use the hardware-accelerated back end of that library. As you can see, there are a lot of reasons to try Inkscape today and keep an eye on it in the coming months.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
