Sketch 0.5.4 - A vector drawing program

Sketch is a vector drawing program for Linux and possibly other unices.
Its user interface is similar to the interfaces typically found in drawing
programs for MS Windows, i.e direct manipulation to move and transform
objects, the notion of a currently selected object, etc.

Sketch is implemented almost completely in python, with the rest written
in C for performance reasons. Sketch is still under development.

Changes since version 0.5.3:

Support for user supplied scripts, new import filters for WMF and CMX
files, insert nodes and cut curves at specific positions, path-text can
start anywhere on the path and various improvements in the user


Sketch is released under GNU Library General Public License.


        o Drawing primitives:

                o Rectangles
                o Ellipses
                o Bezier curves
                o Bitmap images: JPEG, GIF,...
                  (all types the python Imaging Library can read)
                o Encapsulated postscript
                o Text

        o All objects, including images and text, can be rotated,
          scaled, sheared, etc. (all affine transformations are

        o Gradient fills

        o Special Effects and Features:

                o Use rectangles, ellipses and bezier objects as guides

                o Blend Groups: Automatically updated interpolations of
                  arbitrary objects

                o Text can be converted to bezier objects.

                o Text along Path

        o Exports Encapsulated PostScript and Adobe Illustrator files

        o Imports XFig, Adobe Illustrator, Corel CMX and WMF files
