Sketch 0.6.4 - A vector drawing program
Sketch is a vector drawing program for Linux and other unices. It's intended to be a flexible and powerful tool for illustrations, diagrams and other purposes.
Despite the low version number, it already has advanced features like gradients, text along a path and clip masks and is fully scriptable due to its implementation in a combination of Python and C.
This is mainly a bug-fix release.
Summary of the Changes since 0.6.3:
* Bug fixes, most notably for the EPS-related bug in Sketch's PostScript prolog.
* Updated Spanish translations
* More color icons
* The mkfontdb.py script can also generate Fontmap files now
Please also note that Sketch has moved to a new location:
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 possible)
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, SVG and Adobe Illustrator files
