I just updated the svg edit with a more recent version. Actually, after a lot of testing I found that the current trunk version has fewer bugs and way better performance than v2.5 . As far as clker’s application is concerned, we are much happier with the trunk.
An example is editing auto traced images. There is a significant improvement in the selection performance, a very notable one. You will find a grid control as well and the main menu changed a little bit. The older bug that forced the icons to smaller was fixed as well. IE9 now works without chrome frame plugin. Right click context menu shows copy/paste functions as well.
Things that I hope svg edit will add:
1. Run external plugins: If svg edit gets hosted let’s say at google, and another website loads it just like jquery, there should be a means for loading plugins without resorting to editing the code of svg edit. This can be accomplished by ajax call that adds a <script> tag.
2. Using the default web fonts instead of serif and sans. So I hope that the Arial, courier new and the other set of web fonts are the standard in svg edit instead of sans and serif.
