    Release Notes: This version adds a new Mac OS X version, as a dmg file, which resolves the Mac off-screen display problem that occurred at a screen resolution of 1024x768.

    •  05 Jan 2004 09:33

      Release Notes: This release adds JPEG, PNG, and GIF support. Users can now choose to convert to SVG with potrace instead of AutoTrace; potrace produces superior black and white SVG results.

      •  06 Nov 2003 14:58

        Release Notes: A bug that occurred when converting in Windows with the "group by color" option selected was fixed.

        •  03 Nov 2003 15:46

          Release Notes: File size was optimized by not using style attributes in the output SVG. Instead, separate fill and stroke attributes are used. The image is reloaded after doing a "group by color" optimization, so now you can see if this optimization results in bad layering of image paths in the resulting SVG.

          •  28 Oct 2003 01:28

            Release Notes: This release adds optimized output options that produce SVG better suited for rendering in the Sodipodi SVG editor and the Mozilla Web browser. A bug related to the result file being lost when the output file setting was changed has been fixed.
