Whiteboard

2008-03-12 bryce: Spec looks good.

2008-06-03 bryce: Just waiting on a volunteer to take ownership of this spec. If you wish to take ownership of this, just report here in the whiteboard and get in contact with prokoudine.

Binnette is currently working on it.

Yes, thank you Jazzynico ! I made some gtkmm source code but I need somebody like a tutor to help me with Inkscape source code. Is there any volunteer ?
For example, I need to render a preview of an SVG file in the NewFromTemplate Dialog, and i don't know how to do so.

Ok, I'll help you and review your code.
I've linked Bug #171342 (New from MRU template button). It's not in the specs but could be interesting to implement too.
Another bug we could try to get rid of is Bug #503712 (Personal default template not used).

My work on this bleuprint is currently paused. But I will work on it in April.

The GSoC 2013 project "New from templates dialog" by Jan Darowski (Slagvi) was merged into trunk in r12476 (static templates) and r12570 (procedural templates), and is included in latest stable release 0.91. Further enhancements for the new dialog and the procedural templates feature should be handled separately.
