Subject: Pending patches for Dia 0.98 ?

Recently there are increasing requests on- and off-list regarding
features already available in the development version of Dia [1].
Usually it is a good sign for the necessity of a new release,
if already implemented features are requested.

Now there are only few (critical) bugs fixed or open for 0.98 [2]
and the number of new features is also quite concise [3], although
one of them was requested since at least 2001. [4]

Maybe you want to extend one of the lists, by working on
some unfinished patches, like:

  * Adding transparency to colors

  * Connections spanning layers can not be serialized

  * Editing test in Antialias mode (with cairo renderer)

Of course there are other areas which would benefit from some
patches, e.g.:

  * better integration of dialogs (layer, diagram tree) with the
    integrated UI mode

  * replacing more deprecated widgets

  * an update to the VDX plug-in ?

  * ...

Please note, that this is *not* a call for features you want to have
implemented [5], but a call for contributions to the next Dia version.

Even if you have no programming skills, there is also help appreciated
for updating documentation, triaging existing bugs [6] or reporting yet
unknown ones [7].
If you never compiled Dia yourself, you might want to give Steffen's Dia
Development (and Testing) Virtual Machine a try [8].
