but needs developers.
I've wanted an opensource vector drawing program on GNUstep since I
had to switch from Altsys Virtuoso 2 to FreeHand v4.
Opensource is about contributing, btw... asking is sometime nice, since
a developer could have missed a fine idea, but just open sourcing
something is not a guarantee of anything.
As you notice there, most people demand things, few people are ready to
contribute with money and/or time and effort.
Btw, it is amusing that right those features mentioned missing (undo,
save, CMYK) are already present in Graphos, thanks to our advanced
AppKit. It misses perhaps all the rest, but, well, fine.
I also want a vector editor for GNUstep. I resuscitated one and work on
it when I can. i wanted an image viewer to replace XV and
GraphicConverter, I wrote one. I wanted a FTP client, I wrote one (and
am working on new stuff right these evenings). Of course... few time,
many projects means slow progress.
