Vector drawing applications

Sodipodi is a general purpose vector drawing application which uses a subset of W3C SVG (full compliance is currently in the works) as its file format. Drawing tools include rectangles, ellipses, freehand drawing, text objects, imported bitmaps, fills, and outlines. The user interface is similar drawing programs. There are rectangles, ellipses, text items, bitmap images and freehand curves. Additionally, both vector and bitmap objects can have alpha transparency and can be arbitrarily transformed. Sodipodi supports multiple opened files and multiple views per file and prints and exports to png bitmaps.
