The patched version of Ponyscape 0.4 is here!! Currently, the Windows, 64-bit Linux, Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 packages are available! The Linux package was built on Linux Mint 14, but it should work on most up-to-date distributions. On Windows, download the zip file and extract it using 7zip or winrar and run ponyscape.exe. On Linux, download the deb package and install it by running "sudo dpkg -i <filename>" or by using a GUI package installer of your choice. On Mac OS X, open the dmg package, drag Ponyscape.app to the Applications folder, and launch Ponyscape.app from your Applications folder. For this patch version, I revamped the Linux package so that everything is now installed in a separate directory from Inkscape and you now run "ponyscape" instead of "inkscape" from a terminal. Additionally I revamped the Mac OS package so that it's now called Ponyscape.app (and I tweaked it a bit so it runs smoother).
You can get the binary packages here (md5's are provided for checksumming):
Mac OS X 10.8 (x11): [link]
Mac OS X 10.8 (non x11): [link]
Mac OS X 10.7 (non x11): [link]
Mac OS X 10.6 (non x11): [link]
Alternatively, you can download the entire source code and compile from scratch. I can confirm that compiling works on Windows and Linux, the Mac OS build requires some tweaking but should work if you replace the files in /packaging/macosx with the files found here: [link]
. Compilation instructions can be found on Inkscape's wiki ( [link] ).
Here's what's included in this patched release:
Fixed swatch button in Fill & Stroke Dialog
Increased size of the swatch bar at the bottom

Fixed "Edit path on canvas" in Path-Effects dialog (patch by ~tgolyi

Improved swatch efficiency!!
