Inkscape on leap 15.5

The current version of inkscape in leap 15.5 is from 2020, so 3 years old. I am not able to find a good repro for installation and using now the AppImage from the inkscape webpage. Two questions

a)
How can it be triggered to put the latest version of an app into the official repros? (similar issue with FreeCAD)

b)
Does someone know a repro with inksacpe 1.3.2 for leap 15.5?

Actual Inkscape cannot be build for Leap as several deps are not fullfilled.

you see me surprised… is that the fault from inkscape or suse? Inkscape is not really only a small application, I would consider it as the most important svg tool for Linux. Do you believe the situation will stay like this? What deps are not being fulfilled for example?

As Leap is a stable distribution which does not provide the latest package versions, it is not uncommon that you can’t build a specific package. This is the same for all stable linux distributions. If you want the latest and greatest…chose a rolling distribution like Tumbleweed.

Leap will stay on the Version delivered by the OSS Repo.

That is the policy of openSUSE.

If you want a newer Version, build it by your own or search on the OBS.
But as you can see, there is a problem for Leap.

@kallesuse:

Here on Leap 15.5 – I’ve now changed the repository for Inkscape from the Main openSUSE Leap 15.5 repository to the Graphics Project repository – <https://software.opensuse.org/download/package?package=inkscape&project=graphics>

The upgrade resulted in the following additional packages being installed –

lib2geom1_3_0
libpython3_11-1_0
python311
python311-base
python311-curses
python311-dbm
python311-gobject
