Really good issue! We plan adding trace module in future. But it seems this will be a subject for special release.

UPDATE: I have reviewed potrace library source code and I think we can adding this functionality in 0.9.1 release.

Hi,

Actually the scalar pixmap vectorization is another type of software. So I suppose i will be a good idea to provide such program as an addition to sK1 bundle or maybe uniconvertor bundle. Exactly like in Corel Draw or Adobe CS bundles.

I have an algorithm idea. What if we will use the flooding fill algorithm for finding of primitives/curves base points.

if this does get added can there be a batch convert -

other programs its very hard to do a batch convert - if there could be a way to select many files - and changed them all the same way - darkness - edging - what ever that would be very good
