Dia Portable 0.97.3 Git Development Test 1

Application: Dia
Category: Graphics & Pictures
Description/Features: Dia is roughly inspired by the commercial Windows program 'Visio', though more geared towards informal diagrams for casual use. It can be used to draw many different kinds of diagrams. It currently has special objects to help draw entity relationship diagrams, UML diagrams, flowcharts, network diagrams, and many other diagrams. It is also possible to add support for new shapes by writing simple XML files, using a subset of SVG to draw the shape.
It can load and save diagrams to a custom XML format, can export diagrams to a number of formats, including EPS, SVG, XFIG, WMF and PNG, and can print diagrams (including ones that span multiple pages). (from the homepage)
License: GPL 2, or later
Language: Multilingual
System Requirements: 7, 8, 10 & WINE

Warning: This package is based on a GIT version of Dia. New maintainers picked up development and changed build system. I've created an issue on Gitlab to help development.

Any Difference from Official Version

There is an official version of Dia in the PA Suite.

What are the differences?

post 0.97.3 git version

It's a new git build after the official 0.97.3 version.
It has all fixes from 0.97.3:

Dia 0.97.3 includes the following changes compared to Dia 0.97.2:

* Fix double free with some SVG rendering (regression from Dia 0.97.2)
* Fixes to cope better with updated versions of Dia's dependencies:
- don't crash at start-up with ABI breaking GLib 2-36
- don't assert in cairo 1.12 with invalid arc parameters
- avoid kerning problems (character overlap) for all Pango versions
- fix image files to be loadable by libpng16
* Backport fixes for some seldom crashes and other annoyances, see:
* Update translations for Brazilian Portuguese, German, Hungarian,
Polish, Romanian, Serbian and Slovenian

Furthermore the new maintainers changed the build system to meson now. If everything works, we'll hopefully see a Dia 0.97.4 soon.
