Connector Tool Improvements for Inkscape

by Arcadie Cracan for Inkscape

The Connector Tool in Inkscape does not allow the user do define specific connector points and also lacks orthogonal routing of connectors. By participating in this project I intend to help implementing the following improvements: adding a GUI for entering connector points and also the involving SVG metadata handling code; extending libavoid functionality to permit orthogonal routing and making it available to Inkscape; adding a feature similar to Knot LPE for connectors (mark crossings).
