I have been extensively using LaTeX for technical documentation. To make drawings I often use inkscape and then convert them to .pdf. I was wondering, are there any plan in LaTeX community to natively support the SVG format?
I saw there is a possibility to include the SVG package. I did not try it but as I understood from manual it does exactly the same thing as I do: it calls inkscape, converts svg->pdf and includes the resulting image via pdflatex. I don't see any added value in that, as this only makes the document compilation longer and more complex.
