Name        : xfig

Release     : 7.fc27
URL         : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xfig
Summary     : An X Window System tool for drawing basic vector graphics
Description :
Xfig is an X Window System tool for creating basic vector graphics,
including bezier curves, lines, rulers and more.  The resulting
graphics can be saved, printed on PostScript printers or converted to
a variety of other formats (e.g., X11 bitmaps, Encapsulated
PostScript, LaTeX).

You should install xfig if you need a simple program to create vector
graphics.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

- Fix font issues (rhbz#1523624) : - The new urw fonts are completely unusuable
as X11 core fonts, stop using them for now (see bug rhbz#1551219) - Add a patch
to deal with some fonts being scalable, while others are not - Add a patch to
use the fallback fonts for non-scalable fonts too, so that we at least show
something somewhat reasonable for Bookman, New Century Schoolbook and Palatino -
This means that display of Zapf Chancery and Zapf Dingbats currently falls back
to the "fixed" font, which is completely wrong for Dingbat - Remove obsolete
icon-cache and desktop-database scriptlets - Add a patch from Debian fixing some
issues with arrows
