I'm sure there is more, I think they reviewed the most known.
They also have a review about photo editing software.

Maybe this is the reason why PL has not been listed, because it is both. So they don't know where to publish. ;)

Thanks.

The Inkscape section of the review article says:
Quote
Another significant new feature for anyone creating SVG for web is the switch from 90dpi to 96dpi to match the CSS standard.

Can anyone explain what that means and where did 90dpi come from?  Surely vector graphic elements should scale when displayed without any regard to DPI, so presumably the sentence relates to bitmap images within an SVG file.

I don't fully understand it myself, but it seems to be something to do with the difference between absolute units and user units. This discussion on Stack Overflow may shed some light, or perhaps simply add to the confusion!

Well, you can't say I didn't warn you! ;D

If memory serves, the 90 DPI stuff had to do with printing and scaling.
