I have committed fixes to the whole printing code.
Now PDF, SVG, or EPS outputs are completely vector based with no
bitmaps, so they should work at arbitrary resolution.
Also, the printer resolution has been set to 300 dpi. This controls:
- The resolution of placement of lines, etc
- The number of lines a curve is compressed into.
It does not effect the resolution of fonts or of the lines themselves,
which are rendered at the device resolution.
I think this will be acceptable for all cases. Do you have the
ability to test from svn, or will you have to wait for a release to
