Well, then that’s me to blame. I somewhat lost interest in xaralx when
the CDraw release became unlikely, and did not follow further
development. There also were no reqeusts by users asking for new
releases, so I did not do that either. Note that the website still lists
1692 as the recommended version.

What are the relevant changes since 1692? Are they a notable improvement
over the old version? 

BTW, to those thinking about a Cairo port: I’d very much welcome that
and once it is at least somewhat usable I’ll upload it to Debian (and
thus Ubuntu) to give it the attention and user testing it deserves. (I
hope that this increases the motivation a bit).
