gpx2svg 0.1.5 released

Quite some time has passed since the last release of gpx2svg, the program to convert GPX to SVG, but thanks to Emiel Brommer, there's a new release now.

The problem was that some GPS devices create a lot of segments that don't overlap by their first and last point. Thus, the default segment combining algorithm of gpx2svg is not able to detect them and the output is scattered in a lot of paths.

The new -j command line switch turns off the default combining and creates one big segment with all data in it, in the (chronological) order given by the GPX file. This, of course, will only produce a meaningful result if the order is correct, but in these cases, we do get one.

Thanks again to Emiel for supplying the initial patch! Have a lot of fun with gpx2svg!
