Changes and Enhancements

20952: Increase shape accuracy
Default behaviour is now a hybrid mode where shapes consisting only of horizontal and vertical lines are aligned to the pixel grid to increase the sharpness. All other shapes now have an increased accuracy of 1 decimal place.

We have now deprecated the decimalsToRetainInShapes setting and plan to remove it in a future update. If you are a customer and think we should keep this setting please let us know.

18911: SVG: Only include clip path if required. (white lines appearing)
Feature added. Fixed some issues caused by the difference in how PDF and SVG display sub-pixels (SVG is more aggressive than PDF when clipping sub-pixels).

20684: Unused style classes are output in SVG files
Unused CSS classes are no longer output in SVG files.
