I became interested in Xfig while drawing schematics for my homebrew computer project at coprolite.com in 1996. Xfig combined with GNU/Linux and the GIMP were the only combination of tools I could get to do everything I needed for my fairly complex schematic. I wanted the lines to curve a certain way and I wanted to put information on both sides of the border of the ICs in the schematic. I also needed to export the schematic into graphics format and tweak the presentation. I tried AutoCAD and Visio. AutoCAD didn't allow me to curve the lines correctly. At one point Visio told me that my drawing was too complicated and I should simplify it. I kid you not. That is when my love for Xfig fully blossomed.

Brian V. Smith is the main contact for Xfig and its incorporation of new features written either by himself or others. For information about the authors of XFIG and other project info, see authors.
