Actually, Inscape is a fork of Sodipodi. AFAIK Sodipodi is still being
developed, but Inkscape seems to have surpassed it in quality and speed of
progress lately.

I doubt that you will find LaTeX integration potential of that quality in
Inkscape, alas.

I'm curious, how do you produce a diagram that TeX can process? (I assume
that by the above you mean that you are exporting your drawings into
something that can be inserted directly into LaTeX, versus plain old
EPS that is embedded by reference and inserted at printing time by DVIPS.)
I've never gotten it work, probably because I am not using the right
combination of packages in LaTeX and export format in xfig (there are eight
export formats that appear to be LaTeX-related).
