DiaVisViewPlugin - Renders dia and vdx files


This has taken the original DiaView and modified it for use with Trac 0.11, and at the same time included support for vdx and compressed files.

It has had very little testing. It has been set up as a separate hack to the original DiaView so as not to break DiaView for Trac < 0.11.

If the width was changed in the macro argument the displayed image would scale, however the source file stayed the same. To overcome this the width is checked using the image library, and if different it is re-rendered. Please see the link below for the image library.
