Possible to export animation frames as SVG?

Troberg
I need to export a lot of files for laser cutting. I've set it up so that I
can animate it so that one frame is one file.

However, animations, as far as I can tell, can only export as PNG, and
that's no use for laser cutting.

Currently, I'm solving it by calling from a batch file and export one page
at the time, but that means over 1200 starts/stops of the program (which
also means the cache is dumped), which is very slow, currently almost 8
hours.

Any suggestions for how to do it faster?

The persistent cache feature is not officially finished,
but it might be possible to set things up for this.

What OS are you on, and would you be able to compile
a dev version?

I'm on Windows for this, haven't tried to compile, but I am a dev, so should
be able to, but not in a week or two, as I'll be travelling.

We should have automatic builds for the PR, but I just
noticed those are not triggered right now. For some
reason CircleCI seems to "forget" the authorization to
access github. I'll have a look. Once that's running
again it should be possible to just download the Windows
build (totally untested so far, but if you are with
spending a couple of minutes on that would be great to
see if it's working on Windows).

ciao,
