On 8 Oct 2015 I listed the LO-5.0.0 Graphics import/export filters. Those filters are made use of every time we import from, or export to, a LO-file (whether it is a Base, Calc, Impress or Writer file). So, 5 years later, what are the current Graphics filters?

LO-6.4 file-conversion filters
(thanks to Mike Kaganski for the last link; he says that the filters began to be documented at v6.3)

The picture on the general change from v5 to v6 is much more complicated for Graphics/Image filters than it is for other filters, because the graphics filters are separated into sets of import / sets of export filters (other LO apps do not do that) + the Graphics/Image filters apply to all LO apps, whereas other filters apply to just one app.

As is normal, some filters have been removed whilst one filter (SVG Draw) has been added.
