I can confirm with Version:
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-02-08 18:15:21 UTC
Seems the old SVG implementation code found in 3.6.7 did support blur.
Comment 3 Tomaz Vajngerl 2016-02-08 21:58:26 UTC
We don't support blur in the drawing layer or vcl (except for filter blur on bitmap which is way to slow for anything serious), so it needs to be added to drawing layer first. If we did support blur in 3.6.7 then only because we used an external library to render to a bitmap.
Comment 4 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-02-09 13:18:08 UTC
Yep Armin mentioned this "It replaces the former SVG import greatly improving user experience and removing dependencies of six external libraries, also benefiting startup (a little bit)."' -

Maybe we could re-implement the one library which provided the blur support.

@Armin: Any thoughts?

still repro in 6.1 beta 2
Comment 7 Armin Le Grand 2018-07-04 10:31:00 UTC
As tomaz says in comment 3 - we could add this to SVGIO import, but that's only a small part - will be needed at Model level, in DrawingLayer, on all output paths (print/PDF, ...) and - of course 0 in file format.
