The Inkscape community is proud to announce the release of Inkscape
0.41, "A Cross-platform Open Source Vector Graphics (SVG) Drawing Tool"
The primary focus of 0.41 has been bug fixing. With over 100 bugs fixed
since the 0.40 release, this significantly strengthened Inkscape on
Windows and for international users. We owe deep thanks to the many
users who have worked patiently with us to report the problems and
validate these fixes. Several serious crashes, memory leaks and
mis-features are now corrected and certain areas are noticeably snappier
thanks to user submitted bug reports.
A couple new features also found their way in. First, the black and
white tracing functionality introduced in 0.40 has been improved to also
allow conversion of color and grayscale images. Second, is the addition
of a new clone tiler facility which creates patterns, tesselations, and
other sorts of geometric tiling arrangements.
User requests and comments also stimulated a number of improvements to
units handling, extensions, the Invert Selection command, layers
selector, icon theming, and several new translations.
A number of large scale changes are planned for the 0.42 release,
including converting the interface to use Gtkmm and the incorporation of
a new Document Object Model (DOM), which will provide the core to build
scripting onto. This should keep us busy for a while! If you'd like to
join in the work, please drop by.
