Software Update: Inkscape 0.92.5 / 1.0 RC

Spread the love

Version 0.92.5 of Inkscape has been released. This open source and cross platform program is for editing bewerken vector graphics. It shares similarities with programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Freehand and Xara X, but the big difference is that Inkscape works with Scalable Vector Graphics, an open standard developed by the W3C. The implementation of SVG is, however, incomplete. Furthermore, version 1.0, which has been in development for over a year, has arrived at the first release candidate. The release notes for both releases can be found below.

Inkscape 0.92.5 released and Testers needed for Inkscape 1.0 Release Candidate
Inkscape 0.92.5

While we are working to release Inkscape 1.0 in the very near future, we have addressed some bugs in the stable 0.92 series. Most notably, an issue for Windows 10 users that prevented Inkscape from discovering fonts that have not been installed system-wide has now been fixed. Inkscape extensions written in Python will now also run with Python 3, while compatibility with the (deprecated) Python 2 is maintained.

Read all about the changes in the latest stable Inkscape version and download it from our website.
