2019

Version 0.92.4 of Inkscape released. This open source and cross platform program is meant for editing vector graphics . It has 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 incomplete. In addition to 0.92.4, an early test version of Inkscape 1.0 has also been published. More about that version can be found here. The most important improvements for versions 0.92.4 and 1.0 apha are listed below for you.
