Inkscape 0.92 beta was just released.  Inkscape is a popular open source vector based graphics application that was featured in my free game development tools guide.  From the WIP release notes, the new features include:


  • The new Object dialog allows to select, label, hide and lock any object in the drawing from a dialog that lists them all Spirolive
  • Selection sets make it possible to 'group' objects together regardless of document structure
  • Guides can now be locked to avoid accidental movement
  • Several new path effects have been added, among them Envelope/Perspective, Lattice Deformation, Mirror and Rotate Copies
  • There are several new extensions (e.g. a seamless pattern extension) and a new filter (colorblindness simulation) included in the release, many old extensions have been updated or got new features
  • Many SVG2 and CSS3 properties are now supported for rendering (e.g. paint-order, mix-blend-mode)
  • Spray tool and measure tool received a set of nifty new features
  • Interactive smoothing for lines created with the Pencil tool
  • BSplines (and more) are available for the Pen tool
  • Checkerboard background can be used to more easily see object transparencies
  • Open Type font functionality




This bullet list is nowhere near complete however, check the release notes for all of the new features, including animations of much of the new functionality in action.  Currently this release is only available in source form, to download the 0.92pre2 source package click here.
