Greeting to the community,
After 9 months of intensive development, the Inkscape Community is proud to announce that Inkscape 0.48 is out. Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.
This version of the SVG-based vector graphics editor brings improved performance and tons of new features, some of which are as follows: Spray Tool, enhanced Text Tool controls (super/subscripts, kerning, spacing, rotation and more), multi-path node editing, greater snapping abilities, custom "auto" swatches, LaTeX PDF export, new and improved extensions, better CMYK & ICC support, and much more. Additionally, it would be wrong to not mention the numerous bug fixes as well. Check out the full release notes for more information about what has changed, enjoy the screenshots, or just jump right to downloading your package for Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.
