Inkscape adalah alat untuk membuat vektor grafik desain semacam Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Freehand, atau Xara X. Inkscape bersifat 'Open Source', menggunakan 'Scalable Vector Graphic' (SVG) dan 'Open XML' standar W3C.

Pada 17 Januari 2019, setelah 15 tahun pengembangan, Inkscape meluncurkan versi 1.0 Alpha-nya.

Selamat!

Berikut catatan rilis Inkscape 1.0 Alpha:

  • Theming support
  • Origin in top left corner (optional)
  • Canvas rotation and mirroring
  • Better hidpi screen support
  • Control width of PowerStroke with pressure sensitive graphics tablet
  • Fillet/chamfer LPE and (lossless) Boolean Operation LPE
  • New PNG export options
  • Path operations and deselection of a large number of paths are much faster now
  • Variable fonts (only if compiled with pango library version >= 1.41.1)

Menurut pengembangnya, Inkscape 1.0 Alpha menggunakan versi GTK+ terbaru dan memperbarui Inkscape adalah hasil dari Boston Hackfest.

The user interface has been changed to using a more recent version of GTK+, the widget toolkit that Inkscape uses to draw the user interface on the screen. This new version brings a lot of improvements, especially for users of HiDPI screens. Updating Inkscape for using it has been a large effort that has been anticipated eagerly for a long time, and was a focus of the Boston Hackfest, (Inkscape devs).

Format Inkscape 1.0 Alpha adalah AppImage. Jika butuh format selain AppImage, Inkscape 1.0 Alpha harus dibangun sendiri dari kode sumbernya.
