Submission formats


Fill in ${VERSION} (e.g. 0.39), ${NODOT_VERSION} (e.g. 039), ${SIGNATURE} (your name or however you usually sign e-mails). Description of changes should be brief: see any ‘Development?link on for examples.

Subject: `Development' submission: Inkscape ${VERSION} released

Submission appended.  Let me know if you'd like any changes to the submission format
(Subject line, submission formatting), as we'll probably use the same template for the next release.
