Inkscape 0.38

The focus of this release has been our Bug Hunt. Of the 57 open bug reports at the time of our last release, only 12 remain; of the 107 bugs submitted during this bughunt, all but 17 are now closed; the ratio of open to total bugs went down from 33% to 10%. Of the 285 bugs reported since the inception of the project, fewer than 30 remain. In total, over 135 bug reports were closed during the Bug Hunt. Countless other bugs were discovered by the developers and exterminated on the spot without ever going into the tracker. We are especially appreciative of the many users who have helped us identify the various bugs and verify the solutions.

Aside from bugfixes, a good deal of new features and usability enhancements went into this release:

  • Text and fonts: full kerning and spacing support, better installed
 font detection, better alternate font matching, better usability
  • Path operations: new commands to cut paths, less distortions, better
 usability
  • Gradients: full support for multi-stop gradients, bugfixes
  • Shape tools: polygons, dramatically better usability with the top
 panel, bugfixes
  • Libinkjar: a library for compound document support of packaged SVG and
 PNG files
  • Pure usability: canvas autoscrolling, accelerated scrolling, inversion
 for visibility, more intuitive cut-and-paste, per-object selection
 indication, save dialog, new icons
  • Paraphernalia: new and expanded tutorials, clipart, translation
 updates
