A Cross-platform Open Source Vector Graphics (SVG) Drawing Tool
The Inkscape project is proud to announce its 0.40 release. This release includes three major new capabilities: Layers, Bitmap tracing, and Text-on-Path. In addition, there are many minor features, a number of usability enhancements, three new tutorials, and hundreds of bug fixes.
Following our last release four months ago, we have focused on intensive development, adding several new dependencies such as a garbage collector and the Gtk 2.4 libraries. Because of this, you may encounter more trouble getting Inkscape installed on Linux than in previous releases. We apologize for this. To help those who run into this issue, we're also providing 'Static Binary' packages that include these libraries with them.
For tons more details, see the Release Notes for 0.39: http://www.inkscape.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ReleaseNotes040
