Release highlights

Definitely not released yet.

Inkscape 1.0.1 is a stability and bugfix release.

TODO: Collect from the Inkscape 1.0.1 Milestone on gitlab:

The most notable improvements are:

  • Fill in

Bug fixes


  • AppImage:
    • now comes with Python 3.8 (Commit)
  • Snap:
    • now uses the system's font cache and thus finds all installed fonts (Commit)
    • can now make use of extensions with custom user interfaces (e.g. InkStitch) (Commit)
    • spell checker changed to aspell (erroneously)

General User Interface

  • Fill in


  • The zoom correction factor no longer depends on the display unit, so correction works properly for documents that are not in mm (Commit)


  • 3D-box tool:
    • Keyboard shortcuts for changing angles in the 3D-box tool were adjusted to work as documented, even with the Y-axis inverted (Commit)
  • Selector tool:
    • Keyboard shortcuts for rotating objects with Alt also work as documented again with the Y-axis inversion (Commit)
    • Objects no longer seemingly jump or scale up when moving multiple of them with snapping turned on (Commit)
    • Default snap delay was set to 0 so snapping will work more precisely (Commit)
  • Text tool:
    • Line height doesn't change spontaneously when switching tools while having text selected (Commit)

Live Path Effects

  • The Knot LPE allows to switch the direction of self-crossings (Commit)
  • LPE selection dialog looks better now with some desktop themes (Commit)
  • Fill between many: option 'fuse coincident points' has been replaced with good defaults (Commit)


  • Relative paths to linked images no longer break when using an extension (Commit)


  • Changes to filter region handles are now saved to the file (Commit)

Command line

  • the pre-1.0 options --export-[type]=, --file= and --without-gui= now have a fallback and print out a warning (Commit)

For packagers

  • Fill in

Crash fixes

Fix a crash …

  • … when applying Offset LPE to groups (Commit)
  • … when closing Inkscape while the filter editor dialog is open (Commit)
  • … with some cursor themes that do not contain an upward arrow cursor (Commit)

More bug fixes

There were even more issues fixed than those listed above, but these probably only affect a small portion of users, or are relevant for development and packaging only.
