Inkscape 0.44.1 Unleashed :: Download Now :: Inkscape.org

The Inkscape community announced the release of Inkscape 0.44.1
today. This bugfix version fixes several weeks of work by the community
in order to fix some crashes on windows, Mac OS X, and other packaging
issues which have come up from our last successfule release, 0.44 which
introduced substantial features like graphical layers, clipping and
masking support, and native PDF export with transparency.

Here is a full list of bug fixes in this version:

     * fix a crash on Windows ("python.exe can't find msvcrt71.dll") by
       providing that dll in the package;
     * fix hang in page size widget * on Mac OS X, removed problems with
     home folder path names
       containing spaces;
     * inkscape now finds libpng include headers on some systems where it
       previously failed to do so
     * several changes to allow compiling on glib-2.4 systems (e.g.
       RHEL4);
     * allow compiling on systems with incomplete boost library headers;
       recognize if boost is too old
     * inkscape now compiles with gcc-4.2.x.  * fixed a bug where stderr
     output from scripts was not shown * fixed a bug affecting the recent
     files menu * resolution information is now saved in exported PNG
     files * fix some ODG export bugs * fix dia import * fix several
     include issues affecting building on Solaris
       (there are still some more problems, at least under Solaris 8,
       and similar ones on OpenBSD)
     * added missing German version of the advanced tutorial and made
       corrections to the calligraphy one; added missing Czech, German,
       and Brazil-Portuguese tutorials to tarball; added missing German
       keytable to tarball
     * applied changes to the German and Spanish translations of Inkscape
       strings
     * interactivity improvements at high zooms * fix for specifying
     CSS colors with percentages * re-enabled old PDF exporter alongside
     the new one * minor fixes to new PDF exporter (a major overhaul is
     still in the
       works)
     * fixup for invalid "s odipodi" namespace which has become
       widespread in Inkscape documents
     * Mac OS X packaging updates * miscellaneous build fixes

About Inkscape

Inkscape is an open source drawing tool that uses the World Wide Web
Consortium's (W3C) scalable vector graphics format (SVG). Some supported
SVG features include basic shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha
blending, transforms, gradients, and grouping. In addition, Inkscape
supports Creative Commons' metadata, node-editing, layers, complex path
operations, text-on-path, text-in-shape, and SVG XML editing. It can
also import EPS, PostScript, and most bitmap formats, and exports PNG,
PS, PDF and various vector formats.

Inkscape's main motivation is to provide the Open Source community
with a fully W3C compliant XML, SVG, and CSS2 drawing tool. Additional
work includes conversion of the codebase from C/Gtk to C++/Gtkmm,
emphasizing a lightweight core with powerful features added through an
extension mechanism, and maintaining a friendly, open, community-oriented
development process.
