Inkscape has launched version 0.92.4 with increased stability. This
update delivers some notable performance improvements for filter
rendering, saving and moving paths (with a live path effect), and the
Download Inkscape 0.92.4 packages here:
The key improvements in this version will enable Inkscape users to do or
experience the following:
* Align multiple objects as a group relative to a single object
* Write image data to standard output
* Experience extensions working faster within complex documents
* See improved speed when deselecting a path with many nodes
* Ungroup text elements won’t result in changed font size of children
* Able to print and / or print correct paper size with printers
(especially Canon, EPSON, Konica Minolta)
* See improved performance of the measure tool when grids are visible
* See proper opacity of partially transparent embedded bitmap images in
* Able to Shift/Ctrl-click on control handles of shapes without crashing
* Build Inkscape with up-to-date poppler library 0.72.0 – useful for
Mac users building with Homebrew
Translation and documentation updates
The Icelandic and Brazilian Portuguese user interface (UI) translations
have been updated. Inkscape’s Ukranian and Hungarian documentation
translations have also been revised in this version.

Thanks, yes that is the better link.

As of this week, the Inkscape project is shifting to Gitlab for issue
tracking in place of Launchpad.
We've been using Gitlab for our code hosting and other purposes for a
year and a half now, and have found it to be reliable and
convenient. We didn't migrate Issue Tracking until now, so we could
take time to make sure we had a plan:
1. Going forward, new bug reports should be filed only in Gitlab.
2. Launchpad will remain available as a historical archive of our bug
reports. Filing bugs there will remain possible for now, but
3. Bugs in Launchpad that are still reproducible in Inkscape 0.92.4 or
newer can be re-filed on Gitlab and closed on Launchpad.
We are planning efforts to help organize the migration work and keep
track of progress. More info on this will be coming soon.
Eventually, when the necessary bugs have been migrated, bug reporting in
Launchpad will be shut off.
We're enthused about this change, and hope you too will find gitlab a
more user friendly way to report issues, and we'd love your help
triaging and solving Inkscape bugs.
