I have already sent a request to unsubscribe from inkscape mailing lists. But without result. I get emails from people talking to me about inkscape like I'm a member of the inkscape team (see email below). Which i am not. I don't understand. Is it possible to delete my email from your database please? Thanks a lot. Have a good evening.
For instance i received this email :

I am Rishi Kejriwal, currently a 2nd year student, studying Computer
Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology(IIT), Roorkee,
and I would love to contribute to Inkscape for open source and also the
upcoming GSoC, 2023. I am a full stack developer, and I am well versed
would like to use my existing knowledge and experience to contribute to
I would be grateful if you can share some points how to get started with
contributing to Inkscape.
My name is Yashashvi Mann and I am currently an undergraduate in Delhi
technological University. I am a GSOC 2023 enthusiast. I have knowledge of
Python, HTML, CSS, Java script, Tailwind and React. I am extremely new to
the contribution world and don’t know how to start. If you could guide me
or assign me a task that I can contribute to, I will be very grateful. Hope
to hear from you soon.
A general topic I'm interested in, with many applications, is the
possibility of using OSC or some custom UDP protocol for messages. As such,
all the core application needs to do in its run loop is to check for
pending packets and process any that have arrived (the rest of receiving
could be on another thread).
For example, so that you could use essentially any device with rotary knobs
or buttons to control things like line width or colour of the selected
object or, more generally, anything else.
OSC is a common protocol used by some music software, but I'm interested in
its use beyond music software. You could send messages like e.g.
/currentobject/linewidth/changeby 46 "pt"
to increase the line width by 46 pt
Essentially anywhere there is a numerical value the user could control via
e.g. the toolbar or some slider somewhere, or something that could be
toggled on/off, or stepped through, there is the scope for controlling it
via something tactile like a rotary encoder on a Midi controller, or
anything else. (You could easily have an external program which handles
conversion to/from what an app understands.)
Just my general line of thinking.
My motivation for trying to get along with this idea is devices like the
TourBox which, in absence of a protocol like OSC, is just a box and some
(bloated) software that turns knobs and buttons into keyboard shortcuts to
Inkscape 1.2.2 is now released.
You can download it at:
then, if you want to support Inkscape, donate to the project at:
Inkscape 1.2.2 is a maintenance and bugfix release, which brings you
4 crash fixes, over 25 bug fixes, 5 fixes for extension bugs
and 13 improved user interface translations.
Notably, the OpenClipart import is now available to everyone, regardless
selected packaging format or operating system, spellchecking finally
macOS, performance is improved (in exchange for dithering disabled by
extensions that modify colors can now also modify colors in patterns again,
and for our maker community, we fixed some issues with the measure tool,
the DXF14 export and with hairline strokes.
Thanks to everyone involved in that release!
