thanks for the feedback, I was wondering if some of the features I was
reading about were actually going to be included as there wasn't any
sign of them in the devel version of Inkscape. I will refine my ToDo
list based on your comments and then send it back in to the group.

This is perfectly fine. We reused released notes a lot during 1st
stage of work on the manual :)

But make the snapping options toolbar section short there. It's better

I can add this information, but first we need to be sure that this
will go to 0.47. It looks like this is a broken feature due to some
bugs in a third party library (Cairo).

Before you do this, we need to revert a cosmetic change in UI :)

Not all of the ones mentioned in release notes will be in 0.47.

SVG Filters should be separate from Extensions

Nothing has changed there for 0.47. The new dialog won't be released this time.

Didi we have any changes there? IIRC even the Win32 bug wasn't fixed.

Working with files, in my opinion
Thank you very much for your work!
