We are quickly approaching the long-awaited 1.0 release of Inkscape, and
to allow easier testing of the progress we've made with it, we just
released a 1.0-beta2 version!
You can get the release at https://inkscape.org/release/inkscape-1.0beta2/
in the form of
source tarball to compile, AppImage for Linux, and .dmg for macOS (windows soon).
The most visible changes should be :
- MacOS Catalina users should be able to manipulate files
- More responsive interface (faster rendering)
- Improved text rendering
All testers are encouraged to test this version and report bugs at inkscape.org/report
The release date for 1.0 is not set in stone yet, but if we don't get major bug
reports I expect a release around the end of December.
== Translators ==
Thanks for your work! Strings have been frozen for a while, and it's not too late to
submit translations until release date.
== Developers ==
We have now branched the code repo. The new branch 1.0.x now only welcomes bugfixes,
translations and easy-to-review changes; while features, performance, code improvements,
or anything that was left waiting in prevision of 1.1 are free to go to the master
== All contributors ==
All Inkscape contributors (be it with development, translation, Vectors (outreach),
documentation, UX research, etc) are encouraged to vote in the About Screen contest before
