Thanks for this update!
To follow up on volunteering, it would be great to get our FLOSS Manuals
documentation up to date. Right now it reflects mostly 0.46, and needs
some love to bring it up to date.
You don't need to have any profound knowledge - all that we ask is that
you are able to write (the more proficiently the better :) and want to
take the time.
It would probably be good to ask any questions on the Inkscape Docs
maybe sign up on the FM list for questions about the FM platform
). You can also reach me by email or
jabber/gchat at this address - I should be able to answer most questions
or provide some direction.
It would be great if we had a community up-to-date manual by the release

This is where 0.48 as a "release" begins! This email will be a little
redundant for developers, but will let users know what the current plan
is. The next stage (Frost) kicks into gear at the beginning of March in
case you were wondering.
For right now:
*New feature development will focus on wrapping up.
*We will identify "make check" issues (we need to make sure things are
"friendly" for packaging).
*We will run an About Screen contest on DeviantART (which I will
announce within the next 24 hours and post all info to both lists).
*Ensure that the Release Notes are at First Draft stage. This is
primarily a developer task, however, if you are a user and follow
development closely and have something to contribute in this area which
we may have overlooked, such as fixed bugs, changes in functionality,
etc. please contribute.
*Update tutorials and other docs (we could use volunteers). Not joking,
if you are an Inkscape user and have the misconception that the only way
you can contribute is by code, you are missing out on one of the most
important things for our users... documentation. If you have time to
spare and some tips for others that you're willing to share, please let
