  1. Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.

    Thank you. Shocked when know that Inkscape is already 0.91 now.

    • Yeah, the previous release was 0.48, the inkscape upstream decided to jump up to 0.91 for this release, with a push to making it version 1.0 in the next few releases.

  2. Ryan, thanks for putting this together — I use Inkscape fairly regularly, though not at a terribly high level.

    I got “jumped in” to it through the OpenShot video editor, and I’d like integrate it into more of my design work.

    The text-tool enhancements are something I’m looking forward to.

    • Glad the builds help!

      I do love that feature in openshot to edit straight in inkscape 🙂

  3. Awesome! Any idea when this is reaching Win users?
