Inkscape Announces 0.46 Release :: http://www.inkscape.org :: Draw Freely.

The Inkscape community today is announcing the release of the newest version of its open source vector graphics editor. Inkscape 0.46 is a major update that introduces native PDF support. The implementation of PDF support in Inkscape provides an easy, open source solution to editing PDF documents.

Tons of new features and performance improvements are included in this release. Dialogs now have the ability to be docked to the editing window. Gradients can be edited completely on-canvas. The new Paint Bucket Tool fills bounded areas with color. A new 3D Box tool helps create perspective-correct drawings. A new Tweak tool provides an intuitive method for editing paths and painting objects. The new Live Path Effects feature can create "brushes" and various organic effects on paths. Improvements to color management include support for color spaces other than sRGB. Most SVG filters are now implemented, and a new powerful UI is provided for editing filter stacks.

About Inkscape
Inkscape is an open source drawing tool that uses the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) scalable vector graphics format (SVG). Some supported SVG features include basic shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, and grouping. In addition, Inkscape supports Creative Commons' metadata, node-editing, layers, complex path operations, text-on-path, text-in-shape, and SVG XML editing. It can also import EPS, PostScript, and most bitmap formats, and exports PNG, PS, PDF and various vector formats. Inkscape's main motivation is to provide the Open Source community with a fully W3C compliant XML, SVG, and CSS2 drawing tool. Additional work includes conversion of the codebase from C/Gtk to C++/Gtkmm, emphasizing a lightweight core with powerful features added through an extension mechanism, and maintaining a friendly, open, community-oriented development process.

Quick question --
Is it necessary to uninstall whatever older version one might have, before installing the new v 0.46?

You guys rock! :D

Inkscape keeps getting better and better with each release.

I have a question though, is there (or will there be) a preset to keep the alpha at 255 when working on a new project/document? I've exported to bitmap before and had transparency in the background because my alpha value was at 0.

Also, when my funds increase I will donate because Inkscape is worthy of it.

Please avoid posting new questions in this topic. Start a new topic instead.

I think it might be. But if you want both versions, download the zipped-archived version instead which doesn't have an installer. You can extract it to any location you like.
