New release of Inkscape - Free Art Software

Inkscape has had a significant upgrade. The organisation is rather modest and describes this as version 0.91 (where 1.0 is theoretically the first complete release). The new version is faster and has more features.

You can read about the new features and download the programme here www.inkscape.org. Inkscape is a vector grahics package (similar to Adobe Illustrator). It is often thought that only cartoons and commercial art can be produced with this type of programme - not that that makes it uninteresting - but the gallery www.inkscape.org/en/community/gallery/ shows some very attractive images and more can be found on the web.
