This exciting new feature uses the Potrace library (the same one used by Inkscape), to generate Grease pencil strokes from a traced image. This operator works right in the viewport on an imported image, immediately bridging the world of rasterized images to the versatility of GP.
Here is Pablo Vasquez demonstrating this new feature on the official Blender Youtube Chanel.
