Inkscape launches version 1.3 with a focus on organizing work efficiently


With version 1.3 of Inkscape, you’ll find improved performance, several new features, and a solid set of improvements to a few existing ones.

This version is squarely focused on helping users get organized and work more efficiently with our free and open source vector-editing software.

In fact, our project developers, most of them volunteer contributors from around the world, have been working hard behind the scenes on the code base to improve the performance of the software. Some of the heavy rendering tasks have been separated internally, to help with performance when zooming, panning and transforming objects. By default, Inkscape will now leverage the power of all your computer's cores when it renders objects, but you can also choose to limit its powers in the preferences.

As always, there are a few new features in this release, which have been tested by users during the beta release.
Many thanks to everyone who lent a hand with this important step in the process!

Among our favorites are several that focus on helping you get things organized and work more efficiently when using Inkscape.

Check out the full release overview on the Inkscape website.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
