An update for Inkscape has been release fixing over 60 bugs. This isn’t the major release everyone seems to be waiting for (which will be o.91) but seeing bugs being actively fixed and reading about all the development on the upcoming release gives a sense of reassurance to Inkscape users. Being just about the only free Vector program still going means a lot of people depend on this!
You can download the new version of the program for Windows, Linux and OSX direct from their website here: http://www.inkscape.org/en/
