Incscape is a powerful, free and open source design tool. Whether you are an illustrator, designer, web designer or just someone who needs to create images from scratch, Inkscape is for you.
What's new in this update is that Inkscape introduces a new feature called PowerPencil that allows the Pencil tool to be used with a pressure-dependent width. You can also create a closed path and draw line drawings.
The PDF exporter has also been improved and now supports clickable links and metadata, while other notable improvements are support variable font, new templates, grid gradients that work in the browser and new line height settings.
There are also customizable themes, icons and fonts and users can save the current file as a template.
A closer look at what's new in this update you can see on the official website.
