Submission + - Inkscape 0.48 is out!

ScislaC writes: After 9 months of intensive development, Inkscape 0.48 is out. This version of the SVG-based vector graphics editor brings improved performance and tons of new features, some of which are as follows: Spray Tool, enhanced Text Tool controls (super/subscripts, kerning, spacing, rotation and more), multi-path node editing, greater snapping abilities, custom "auto" swatches, LaTeX PDF export, new and improved extensions, better CMYK & ICC support, and much more. Additionally, it would be wrong to not mention the numerous bug fixes as well.

I'm asking this seriously. If you took said fetus out of the woman at the 9 week stage, what are the chances it would survive w/o assistance?

You also bring up "immorality"... morality in general is a very subjective thing and I personally prefer ethics.

Plain and simple, if it would kill my wife to have a baby and she got pregnant (and she would otherwise be able to live a semi-normal healthy lifespan), my guess is that I would want to keep my wife alive... however, I would still leave the decision up to her.

Have you noticed the past few releases of Illustrator adding features that Inkscape has had for years? We must be doing something right... anyway, I'm not looking to compare as it's obvious that you're here to bitch about Inkscape and not contribute anything positive.

We have base support for creating SVG Fonts even at this point... the problem now is actually with the text library (which handles fonts) not supporting SVG Fonts yet... once that's good we should be good to go in that department.

There is an AutoSave feature if you're experiencing frequent crashes. Obviously it's just a workaround, but still. As for the version number, Inkscape's version number has to do with SVG compliance and nothing else. When full SVG 1.2 is supported (if ever) would be the current goal for a 1.0.

You obviously don't know much about Illustrator files. ;) Illustrator files are PDF based, if you save as PDF while retaining the editing capabilities it is no different.

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
