Version 0.45 | Release Date: 2007-02-04 | Download
  • Gaussian blur is the first SVG filter supported by Inkscape. You can blur any object to any extent - yet it remains vector and fully editable. This gives a huge boost to Inkscape as a creative art tool.
  • Display speed and interactivity: not only does Inkscape render faster, but it can now respond to user input before it finished redrawing the screen, which greatly improves the interactivity of the program.
  • History dialog makes it easy to to review your editing session and jump to any step of it, undoing and redoing multiple actions with one click.
  • Several important tool features are added, notably the new selection mode in Node tool and the adjustable rounded caps in Calligraphic pen.
  • Bitmap tracing works better for multi-color traces, sports a redesigned dialog and several new options.
  • Many new extension effects are added, including Color effects and Pattern along path.
  • The Outline mode has got many fixes and improvements, including a keyboard shortcut.
  • Several new commands in Help menu open various Inkscape-related pages in your default browser, making Inkscape reference information more accessible as you work.
  • Dozens of smaller features are added throughout the program, and hundreds of bugs are fixed.
