What you’ll find inside Inkscape version 1.2

Filed under
Software

Our annual Spring release has left the building! From offering multiple pages to making tiling super easy and fun, Inkscape 1.2 has something for everyone seeking to Draw Freely.

What’s not making a comeback are many of the bugs that were fixed thanks to everyone who tested the earlier versions and shared their feedback with the Inkscape teams. This helps us to improve the program between alpha, beta and final releases.

While we cannot possibly mention everything inside version 1.2 in an article, we suggest a test drive of the actual software. Before you download it – or as it’s downloading – we suggest checking out our Inkscape 1.2 video specially prepared to demonstrate some of the most popular new features and updates.

  • Inkscape 1.2 is Now Available to Download - OMG! Ubuntu!

    A major update to open source drawing app Inkscape is now available to download for Linux, Windows, and macOS.

    Inkscape 1.2 is packed with a variety of new features that designers, artists, and other illustrative innovators are sure to love. Plus, this update features a swathe of stability improvements, performance enhancements, and bug fixes.

    For some, the headline feature addition in Inkscape 1.2 is support for multiple page documents. Fulfilling this long-standing request from the client’s enthusiastic fanbase means users can now create new standard or custom-size pages within the same document. A brand-new page tool is included to make managing the multi-doc powers a little easier.

Inkscape adds multi-page support with v1.2 update

  • Inkscape adds multi-page support with v1.2 update

    Open-source vector drawing package Inkscape has resolved at least one user pain point with v1.2 – multiple-page documents.

    "This is one of the features that Inkscapers have been clamoring for over the past few years," the team acknowledged, and the functionality works well. It's possible to create standard or custom-sized pages in the same document, give them names, arrange them, and export them.

    Other updates include improvements to the color palette and a merged Layers and Object dialog. A new Live Path Effect (or, as the Inkscape team humorously put it, "Tiled Clones dialog on steroids") permits a vast array of tiling types when copying large numbers of object and there are new modes of on-canvas snapping to ease alignment.

Android Leftovers

IPFire 2.27 - Core Update 169 is available for testing

The next Core Update - one of the biggest in size we have ever put together - is available for testing. It introduces the support of two-factor authentication (2FA) for OpenVPN clients, updates several core parts of the system, provides mitigations for another two types of CPU side-channel attacks, as well as package updates, bug fixes and other security improvements. For OpenVPN clients, the setup of two-factor authentication based on time-based one-time password (TOTP) is now supported. It can either be enforced on a per-client basis, preserving the flexibility of mixing end-user devices with machine clients, where no manual interaction is feasible during OpenVPN connection establishment.

9 Top Free and Open Source Elixir Web Frameworks

One of the types of software that’s important for a web developer is the web framework. A framework “is a code library that makes a developer’s life easier when building reliable, scalable, and maintainable web applications” by providing reusable code or extensions for common operations. By saving development time, developers can concentrate on application logic rather than mundane elements. A web framework offers the developer a choice about how to solve a specific problem. By using a framework, a developer lets the framework control portions of their application. While it’s perfectly possible to code a web application without using a framework, it’s more practical to use one. Read more
