    Did they already fix macOS performance? It was barely usable in 1.1, don't know how it is now.

    I really like Inkscape and I always install it on my machines, but now I have no Linux machine and use a MacBook from my company to work, so it's a little frustrating that Inkscape struggles so much on macOS.

    * buggy stable release
    * if this is very important, must wait for 1.3.3
    * 30 freezes/crashes [ 5 crashes 1.2.1 ( 1 ) ]
    * expect more point releases

    Not an artist, but do use it now and then when I need a 'simple' icon/symbol for a project. I just downloaded this 1.3.1's appImage which of course works just fine.

    Before there was Sodipodi from which Inkscape arose iirc.. Yeah, time flies. :/

    Nice to see a maintenance release, however, it is not yet "stable" in Gentoo as Inkscape 1.3. seems to require a new boost and boost is a big chunk of a library and a good couple of other projects depend on it. Well, hopefully this will settle, soon, so it can be enjoyed there without too many hassles.
    (Gentoo simply makes you aware of what was the dependency hell for many in the past, it is not nicely covered as in precompiled distributions. :-p Reminds me of poppler-caused-rebuilds, or the recent/ongoing ffmpeg 6 drama, at least if you have vlc installed. So, people, be glad with your binary-distributors, they did all the nasty work for you. ;-) )

    I was using 0.3[something] Inkscape version in a small game studio a long time ago. We also had Corel Draw 9, but I used it only to export my final work fo cdr format. Good stuff.

    While no longer working with a graphics, even minimal skill with Inkscape saves a ton of time looking for a free webapp, which could modify eps file a little.
