I was working with the beta version of @inkscape today with my students. So much nice stuff in 1.0, especially nice UI fine-tuning. But the most wonderful is that the Mac version is a real mac app! It's good times for FLOSS graphics.

Hey makers!

We know many people use the extension (gcodetools), which we have improved and updated to python3.

We need testers to check everything is still right!

Please go to, so we can help you get started with testing.
