Graphics, User Interfaces I had to reread Bulia's email three times. It was one of those nigh-mythical events that you read happens in Open Source projects, but never see in person. Yet, amazingly, here it was, and I knew Fred's patch would instantly double Inkscape's utility.

Actually, the snapshot versions are well worth trying out. A lot of new capabilities have gone into the codebase since the last release so you get more functionality. Plus, if you run into problems and report them, this helps ensure that the next release is that much better. Of course, don't expect that the snapshots are going to be as stable or performant as the releases, since we do extra QA for the releases and since bugs do tend to slip in during the development process, and that you should plan on reporting problems you run into.
