Inkscape 0.92

Inkscape is vector graphics software for creating icons, illustrations, logos, diagrams, maps and web graphics. It's cross-platform, extremely feature-rich yet simple to use, and extendable. Users therefore include design professionals as well as hobbyists. It's engineered around the open and standard SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format. Its sophisticated drawing tools easily match up to Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW and Xara Xtreme. Inkscape also can import and export to AI, Encapsulated/Postscript, PDF, and PNG/JPEG and many other bitmap or vector formats.
