Inkscape 0.48 release cycle is entering Frost stageMarch 30, 2010
Today we are entering Frost stage in preparation of the 0.48 release. It means that we are slowing down development of new features and start working actively on fixing bugs. End of Frost means: most new features are complete, release notes are more than 90% ready, 300 points for bugfixing are achieved and first alpha of 0.48 is released.
By the way, we are still ready to listen to your proposals for Google Summer of Code projects. Students applications started yesterday night. But before you apply, please introduce yourself in the inkscape-devel mailing list, discuss a project, find a mentor willing to work with you, and fix a couple of trivial bugs to learn Inkscape's source code a little.

So if you are eligible for GSoC, please have a look at a list of project ideas or feel free come up with your own ideas. The primary place of contact, as usual, is our inkscape-devel mailing list.

Our dearest user community, we are happy to announce that a traditional About screen contest has started at DeviantArt as a part of preparations for releasing 0.48 in few months. There is no particular theme this time, so you are entirely free in your choice. Draw freely, as it were ;-)
Please read details in the DeviantArt announcement and note that the deadline for your art submission is April 15. The community judging period will be from April 16 to April 22, and the TOP3 will be turned over to the developers for their final decision. Rock on!
