The codebase has been put into a preliminary frost for our 'Bug Hunt'. Our goal is to close 300 points worth of bugs (9 pts for critical bugs, 6pts for med, 3pts for low.) We're at about 50 points currently. You can help us achieve this release by reviewing the bug tracker and submitting patches to help close open bugs.
Inkscape Website IssuesDecember 29, 2006
Apologies if you've recently experienced problems accessing inkscape.org. A bug in the Linux kernel's networking behavior was preventing it from "forgetting" connections quickly enough. Because so many people access inkscape.org each day, this was resulting in us hitting the maximum number of connections allowed. We were restarting the webserver about once a day to keep it online.
We've reconfigured things to make the kernel time out connections much more quickly, which seems to have completely resolved the issue. Hopefully one day we can upgrade to a new kernel that lacks this bug. Thanks go to Kees Cook for troubleshooting this problem.
