New Inkscape Website

The website's redesign was combined with a complete rebuilding of the system that sits behind it. It is now a Django CMS based website, which will allow website users to help write content, translate pages and submit news.

New to the website is a full search system, a news system, translations into other languages, galleries imported via RSS feeds from other websites and Launchpad integration to give an overview of development for the next version of Inkscape.

The website has been well received and in the first week it has 400 new users registered and 20 editors. The website also has 20 newly reported bugs and more are likely as new users discover them and the site is polished and perfected.

The main developer for the website says there will be further development to add features to the website for users to upload their own content and collaborate on tutorials, galleries and help for each other.
