Announcing Inkscape 0.92.3
>>Starting up faster. Crashing less. Still drawing freely.
Inkscape 0.92.3 is mainly a stability and bugfix release, but it also brings some small new features, like being able to set an ellipses' radii numerically in the tool controls, or switching the writing direction from left-to-right to right-to-left. Windows users will be happy to learn that the long startup times many of them were seeing could greatly be reduced. A new rendering option with an adjusted default value can vastly improve performance when working with filters.
Many of the bug fixes address important functionality, like printing issues, crashes with the node tool or problems with keyboard shortcuts.
