As announced previously, the Inkscape development team had their latest hackfest in Kiel, Germany.

What happened?

Besides the developer team having a meetup and building personal relationships?
Some serious work being done.

Just a few of the technical achievements amongst bug fixes and performance boosting:

    Centerline tracing - first steps for inclusion in Inkscape. There is no graphical user interface for it yet, but one step at a time.

     External SVG linking with real-time changeable resolution.

    A fix for Inkscape's coordinate issues. Coordinate system will flip back to the svg specs's.

A summarising video of the hackfest is in post production, stay tuned.
