Inkscape is an open source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to those of Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW and Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. Inkscape supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more. Inkscape also aims to maintain a thriving user and developer community by using open, community-oriented development. The OSL is responsible for hosting a Virtual Machine which hosts the Inkscape website, wiki and various development builds.
