A SVG-based graphics editor (drawing tool) for *NIX (GNOME), MacOSX and Windows programmed in C++ and GTK, compliant with SVG, XML, CSS2 standards. Inkscape is derived from Sodipodi which was programmed in C instead. It features and aims to have similar features as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw. Currently implemented features include (but are not limited to): SVG to PNG export, note editing, alpha blending, basic shapes, paths, text, grouping, and more. The project is still in development, but matures fast; faster than Sodipodi took off.
