Hi all,

I wanted to let you know the Sept issue Linux Format UK has published a very 
nice review of Linux drawing applications, as well as a short tutorial for 
both Inkscape and Scribus.

Inkscape 0.38 got 8/10 overall and tied with OO draw to top honors. Overall a 
very positive review. Ease of use got 9/10. Many of the comments on missing 
features are already in 0.39 or are on the 0.40 roadmap.

Summing up, they said:
"The future of Inkscape looks bright, especially if planned cooperation with 
Scribus and the GIMP comes to fruition, which would finally realise the 
concept of a full-spec graphics suite to Linux....The crucial omissions are 
support for PDF and EPS formats, though getting around this is not too 
onerous with a little help from Scribus."

If it is available locally it might be worth getting.
