Congratulations to the Inkscape developers on releasing version 0.47. In case you’re new at this site, Inkscape is an Open Source (and free of charge) vector graphics program, in a similar vein to Adobe Illustrator. It saves in the SVG file format – an open standard which is supported by various applications, including native support in most web browsers (except Internet Explorer).

It’s the program we use to create The Greys, and we make the original Inkscape SVG file of each of our comics available to download, usually embedding extra jokes or references as Easter Eggs. The new version adds extra features that will make it quicker and easier for us to work on The Greys, and is well worth checking out if you’re looking for a vector graphics program on a budget.
