Inkscape 1.0 is a major milestone for the Inkscape project, following
the update of our user interface toolkit GTK to GTK+3, which allows us
to support custom theming and HiDPI screen resolutions, and to provide a
native app for macOS (as a preview).

We also introduced a long list of new features outlined in detail and
illustrated at https://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Release_notes/1.0 .

The highlights of this release are:

* Easier theming options
* macOS support
* HiDPI screen support
* Rotating and mirroring of canvas
* Alignment of object with on-canvas handles
* Split view and X-Ray modes to inspect path geometry
* Searchable symbols dialog
* New live path effect selection dialog
* PowerPencil Live Path Effect to draw variable width strokes with
graphic tablets
* Many new useful live path effects (corner rounding tool, offsets,
measures...)
* Performance improvements for path operations on large number of paths
* Default coordinate origin has been moved to the top left
* Improved text line-height support
* Variable font support
* Browser-compatible flowed text
* Extensions now use Python 3
