The Inkscape team has just released v. 0.48.5, the next version will be 0.91:rolleyes:.
This version will fix a lot of outstanding bugs. In my tryout everything seems very snappy and if you have ever thought that Inkscape takes a while to open, put your seatbelt on before trying this one - I clocked it at 1.2 sec!
64 bit builds are slightly behind the official release but nothing noticeable. Get them here with the standard interface and theme (no offense to the custom themed 64 builders, but those are a bit unreadable!)
Inkscape is Free and Open Source and very useful in many ways for Blender users!
