The Inkscape project has released a first beta version of the upcoming and much-awaited Inkscape 1.0!

After releasing two less visible alpha versions this year, in mid-January and mid-June (and one short-lived beta version), Inkscape is now ready for extensive testing and subsequent bug-fixing.
The most notable changes to watch out for are:

Theming support
Origin in top left corner
Canvas rotation and mirroring
On-Canvas alignment of objects
Better HiDPI screen support
Controlling the width of PowerStroke with pressure sensitive graphics tablet
Fillet/chamfer LPE and (non-destructive) Boolean Operation LPE
New PNG export options
Centerline tracing
New Live Path Effect selection dialog
Faster Path operations and deselection of large number of paths
Variable fonts support
Complete extensions overhaul
Command line syntax changes
Native support for macOS with a signed and notarized .dmg file
