Sorry for my late comment on this but I wasn’t here. Anyhow, the new version of Inkscape is available now!
I’m downloading now, this is what they said about it:
This version of the SVG-based vector graphics editor brings a new Spray tool, multipath editing, superscripts and subscripts in text, as well as numeric control of text kerning, tracking, rotation and more, several new extensions for web developers and first take at adaptive user interface.
The release notes are here. I can’t wait to test it. 💡
