Inkscape 0.92
Create everything from logos and diagrams to complex 3D designs

Inkscape is an open source SVG-based vector graphics editor that comes with a host of high-end, professional features.

You get a lengthy list of drawing tools, for instance, quick ways to create rectangles and squares, circles and arcs, spirals, polygons, 3D boxes, Bezier curves, straight lines and more. But there are also interesting sculpting and painting options, a lengthy list of path creation and editing options, and some very powerful text tools.

In common with other SVG editors, you're able to scale objects in a click or two, group and ungroup them, apply colours, gradients and strokes as required, align and combine objects, trace bitmaps and more.

And there's direct support for many advanced SVG features, like alpha blending, markers and clones.

There is a price to pay for this, as the learning curve is a little steep: you'll need to invest plenty of time and effort before you've properly mastered everything that Inkscape can do. If you need a good vector editor then it's well worth the effort, though, as Inkscape provides many of the same features as Illustrator for no cost at all.

What's new in 0.92.4 (see news for more)?

- Align multiple objects as a group relative to a single object
- Write image data to standard output and read from it
- Experience extensions working faster within complex documents
- See improved speed when deselecting a path with many nodes
- Ungroup text elements won’t result in changed font size of children
- Able to print and / or print correct paper size with printers (especially Canon, EPSON, Konica Minolta)
- See improved performance of the measure tool when grids are visible
- See proper opacity of partially transparent embedded bitmap images in PDF export
- Able to Shift/Ctrl-click on control handles of shapes without crashing
- Build Inkscape with up-to-date poppler library 0.72.0 – useful for Mac users building with Homebrew

Verdict:

It can be a little complicated, but take the time to master the basics and Inkscape will give you plenty of vector editing features and functionality

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
