Introducing Vector Graphics and Inkscape
The screenshots and the text of this article refer to Inkscape 0.45 on SUSE 10.1. The official Inkscape road map tells us that the most interesting things in the near future should be PDF import/export and Visio support in version 0.47, followed by the authoring of simple animations in Inkscape 0.48. Version 0.50 should include SVG Mobile support. The plan also includes switching parts of the display engine to Cairo, up to the point where Inkscape can use the hardware-accelerated back end of that library. As you can see, there are a lot of reasons to try Inkscape today and keep an eye on it in the coming months.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
