I am really excited to tell you all that open source apps like,
3D App Blender, Vector App InkScape & Raster App GIMP got updated to new version at a same time respectively as Blender 2.5, Inkscape 0.47 & Gimp 2.6.7
What really good news is GIMP now supports 64 bit computing. And Blender was already supporting 64 bit processing. But IncScape is yet to support or yet to release version with 64 bit support.
