The highlight of today’s update is a feature I’ve wanted to have for a long time: path offsetting.
Path offsetting works by moving a path along the normals of each point along the curve. This sounds simpler than it is in practice due to how bezier curves work. In addition to the new Offset Component node, there is also a new Vector tool that allows for the interactive offset of curves.
Another cool feature that has been added is the ability to grow and shrink selection masks. This exists as commands in the Edit menu as well as a node in Vector > Mask
