There are some of us who would rather not update to Inkscape 1.0. I have seen information that it is not stable with Mac High Sierra OS.
I am in a position right now that I cannot upgrade my OS (High Sierra) because Dreamweaver CS6 will not run on Catalina. That means that I have to redo my website in Wordpress before I can upgrade the OS so that I can upgrade to Inkscape 1.0. I think that’s a “Catch 22” situation, or at least a helluva lot of work.
