Inkscape is an open source SVG editor with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, Visio, etc. Supported SVG features include basic shapes, paths, text, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, node editing, svg-to-png export, grouping, and more.

Inkscape's main motivation is to provide the Open Source community with a fully XML, SVG, and CSS2 compliant SVG drawing tool. Additional planned work includes conversion of the codebase from C/Gtk to C++/Gtkmm, emphasizing a lightweight core with powerful features added through an extension mechanism, and establishment of a friendly, open, community-oriented development processes.

I'm using this software for a few months now. It doesn't even come close to CorelDraw/Illustrator but it's improving really fast. At the current stage it has all main features of a vector-based drawing tool; node editing, paths, full text support (kerning etc), text on path, transform tools. I recomment it.

EDIT: It can also trace bitmap images (which means convert them to vector ones, mainly for black & white images but there is basic support for color in the cvs)
