@Patrick Storz

How can I get the latest inkscape-thrunk with the fixed bug? (for Windows 10 and/or for Ubuntu 18.04)

Do I have to build it like described here?

Or is there also a executable?

I need this feature quite offten, since 1 made more than 1000 workarounds for using ungrouping by Inkscape.

@Patrick Storz

How can i get the newest version with the bug resolved?

Are there any executable to install (Win10 or/and Ubuntu 18.04) or do I have to build it from source on my own? Where do I get those installation-files?

Thanks, but now it still does not work for

 <g font-family="DejaVu Sans" text-anchor="middle">
  <text transform="scale(10)"><tspan x="108.73" y="71.2" font-size="2.66">Гуанхауто</tspan></text>

because after ungrouping (leads to a removement of transform) it should have font-size="26.6" instead of font-size="2.66".
