W3C Invites Implementations of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 2

August 7th, 2018

The SVG Working Group invites implementations of an updated Candidate Recommendation of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 2. This specification defines the features and syntax for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Version 2. SVG is a language based on XML for describing two-dimensional vector and mixed vector/raster graphics. SVG content is stylable, scalable to different display resolutions, and can be viewed stand-alone, mixed with HTML content, or embedded using XML namespaces within other XML languages. SVG also supports dynamic changes; script can be used to create interactive documents, and animations can be performed using declarative animation features or by using script. This version of SVG builds upon SVG 1.1 Second Edition by improving the usability and precision of the language. The Changes appendix lists all of the changes that have been made since SVG 1.1 Second Edition.
