“After months of conference calls, the most recent face to face meeting of SVG Working Group helped us make progress on this web standard. The biggest “news” from this meeting was the group’s decision to take next step to finish current SVG proposal – “SVG 1.1 2nd Edition” – and send it as a Proposed Recommendation to W3C Advisory Committee for final endorsement. We also started more serious conversations about SVG 2.0. As the Web has advanced in a lot of areas in and around SVG, one of the most important things we can do as a group is ensure sure different parts of HTML5 work well together. There’re good real life examples of this in SVG Fonts and WOFF that demonstrated the challenge the group discussed and how we move forward to make the web more interoperable in the right way; more on that below,” writes Microsoft.
