SVG is growing in popularity by leaps and bounds. The SVG Working Group wants to make sure that SVG expands to meet the needs of the designer and developer community.
To that end, we have put a lot of effort into opening up our process: we’ve changed from a member-only group to a public group; we hold all our technical discussions in public; we post all our meeting agendas and minutes to the read-write www-svg list, and take agenda requests from the public; we started an open SVG Interest Group, which everyone is welcome to join; we’ve reached out to the open-source community to invite participation by an Inkscape contributor (more on that later); and we’re actively seeking out the opinions of community leaders and people from the trenches in a variety of ways.
But sometimes too much is not enough. It’s hard for busy people to sift through the technical details and standards process to find the SVG gold dust that helps them in their everyday jobs. Thus, this blog. We will try to keep you updated on the most relevant details of SVG implementations, publication of specifications, links to cool uses of SVG, and other news in the SVG world.
Readers who want to play an active role in the development of the SVG language are invited to post to the www-svg mailing list, as usual, but we hope this blog (and its Atom newsfeed) will help you stay aware of what you need to know about SVG’s progress.
