  • CSS-based drop shadow support. Not box-shadow, based on rectangles, but on arbitrary shapes.

    CSS gradients based on shape rather than unidirectional gradient or radius—e.g., darker as you approach an edge.

    Circle/ellipse syntax within the d attribute of paths instead of arcs with points .001 apart or multiple Bézier curves.

    Scriptable filter interface without needing the DOM API.


  • can anyone explain how a vectorization algorithm chooses respective figures such as lines ,arc from raster image .I need mathematical logic behind it ,most of online content is in the form of html language

    Having been distracted over the last 3 years, I would be disappointed if this WC3 Community Group didn’t have another attempt to get off the ground and fly.
    I feel there are still SVG issues that are worthwhile pursuing for standardisation or best practice (e.g. 1 – geospatial linking; 2 – 3D/4D integration; 3 – fonts and symbols)
