Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) WG: 2 Drafts Published

Author(s) and publish date


The SVG Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft and one Working Draft. SVG Paths is a specification that defines a syntax and DOM representation for paths, which are shapes that can be rendered in a document. Paths are primarily used for rendering shapes using the SVG ‘path’ element, but are also used by a number of other Web platform features, such as clipping paths and rendering in an HTML ‘canvas’. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 2 is a specification that 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.
