Hi Helder,

I prepared an announce for svg.org that I'll post when Amaya is released.
I haven't currently much time to fix the remaining bugs. I think the 
more important now is to complete the documentation [1] so that it will 
be ready for the next release. If there is someone among the 
contributors who wants to do this work, my technical report [2] (in 
French) may help.

Fred
