Dear SVG users, interested parties,

We are pleased to announce that we have just posted a significantly updated
version of the IBM SVGView application to our alphaWorks web site (
http://www.alphaWorks.ibm.com) for free download. The new version number is
0.2a.

SVGView is an SVG viewer written entirely in Java that exploits Java 2D and
IBM's award winning XML4J parser.

This is the second version to be posted to alphaWorks. We posted the initial
version on July-30th 1999, and since then it has been downloaded more than 800
times. We appreciate all of the nice words and suggestions we have received as
e-mails from users of the initial version.

Here is a summary of some of the key new features in this release:

SVGView now comes with over 70 fully annotated SVG sample files.

New in this release:

- Links (you can move between SVG files by mouse clicking on shapes)
- Linear gradients
- Radial Gradients
- Patterns & Textures (image patterns)
- Printing
- Selective validation.
- Support for more of the SVG syntax
- Upgraded to match the July-30th (19990730) spec and DTD
- Editable bookmarks
