I am pleased to announce the second public draft of SMIL animation,
which is a declarative syntax for animating XML attributes and the
cascaded, computed result of CSS properties. This provides a syntax
which can be generated and interpreted by WYSIWYG authoring tools, and
can also be combined with traditional, script-based, direct animation
using the DOM.

This draft has been jointly developed by the SYMM and SVG working
groups. It is intended to be a general animation syntax, which can be
integrated into a variety of host languages. SVG will be the first such
language to use it.It will be possible to animate multi-namespace
documents, of which SVG is only one part, using this new animation
syntax, and all the component parts will animate smoothly together over
a single integrated timeline.

Public comment is explicitly invited, and should be sent to the mailing
list www-smil@w3.org.
