> Notes About This Release (April 11)
> Look for the green bullets , indicating new pages, and the maroon bullets , indicating updated
> content.   New Viewers now have expanded contextual menus (right-click on PCs, ctrl-click on Macs) with
> features such as: search for text strings in your image, and view and copy SVG source code. For this
> reason, the "view source" links that accompanied all SVG images in this site have been removed.
>   New converters now export any Type 1 and most TrueType fonts. (Please note, you will need to re-export
> any .cef files generated by previous builds in order to comply with the new Viewer specs).
>   Note that the MIME type for SVG has changed to "image/svg-xml" to conform to the W3C's general scheme
> for XML MIME types. You will need to update the MIME type on your servers, and you must install the new
> Viewer in order to view the updated content in this Beta Release.
>   The latest SVG Specification (3/3/00), and to various other implementations of SVG.
