There has been a problem with updating the SVG page, but only since the
first week of May. (Updates happen at some but not all the mirrors. The
problem is being investigated.) This is the first time I heard of problems
going back as far as February.

I wonder if you could help me out here: please go to
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG and tell me 

a) the date of the top news item under 'what's new' and 
b) the date of 'last updated' at the bottom of that page

Also, if possible, the IP address of the server www.w3.org from Israel.

As to what has happened since February - a working draft of SVG was
released on 3 March, for a last call period. Feedback from that has been
incorporated by the SVG Working Group and a new draft is planned to be
released shortly... 

An SVG test suite, created by the Working Group, was released to the public
on 12 June; further releases with more detailed tests are planned.

In terms of implementations, there have been new releases of SVG-enabled
implementations since February from Adobe, Corel, CSIRO, CWI, IBM, JASC,
Koala, Mozilla, and Sun; SVG support was also added to killustrator and
ImageMagick.
