I am proud to announce the immediate availability of Adobe SVG Viewer 2.0 in
both English and Japanese. Support for additional languages will be rolled
out over the next few months. This release has some additional Accessibility
features such as mouseless panning (via the numlock key), improved support
for the SVG spec, improved performance and rendering.

Distribution News

As previously announced, Adobe SVG Viewer will soon ship with RealNetworks'
Real Player. In addition, Adobe SVG Viewer will ship with each copy of
Adobe® Acrobat® and Acrobat Reader®. This will enable the distribution of
approximately 45 million viewers before the end of this year, and an
estimated 110 million in twelve months. Additional distribution is included
in Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe® Illustrator®, Adobe® GoLive® and other Adobe
