Adobe StationeryI'm glad to announce that the fourth public beta release of
Adobe® SVG Viewer 2.0 is now available at:
  http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/beta.html (temporarily English only)

This beta includes support for the November 2, 2000 SVG Candidate
Recommendation. For details of what is in this release, see
http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/pdfs/betacurrentsupport.pdf.

You can find the Windows release notes at:
http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/pdfs/betawinviewer.pdf and Macintosh
release notes at http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/pdfs/betamacviewer.pdf.

Our Engineering team has worked hard to fix as many of the reported bugs as
possible. We encourage SVG Developers to test the latest release against your
own SVG.  There is of course, an SVG Conformance Test Suite
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/ which included in Adobe's QE process, but
the more stress testing people do on our Viewer, the better it will serve the
community as a whole so we welcome your feedback and test cases when content
does not display as you expect it to. Test cases are always helpful.

I want to thank all of you who have filled bugs, tested other people's potential
bugs, and helped weed out the occasional error introduced by the author, rather
than the the Adobe SVG Viewer. Today, SVG is in a very strong position thanks to
all of you in the SVG Development and Design community and the growing list of
authoring tools and servers that support SVG. When combined with the long hours
of research contributed by all of you, it becomes clear that SVG is going to
change the Web profoundly and completely and all of you are leading the way.

Unfortunately, we can't promise to respond directly to every question, but as
all of you who are active here and on the other SVG forums know, the SVG
Engineering and Marketing teams at Adobe are very attentive to the needs and
we'll do our best. It would be even more helpful to us if would give us bug
reports (http://www.adobe.com/svg/feedback/bugreport.html) and feedback
(http://www.adobe.com/svg/feedback/feedback.html) using the previously mentioned
web forms.If you do send us feedback through the web forms but also post a
question to here, it would be helpful if you mentioned that so we can avoid
duplication of bug reports.

Continued success to everyone and thanks for the continued enthusiasm and
determination to push the limits of a new technology.

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave
a trail."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

I hope everyone will forgive me for quoting an American, it just seemed to
capture my admiration for the undertaking you are all part of.
