No, but SVG 1.1 and 1.2 together are similar to it in effect. 1.1 does
the modularization and subsetting, and 1.2 does the extra features.

A 2.0 is still planned, but is further off. The number "2.0" causes
many people to think of a total rewrite or a major change; I don't see
that we need that.

Features that are in 1.2 but turn out to be harder than expected or
not to be well implemented might well get deferred to 2.0; similarly
stuff for 2.0 that turns out easier than expected and gets well
implemented might move forward to 1.2
