Vectoreal is pleased to announce the release of the SmilScript Library v0.1.
SmilScript is a partial implementation of SMIL in JavaScript. It is intended
to provide transitional support for SMIL in SVG implementations that do not
currently provide animation and declarative interaction. SmilScript v0.1 has
been tested in Firefox and Batik, and is also intended to work in SVG# (when
its scripting support is more advanced).

Vectoreal encourages anyone who needs SMIL support to download, test, and
use this library.

SmilScript v0.1 provides support for the most common uses of <set>,
<animate>, <animateColor>, <animateMotion>, and <animateTransform> elements
(though with a few implementation-specific bugs). It is being written and
maintained by Doug Schepers.

Provision has also been made to prevent it from interfering in UAs that
already support SMIL (specifically the Adobe SVG Viewer, but addition
safeguards are being developed). This allows users to include it safely with
existing SVG content, and be assured of functionality across
implementations.
