Announcement: Last Call WD of SVG 1.1 Second Edition

Dear SVG Community-

The SVG Working Group would like to announce the Last Call publication
of the SVG 1.1 (Second Edition) specification, available here:

This publication is intended to become a Second Edition of SVG 1.1, and
incorporates errata gathered on the SVG 1.1 specification. As required by
W3C process for modifying a Recommendation, no new features have
been added, and the intention is to not add any new features but to
clarify the specification where needed.

Some feedback on SVG 1.1 would require the addition of new features or
substantial changes; as such it is out of scope for a Second Edition and
has been deferred to SVG 2.0. The SVG 2.0 issue tracker is available here:


If you wish to make comments regarding the SVG 1.1 Second Edition
specification please send them to <> which is an email
list publicly archived at
Please use "[SVG1.1F2 LC]" in the subject line of your email.

The Last Call period will run for 3 weeks, until 13 July 2010.
We encourage early review.

     Test Suite

In the process of publishing SVG 1.1 Second Edition we have also worked
on extending and improving the SVG 1.1 test suite, which is publicly
available here:

At the time of writing there are 175 new tests compared to the previous
official SVG 1.1 test suite release (13 December 2006).

Note that tests that are marked as drafts are not yet reviewed and accepted
by the working group. We invite feedback on all the tests in the test
suite. The SVG 1.1 test suite issue tracker can be found here:
