DOM support. V3.0 has support for the SVGMatrix class; support for the getCTM, getElementsByTagNameNS, and getBBox methods.
Adobe SVG Viewer 3.0 Demos include:
- Airbus: Created by US Airways, this proof-of-concept is an excellent example of the use of SVG to create interactive Smart Graphics.
- Chemical Markup Language: This demo shows the true versatility of SVG. Data stored in another XML-related language, CML (Chemical Markup Language), is manipulated via XSL (Extensible Stylesheet Language) to create to SVG.
- Visual Building Search: A considerable advance from your typical phone directory application, this demo allows you to search for a person, view building floor plans, plan routes, and print crystal clear maps.
- Fluent Solutions/Adobe Theater: This is a prototype of a data-driven, enterprise-class server application. Find out how SVG is easily integrated with other applications, including Web and database servers.
- Reflections: Created by Republik One, this demo uses filter and text effects to present personal reflections inspired by the passage of the seasons.
- SVG Draw: This demo is a page markup program that serves as the basis of code for annotating another SVG graphic. Not only is it written with SVG, but the generated image is also SVG.
SVG description from the Adobe SVG Zone:
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a new graphics file format and Web development language based on XML. SVG enables Web developers and designers to create dynamically generated, high-quality graphics from real-time data with precise structural and visual control. With this powerful new technology, SVG developers can create a new generation of Web applications based on data-driven, interactive, and personalized graphics. Because it is written in XML, SVG content can be linked to back-end business processes such as e-commerce systems, corporate databases, and other rich sources of real-time information...SVG creates powerful, dynamic content because it tightly integrates front-end graphics to back-end business processes and data including e-commerce systems, corporate databases, and other rich sources of information. SVG files use existing and proven Web standards such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and Extensible Style Sheet Language so that graphics can be easily customized...By dynamically changing image attributes, SVG eliminates the need for numerous image files. For example, a navigation button that normally requires a minimum of two raster files can be replaced by a single SVG file -- rollover states and behaviors are specified via easily scriptable attributes such as color, shape, size, text, or opacity. And because SVG is text based, production teams can utilize version control systems to track and manage all changes made to a file... In a traditional Web workflow, content (data), presentation (graphics), and application logic (scripting) are developed sequentially. If a change is made to content after a project is complete, entire graphics must often be re-created. SVG separates these three elements, allowing them to be developed in parallel, reducing development time and distributing the work more efficiently. By separating such workflow elements, SVG enables developers to develop and designers to design.
