>Just in time for Thanksgiving is another SVG Web release. The SVG Web project’s tradition is to name SVG Web releases after monsters from D&D just to increase the geek factor, so in that spirit their release name this time is “Gelatinous Cube”:
The Gelatinous Cube is a truly horrifying creature:
A gelatinous cube looks like a transparent ooze of mindless, gelatinous matter in the shape of a cube. It slides through dungeon corridors, absorbing everything in its path, digesting everything organic and secreting non-digestible matter in its wake. Contact with its exterior can result in a paralyzing electric shock, after which the cube will proceed to slowly digest its stunned and helpless prey.
Highlights of this release:
- Loads of important bugs fixed
- Performance improvements
- You can now dynamically create new SVG root tags
- All the namespace aware functions now implemented: setAttributeNS, getAttributeNS, etc.
- You can now clone SVG nodes (cloneNode)
- You can now right-click on the SVG when using Flash to view the dynamic updated SVG source
- Running getElementsByTagNameNS scoped to a particular node now works, such as myGroup.getElementsByTagNameNS(svgns, ‘text’)
- and much much more
