I was excited to work with Brad Neuberg at Google. He is a pragmatic champion of the Open Web; a “do-er”. In the past we have seen his work wrangling the browsers via Really Simple History and Dojo Storage.
Notable highlights of this release are:
- View source – You can now right click on an Flash SVG image and view the SVG source
- Huge improvements to the resizing code – the size of SVG objects on the page now change based on the zoom factor, resizing the window, etc.
- Performance improvements
- The demo.html file is much more robust now
- getScreenCTM, matrix inversions, createSVGPoint, and SVGPoint.matrixTransform are now implemented

Great work Brad, and the community that has rallied around the cause, such as Rick Masters and James Hight.
To take a peak at some of the hacks that they have had to employ to get this working, check out the source.
