Microsoft joins SVG working group
that they took a seat on the SVG working group
This good news for the SVG format, as a lot big players are backing it now.
NiXPS has been supporting
SVG for almost two years now. It is an interesting technology, but it practice it was being let down by a lot of broken/missing/poor support in various software components (Webkit SVG has a few issues, Internet Explorer support is laky, Adobe has an on/off relationship with SVG, etc...).
It is good news that Microsoft has decided to back the format more officially, it might improve Windows support for it, and make it a much more dependable format for the future.
Here at NiXPS we will keep following it closely.
