WebCore + SVG

Eric Seidel has just landed support for a new target in the WebCore project that lets you compile an experimental port of KSVG. In his own words:

I’m proud to announce the introduction of experimental SVG support into WebCore.

Over the last few months I ported KDE’s new DOM architecture “KDOM” as well as their Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) implementation “KSVG2” and render tree library “KCanvas” to WebCore.

Working with the Safari team over the last few weeks, we have now integrated these changes into the WebCore cvs tree to allow the investigation of further integration of SVG support into Safari.

The SVG page on WebKit contains more information regarding the status of the project.

There is a lot left to be done, but here’s hoping for a bright SVG future!
