Subject Apache Batik 1.0 beta available
Date Mon, 04 Dec 2000 18:11:21 GMT

The beta version of Batik 1.0 was made available today from Apache's
XML web site. Batik is a Java based toolkit for 
applications that want to use images in the Scalable Vector Graphics 
(SVG, an XML syntax for 2D graphics) format for various purposes, 
such as viewing, generation or manipulation. 

The URL for the Apache Batik project is:


Batik's goal is to provide a full implementation of the SVG
specification. The 1.0 beta version supports a large number of 
static features, including several filters and text selection.

Among other applications, Batik comes with a stand-alone viewer 
that has interesting features such as a thumbnail view of the 
document, a DOM view, the ability to zoom, pan and rotate document 
and the ability to export svg images to raster formats (see screen 
shots at http://xml.apache.org/batik/svgviewer.html).
