Subject Batik 1.5beta1 release available
Date Mon, 11 Mar 2002 17:44:28 GMT

Batik 1.5beta1 is available! This is the first release since 1.1.1.

The release name increment (from 1.1.x to 1.5x) is due to 
the much improved support for scripting in this new release.

Batik now supports modification of SVG graphics through scripting
which allows dynamic updates to SVG documents in response to 
user events and even animations of graphical elements.

Specifically, Batik now provides extensive support for DOM Core
(modification of 'x' or 'y' attributes on a <rect>, for example),
and for DOM Events (such as mouse events or attribute modification

This release does not yet support dynamic updates of CSS properties
nor SMIL animation.

The new release contains examples of these features in the samples 
directory and in the samples/tests/spec/scripting directory.

The new build is available at:

1. Binary distribution: 

2. Source distribution:

The README on the download page recaps the changes in the various 
developer releases since 1.0beta1.
