OpenLaszlo tests SVG waters

Over on the OpenLaszlo Weblog, Henry Minsky blogged about testing out a new OpenLaszlo kernal based on Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). Right now it looks to be a very rough cut, but according to Henry, he is going to see about cleaning it up and adding it to the Legals release which I blogged about earlier.

This seems like a very small milestone, and it is, but SVG has gotten some attention from my commenters and people I talk to as a legitimate solution to RIA graphics. Adobe was a big supporter of SVG which, before they purchased Macromedia, was seen as something of a competitor to Flash. I'm not sure what the current state of Adobe's SVG support is, but while adoption has been slow, many people see it as a useful technology. Firefox's native support only furthers that. Will Adobe move to incorporate SVG in some of their newly acquired Macromedia technologies? It will be interesting to see how far OpenLaszlo takes SVG and how Adobe's support for it changes.
