Ronan Oger has released 0.1, a Perl module for dynamically generating SVG documents. Darin Adler has announced an update of the GNOME SVG library librsvg.

Oger's, available through CPAN and Oger's FTP site, supports SVG, as well as SMIL and DOM. Oger writes that future improvements to the module will likely include "better support for foreignbject, curves, filter, gradients, scripts."

Release 1.0.2 of the GNOME SVG library, librsvg, is predominantly a bugfix release over version 1.0.1. Source code is available from the GNOME FTP site. SVG is increasingly finding application in the GNOME desktop environment, being in use in the Nautilus file manager and the Sodipodi vector diagram editor.
