The Apache Foundation has released a new version of Batik.
Batik is a Java-based toolkit for applications or applets that want to use images in the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format for various purposes, such as display, generation or manipulation.
Using Batik’s thumbnail function to navigate a complex SVG document
Batik is not only relevant for java developers. It also contains various
tools that can help in converting svg files into other formats (see
how we used it to convert the
svg produced with Inkscape into a pdf), encode ttf
svg font format or simply view an svg document in a browser (batik ships
with the squiggle
the most reliable svg viewer for the moment)
Last but not least, Batik's latest release now supports many features related to animation.
