(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

VoodooPad 2.5.2 and FlySketch 1.6.1 have been released. Both are bug fix releases.

VP 2.5.2 fixes some problems with web export & images, misc AppleScript things, the web export about/preview image not working with old graphics cards (yea opengl), and encrypted pages not being cleaned up with spotlight indexing.

FlySketch 1.6.1 fixes some text and graphic bounds issues.

Dave Hyatt lets us know that SVG has been merged into the latest builds for WebKit. Rock on.


Here's a pic of the Flying Meat logo as a svg image, in a nightly webkit build, with a transparent background. So it looks like you'll have no problems using SVG in Dashboard in... 10.5 I guess. It'll be neat if Apple adds javascript hooks in there some day so we can do interactive SVG things.

So windows has Avalon/WinFX (is that what it's called now?) to do fancy transparent scriptable... applets. And Apple has this. I wonder if SVG is a response to Avalon, or just a natural progression. SVG has been around for a long time (almost seven years!), why is it being picked up now?
