Anticipation is rising on the SVG-Dev list on an upcoming update of the Adobe SVG Viewer to version 4. Adobe have just released the mysterious Adobe Image Viewer 4.0. Apparently, this is an add-on for Acrobat Reader meant for visualizing presentations created with the upcoming Photoshop Album digital photo software.
Altough the Image Viewer page says nothing about SVG, it appears that it encapsulates new and updated SVG DLLs on Windows built last September, far more recent than those of SVG Viewer 3.0. Also, there is a page on the SVG Zone for the Image Viewer summarizing modifications on codes governed by the MPL. Installing the Image Viewer does not change anything when viewing SVG in browsers where the SVG Viewer 3.0 is still handling everything. Anyway, now it is clear Adobe have some updated core SVG components initially available in the SVG Viewer. It shouldn't be too long before someone from Adobe gives us an update on this on the SVG list.
