Now complete support for SVG is a reality we can use this very flexible and lightweight image format with confidence. If you’re not familiar with SVG, its basically a text based image file that describes vector images and effects. In reality SVG supports very complex image types so be aware the extension has partial to no support for some parts of the SVG spec at this time.

The current version of the extension doesn’t have support for export, so download Aaron beall’s SVG export extension from his site.
