It's been a couple days since I created a project on Google Code, so here's another one. Seriously though, Google released the Go programming language yesterday. It's intended as a systems programming language for projects that could be done in C or C++. All I saw was a short video showing off the quick compile time.
I've been working on rewriting my Wordpress SVG inlay plugin as a Drupal module. So far it works pretty well but I'm not ready to say it's secure or functional for most sites. The basic concept of the SVG inlay is that sometimes you just want to display an SVG image in a post or page. Not as a style element but as something that visitors want to look at which is relevant to the content. Like a chart, a graph, a network diagram, maybe even a little game.
The SVG Open is shaping up fast. The call for papers has been out there for a while now but if you're quick you can still present a paper or run a workshop but the deadline to submit for papers and courses is April 18 and that'll be here before you know it. The SVG Open is the conference for people doing SVG.
Introducing Get SVG.
I've been working on and off over the past few months on a site around SVG advocacy as well as helping users with SVG who may just be looking at SVG as a means to an end. I think that there are enough applications of SVG and implementations of SVG renderers out there now that there's a need for a site like this.
Jeff just put up some web stats made pretty by graphs done with SVG. He's also got a way of embedding SVG into an HTML page that shows up in most browsers. For many browsers an object element is enough but Internet Explorer with Adobe SVG Viewer 3 requires an embed tag to work properly. I think that's the gist of it. Jeff's got a good snippet of code to handle this, but it's kind of ugly and not convenient to use in a blog post.
