Adobe announced the immediate availability of Adobe SVG Viewer 2.0 in both English and Japanese. Support for additional languages will be rolled out over the next few months. This release has some additional Accessibility features such as mouseless panning (via the numlock key), improved support for the SVG spec, improved performance and rendering. As previously announced, Adobe SVG Viewer will soon ship with RealNetworks’ Real Player. In addition, Adobe SVG Viewer will ship with each copy of Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader. This will enable the distribution of approximately 45 million viewers before the end of this year, and an estimated 110 million in twelve months. Additional distribution is included in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe GoLive and other Adobe products. The SVG Viewer is at www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/main.html, and the release notes at www.adobe.com/svg/indepth/releasenotes.html
