After several years without development, Adobe has finally announced that it will end-of-life the SVG Viewer. Support will be discontinued on January 1, 2007, and downloads of the viewer will cease some time early 2008.

This is unfortunate because Adobe SVG Viewer (SVG) is one of the better, more complete implementations of the SVG specifications. One of the reasons cited for EOL-ing the viewer is supposed native support in some browsers. While there has been progress in this respect (both Firefox and Opera have implemented portions of the SVG 1.0 spec), neither of these implementations can match the features available in ASV.
