New SVG Web Release: Beholder

Yowsers! It's another release of SVG Web, this time code named Beholder:

According to the classic D&D Monster Manual, the Beholder is an "aggressive and avaricious spherical monster that is most frequently found underground." In other words, you don't want to bump into this guy in a back alley.

This release, roughly about 1 month of work, has contributions from many users and developers. We've knocked out a bunch of bugs and features. The full release list:

Download the new release, read the Quick Start guide, and visit the SVG Web home page.

I smell cinnamon!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. and the beholder has an awfully big eye... lets hope this project lives up to it.
I tried the feblend example from at w3c found at Doesn't seem to work. Seems like feblend doesn't work with anything for that matter. It looks like it does in chrome when SVG Web is used. The text lays on top of the bg but does bland like it's supposed to.
@Ittiz: Only the Gaussian Blur Filter is currently supported. Most browsers only support a simple subset of the SVG Filters. I do not believe the feBlend filter is well supported currently, except for Opera.
That's sad, been trying to make a pixel perfect 2d color gradient and feBlend seems to be the only way to do it. More complicated filters like feDisplacementMap work in firefox (3.5) but feBlend doesn't :P
