New SVG Web Release: Owlbear

Hi everyone, the SVG Web team has another release packed with lots of goodness.

Starting now we are giving releases not only a date stamp but also simple names, taken from the classic Fiend Folio D&D monster manual. Why? Because the world needs more cheesy release names.

Notable highlights of the svgweb-2009-09-09 release, also known as the Owlbear release ("Terrifying: the body of a bear... the head of an owl"):

* View source - You can now right click on an Flash SVG image and view the SVG source
* Huge improvements to the resizing code - the size of SVG objects on the page now change based on the zoom factor, resizing the window, etc.
* Performance improvements
* The demo.html file is much more robust now
* getScreenCTM, matrix inversions, createSVGPoint, and SVGPoint.matrixTransform are now implemented
* The internal JavaScript architecture has been cleaned up and simplified for Internet Explorer

Please keep in mind SVG Web is still in alpha.
