I am proud to release Karma version 0.2 today. karma.js is a library for
manipulating HTML 5 and SVG. It was developed specifically for educational
applications but can be used for general development

You can test out the demos here You need Firefox
3.5 or Google Chrome/Chromium to run the demo. We now have a well-documented
API and a four part tutorial.

The Karma Project aims to create high-quality open-source educational
software using openweb technologies for the Sugar desktop educational
environment. karma.js is a javascript library for manipulating HTML 5 and
SVG in any context.

New Features:
* Stable API
* Now much more reliable
* Pre-loading of SVG images
* 10+ example lessons

Features that didn't make it into Release 0.2:
* Internationalization mechanism for inline text
* New browsing layout (Chakra)

I am particularly proud of the Karma version of "Conozco a Uruguay". You can
try it out online right away.

If you are interested in Karma, the first step is to join our Google Group
and to look through our four-part tutorial series.

Tutorial series
* Introduction to karma.js,
* Comparing HTML 5 Canvas and SVG
* Digging into Inkscape
* JavaScript and SVG

I want to say thanks to the many people on the svg-dev mailing list and irc
channel who have been incredibly supportive, notably shepazu, csmrfx0,
narendra, codedread, JibberJim, and others.
