Renesis is the code-name for the next generation svg rendering engine beeing build
by EvolGrafiX Europe. The rendering engine is in development since about five
years now and will be shown as an alpha version on the SVG Open 2005. Renesis
aims to be a full SVG 1.2 compatible renderer supporting sXBL, XSLT, XPath and
XForms as well. Renesis will be running in all known Webbrowsers (IE, Opera, Firefox)
as well as on Windows, Windows CE, Linux, Linux Embedded, Unix, SunOs and MacOs
operating systems as well as small device systems like Symbian and of course as
a native compiled assembly on the .NET Plattform (including mono). The rendering
engine is more than just a rendering engine, Renesis is supposed to be a full
application-development framework based on sXBL and SVG and other modern XML-Dialects.
Renesis also introduces a new language, the C#-Standard (ECMA-334) besides the
standard ECMAScript engine, to provide a powerful underlying language that allows
to build SVG and sXBL Documents. Both engines (C#, ECMAScript) are based on EvolGrafiX'
inhouse interpreters and by that, will not suffer from problems that implementations
like the mozilla JS Engine has. The renesis project aims to be the fastest viewer
available, due the testing phase, documents of more than 800 MB where loaded in
about two minutes into the SVG Viewer renderer. No other technology (Flash and
other graphic engines) nowadays are able to keep up with the perfomance of the
viewer, nor with the fully supported standards like mentioned at the beginning.
