Support SVG Images in APL Templates
The APL Image component currently only supports JPEG and PNG images. I propose adding support for vector graphics (SVG) which allow displaying of images using (in some cases) less bandwidth and better scaling for different display sizes.
Currently, SVGs so not render on the device at all, but are shown as expected in the simulator.
I was amazed to find SVG images are not supported in templates and cards. It is now (finally) a first class format on the web and most other contexts. As Daniel says, the benfits make it seem a natural fit for all Alexa devices with displays
* Less storage
* Faster over the wire transmission
* Scalable so look good at all resolutions
* No need to supply different resolutions for different devices
* Are programatically modifiable as src is text
I was planning to work on some Accessibility / Assistive technology skills using AAC symbols like https://mulberrysymbols.org/ which are naturally SVGs.
