librsvg (GNOME SVG Library, RSVG) is a component used within software applications to enable support for SVG-format scalable graphics. In contrast to raster formats, scalable vector graphics provide users and artists a way to create, view, and provide imagery that is not limited to the pixel or dot density that an output device is capable of.
Many software developers use the librsvg library to render SVG graphics. It is lightweight and portable, requiring only libxml and libart at a minimum, while providing extra features when used with libcroco, libgsf, and mozilla. It is included as part of the GNOME Desktop, and is licensed under the LGPL license.
