The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) upgraded Amaya, its Web browser and editor, to version 8.0. The new release, posted Wednesday, adds support for some W3C technologies, including Extensible Markup Language (XML), Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), as well as new features to make it more accessible to people with disabilities. The new release also provides several dozen bug fixes.

Amaya, launched in 1996, is unlike other browsers in its focus on integrating document authoring and Web browsing. Like Mozilla, AOL Time Warner's Web development organization, and KHTML, Amaya is an open-source application available for free download. Its next upgrade is scheduled for July.
