Good morning everyone,

This week I worked on the SvmReader[1][2] class needed to make svm 
format independent of the VCl Metafile.
I pushed several commits[3] with different handlers for the metaact[4] 
sub-classes. The last handler has to do with MetaMaskAction::Read.
The handlers yet to be implemented start from MetaMaskScaleAction until 
The svmtest[5] is currently using all the implemented handlers of the 
SvmReader and everything is
working smoothly.
In my local machine the class is about 90% completed and the completed 
handlers will be pushed shortly!

Code pointers:

Next week TODO's:

1) Complete the SvmReader class
2) Begin working on SvmWriter

SvmWriter will have a similar purpose with SvmReader, only this time the 
MetaAction::Write functions will be targeted and replaced with the 
appropriate handlers.

That's all for this week! Let me know if you have any thoughts on the 
subjects mentioned above.
