Lib-gwt-svg requires GWT 2.x. Depending on the version you GWT you are using, you must choose a version of lib-gwt-svg which matches it, as described in the following table:
|GWT version||lib-gwt-svg version|
|2.1.0 / 2.1.1||0.5.0|
|2.4.0||0.5.5, 0.5.4 or 0.5.3|
lib-gwt-svg has been tested on the following SVG-enabled web browsers:
|Opera||10.x or greater|
|Chrome||5.x or greater|
|IE||9.x (NB: on IE, xpath support is provided by integrating the excellent, Creative-Commons-licenced xpath.js library, by Cameron McCormack)|
|Firefox for Android||10.x (NB: firefox supports touch events, but only single touch at the moment. Support for true multitouch is planned for 11.x)|
|Android browser||Android 3.2 (NB: Android does not implement touch events for SVG)|
