What happens to SVG now ?

With todays purchase of Macromedia by Adobe – what is the future for SVG. For me Adobes support of SVG was a lifelife to lukewarm support from the rest of the industry which supported flash as a platform for developing interactive graphic applications. SVG offers potentially much more than flash for developing data driven applications – but the battleground between the technologies was always going to be on the webpage – and is seems that battle may now be lost.

I cannot see Adobe supporting both SVG and the SVG plugin along with developing flash which must be the main reason to acquire Macromedia.
