I remember reading somewhere that Inkscape would be adding SVG animation
features to the software, similar to what Macromedia Flash does. Is this

It's true that there are plans for adding SVG animation. I don't think
we can say it would necessarily be similar to Flash, but who knows.
As far as when it'll be available, we actually make it a practice not to
specify dates for when long term things will be done, to avoid setting
up false expectations. (There'd be no way to enforce that date anyway.)
However, if you're anxious to see the feature and know how to code C++,
you'd be welcome to help work on it. If you don't code, but have time
you can commit, there's almost certainly some design/ documentation/
research/ etc. work that you could do that could help move the ball
forward. If you don't have time or are not able to contribute, then be
patient and hopefully someone will get to it. :-)
If you look at the roadmap, and count how many releases we did in 2004,
you can get a very approximate estimate for the time it'll take us to
reach it according to plan. Double that number to get a more
