v96 added "animation support for backgroundColor (fill) of SVG Icons". Awesome! But shouldn't the colour be set by the color property not the backgroundColor property. WDYT?
You might be right. Changing it now would be a breaking unfortunately.
By the way I love that you can use gradient fills with SVGs
You could actually always do this. Set your SVG fill equal to CurrentColor and animate the color property of the layer and you’re golden.
