[metapost] Previewing an SVG generated by METAPOST

With v1.8, METAPOST allows one to create an SVG --- unfortunately, there
aren't any TeX / code editors which have SVG previewers as far as I can



but it seems to be broken in Windows 10 --- one has to switch to its window
and press F5 --- is there an updated version of this program, or some other
easy way to preview an SVG?

An application with nice tools for this would be welcome.

BTW, the file:

outputtemplate := "%j-%c.svg"; prologues := 3; outputformat := "svg";
beginfig(1); z0 = (0,0); z1 = (60,40); z2 = (40,90); z3 = (10,70); z4 = (
30,45); draw z0..z1..z2..z3--z4--cycle endfig; end

is clipped at the top --- should it be?
