Please see also the discussion in bug #55486.

IMHO if someone really wants to add support for rasterizing vector formats (through gostscript or whatever), it'd better be done in a separate function, and let imread keep on reading pixels only.

FWIW, imread and related functions in Matlab seem to only support raster graphics. Vector graphics don't seem to be supported at least for R2016a on Windows:

Anyway if someone wants to implement imread for vector graphics (incl. svg), I won't oppose.

I think you are referring to the imformats, imread, and imwrite functions, is that correct?

Yes.

It's a little unclear what this bug report refers to. For example, Octave can definitely print figures to SVG as an output format.

I think you are referring to the imformats, imread, and imwrite functions, is that correct?

We need to support .svg format images such it's widely used , even the logo for Octave in gnu.org website is in .svg format (see https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/img/octave-logo.svg).

I know it's hard because the svg is a very complex specification but It's also used alot , at least change the format of logo to another format that's supported by the program it presents. (don't do that plz xD)
