CTAN Update: dvisvgm 0.7.2

Date: April 2, 2009 11:04:21 PM CEST
On Thu, 2 Apr 2009 Martin Gieseking submitted an update to the dvisvgm package. Location on CTAN: /dviware/dvisvgm License type: gpl Announcement text:
dvisvgm is a command-line utility that converts DVI files to SVG. The latest release introduces a caching mechanism for vectorized bitmap fonts. The slowest part during a DVI to SVG conversion using dvisvgm is the call of Metafont and the following vectorization of its bitmap output. To increase the conversion speed in this area, dvisvgm now keeps information about the vectorized glyphs in cache files for future usage. This avoids multiple Metafont calls for the same fonts as well as repeated vectorizations of the same glyphs. To reduce the length of font path description a bit, dvisvgm now generates SVG shorthand path commands if possible. For further information including a list of recent changes and pre-compiled binaries for Windows/MiKTeX see the project page http://dvisvgm.sourceforge.net

dvisvgm – Convert DVI, EPS, and PDF files to Scalable Vector Graphics format (SVG)

Dvisvgm is a command line utility that converts DVI as well as EPS and PDF files to the XML-based Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format. It provides full font support including virtual fonts, font maps, and sub-fonts. If necessary, dvisvgm vectorizes ’s bitmap output in order to always create lossless scalable output. The embedded SVG fonts can optionally be replaced with graphics paths so that applications that do not support SVG fonts are enabled to render the graphics properly. Besides many other features, dvisvgm also supports color, em, tpic, papersize, PDF mapfile and PostScript specials. Users will need a working installation including the kpathsea library.
