CTAN update: dvisvgm

Date: November 2, 2018 1:10:16 PM CET
Martin Gieseking submitted an update to the dvisvgm package. Version number: 2.6.1 License type: gpl3+ Summary description: Convert DVI, EPS, and PDF files to Scalable Vector Graphics format (SVG) Announcement text:
dvisvgm 2.6 is a small feature release that adds the new command-line option --page-hashes. It allows for skipping the conversion of a page if its content hasn’t changed and the corresponding SVG file already exists. When this option is given, dvisvgm computes a hash value from the DVI pages and adds it to the name of the SVG file to be written. As the hash value only changes if the contents of the DVI page change, there’s normally no need to convert existing SVG files again which should speed up the conversion of large documents significantly. For more information on this topic and further changes, see https://dvisvgm.de/News.

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.

For more detailed information, see the project page.
