CTAN Update: dvisvgm

Martin Gieseking submitted an update to the dvisvgm package. Version: 2.7 2019-04-13 License: gpl3+ Summary description: Convert DVI, EPS, and PDF files to Scalable Vector Graphics format (SVG) Announcement text:
The main new feature of this release is the command-line option “--optimize” which allows for optimization of the generated SVG tree after it has completely been built from the DVI data. The optimizations are performed by running separate optimizer modules executed one by one in a given order and thus transforming the XML tree gradually. More detailed information on option --optimize, the currently available optimizer modules, and further enhancements of dvisvgm can be found on the project website: 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.
