Martin Gieseking submitted an update to the dvisvgm package. Version number: 1.7 License type: gpl Summary description: Convert DVI files to Scalable Vector Graphics format (SVG). Announcement text:
dvisvgm is a command-line utility that converts DVI files to SVG. * All DVI files are pre-processed now in order to allow the implementation of features that rely on data not available on the pages being converted. * The evaluation of hyperref specials has been improved. Internal links that reference targets on different pages are supported now. * The \special command dvisvgm:rawdef has been added. It allows to insert raw SVG fragments to the <defs> section of the SVG file. * The \special commands dvisvgm:rawset, dvisvgm:endrawset, and dvisvgm:rawput have been added. For further information, see the manual page. * dvisvgm no longer add the redundant SVG element missing-glyph to the generated SVG files. * The support of external fonts required by XDV files (DVI files created by XeTeX) has been improved. * The extent values assigned by the preview package are now correctly displayed in TeX point units. For further information including a more detailed list of 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.

For more detailed information, see the project page.
