CTAN update: epstopdf-pkg

Oberdiek Package Support Group submitted an update to the epstopdf-pkg package. Version number: 2.8 2019-11-27 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Call epstopdf "on the fly" Announcement text:
epstopdf v2.8 2019/11/27 epstopdf-base package is called by the core graphics package in pdftex and luatex to automate conversion of EPS files to PDF before being included into the document. The full package (which may be called directly) has many options which are not used by the core processing, and handling the options caused many packages to be loaded. Previously \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphics} \begin{document} \end{document} loaded the packages infwarerr, grfext, kvdefinekeys, ltxcmds, kvoptions, keyval, kvsetkeys, etexcmds, ifluatex, iftex, pdftexcmds The new release avoids loading packages when epstopdf-base is loaded without options and so none of the above list will be included allowing the core graphics package to only rely on this epstopdf bundle, and also the Lua portion of pdftexcmds when used with LuaTeX. All these packages are still loaded by \usepackage{epstopdf} for compatibility.

epstopdf-pkg – Call epstopdf "on the fly"

The package adds support for EPS files in the graphicx package when running under pdf. If an EPS graphic is detected, the package spawns a process to convert the EPS to PDF, using the script epstopdf. This of course requires that shell escape is enabled for the pdf run.
