CTAN Update: dvi2bitmap
This is (finally) version 1.0 of dvi2bitmap. dvi2bitmap is a utility to convert TeX DVI files directly to bitmaps, without going through the complicated (and slow!) route of conversion via PostScript and PNM. It consists of a C++ library plus an application which uses it. The library provides a useful object model of DVI and PK files. See also http://purl.org/nxg/dist/dvi2bitmap; repository and issue list at https://sourceforge.net/projects/dvi2bitmap/
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/dviware/dvi2bitmap/ More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/dvi2bitmap We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

dvi2bitmap – Utility to convert TeX DVI files directly to bitmaps
A utility to convert TeX DVI files directly to bitmaps, without going through the complicated (and slow!) route of conversion via PostScript and PNM. The prime motivation for this is to prepare mathematical equations for inclusion in HTML files but there are many other uses beyond that. It can generate XBM and GIF bitmaps, plus PNG, if you have the libpng library installed. It uses the same kpathsea font-searching library as other TeX programs, again as long as you have the appropriate library installed. The program is written in C++, and incidentally provides a good object interface for DVI and PK files.
