Karl Berry submitted an update to the epstopdf package. Version: 2.24 2016-05-28 License: other-free Summary description: Convert EPS to ‘encapsulated’ PDF using Ghostscript Announcement text:
epstopdf is a Perl script that converts EPS to PDF (or other formats) using (by default) Ghostscript. Changes in this version: New option --gray to grayscale output, thanks to William Bader; it passes -sColorConversionStrategy=Gray -dProcessColorModel=/DeviceGray to Ghostscript. The option --device is disallowed in restricted mode (previously some devices were allowed); it is still accepted (with any value) in non-restricted mode.

epstopdf – Convert EPS to PDF using Ghostscript

Epstopdf is a Perl script that converts an EPS file to an ‘encapsulated’ PDF file (a single page file whose media box is the same as the original EPS’s bounding box). The resulting file suitable for inclusion by pdf as an image. The script is adapted to run both on Windows and on Unix-alike systems.

The script makes use of Ghostscript for the actual conversion to PDF. It assumes Ghostscript version 6.51 or later, and (by default) suppresses its automatic rotation of pages where most of the text is not horizontal.

users may make use of the epstopdf package, which will run the epstopdf script “on the fly”, thus giving the illusion that pdf is accepting EPS graphic files.
