On Wed, 22 Dec 2004 Martin Schröder uploaded the new version 1.20b of pdftex to CTAN. pdftex is an extension of TeX which directly generates PDF documents instead of DVI. Most TeX distributions, including teTeX, fpTeX and miktex include pdftex and pdflatex. Location on CTAN: /systems/pdftex/ Summary description: A bug fixing release of pdfTeX License type: gpl Announcement text:
pdfTeX 3.141592-1.20b was released on 2004-12-22
- Fixed some minor bugs, mostly with hz - The info line "output format initialized to PDF/DVI" isn't shown anymore, as this info wasn't reliable (bug 112). - Now the PDF-related statistics (PDF objects...) in the .log file is only shown in PDF output mode. It start with a line "PDF statistics:". - \pdfimageresolution is not limited to 2400 [dpi] anymore, can now be between 0 and 65535 [dpi]. - pdfTeX uses xpdf 3.00pl2 - pdfTeX uses libpng 1.2.8, which fixes some png-related bugs.
Thanks for the update. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
