CTAN update: dvisvgm

Date: August 25, 2005 10:30:06 AM CEST
On Wed, 24 Aug 2005, Martin Gieseking submitted an update to the dvisvgm package. Dvisvgm is a command line utility that converts TeX DVI files to the XML-based Scalable Vector Graphics format. New feature in this release: Fonts that are not available as PFB files are now vectorized by tracing Metafont's bitmap output. This function is not perfect yet but already usable.

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.
