CTAN update: fig2vect 1.1.0 - Yet another Fig to vector converter

Date: October 27, 2005 2:46:08 PM CEST
On Thu, 27 Oct 2005, Dirk Krause submitted an update to his fig2vect package. The fig2vect program converts figures from jFig, XFig and WinFig to MetaPost, EPS, PDF, TeX and SVG. Program highlights: - Designed for use with LaTeX/pdfLaTeX. Handling of special text is left up to LaTeX, for non-special text you can choose whether or not to use LaTeX. For text handled by LaTeX you have three choices: - Use the fonts exactly as specified in the Fig file. - Convert to use fonts in the same features (serif/sans-serif/monospaced, normal/bold, upright/italic). This allows to use the same font families in the graphics as in the document where the graphics is included. - Write no font selection commands (text contains commands itself if necessary). - X-splines are approximated by a sequence of Bezier spline segments. - Fill patterns are drawn by vector graphics operations. - Image width and height are found by inspecting graphics elements (except texts), the paper format name is not used here. Location on CTAN: /support/fig2vect Summary description: Conversion program from *.fig to *.mp, *.eps, *.pdf, *.svg and *.tex License type: bsd Announcement text:
Changed behaviour: Running with default settings the program now produces best quality instead of smallest output files. When upgrading from 1.0.x and below you should create a new fig2vect.cfg file based on fig2vect.cfg.sample. Bugfix: In earlier versions there were compilation errors when zlib or libbz2 were not found. This is fixed now.
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
