CTAN Update: fig2vect 1.1.8

Date: May 31, 2007 5:04:18 PM CEST
On Thu, 31 May 2007, Dirk Krause submitted an update to the 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: Yet another Fig to vector converter. License type: bsd Announcement text:
1.1.6: Bugfix in the mmp output driver 1.1.7: Support for UTF-8 encoded text in Fig files 1.1.8: Option -a allows to create an output file name automatically based on the input file name and the output driver. Note: the default for text handling changed. If your system uses UTF-8 encoding (i.e. LANG=``de_DE.utf-8'') fig2vect attempts to UTF-8 decode all texts. If you use jFig you must turn this off because jFig already decodes keyboard events and saves text correctly. For details see the http://fig2vect.sourceforge.net/faq.html#h4utf8setdef fig2vect FAQ.
