CTAN Up­date: dvisvgm 0.7.2

Date: April 2, 2009 11:04:21 PM CEST
On Thu, 2 Apr 2009 Martin Giesek­ing sub­mit­ted an up­date to the dvisvgm pack­age. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /dvi­ware/dvisvgm Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text:
dvisvgm is a com­mand-line util­ity that con­verts DVI files to SVG. The lat­est re­lease in­tro­duces a caching mech­a­nism for vec­tor­ized bitmap fonts. The slow­est part dur­ing a DVI to SVG con­ver­sion us­ing dvisvgm is the call of Meta­font and the fol­low­ing vec­tor­iza­tion of its bitmap out­put. To in­crease the con­ver­sion speed in this area, dvisvgm now keeps in­for­ma­tion about the vec­tor­ized glyphs in cache files for fu­ture us­age. This avoids mul­ti­ple Meta­font calls for the same fonts as well as re­peated vec­tor­iza­tions of the same glyphs. To re­duce the length of font path de­scrip­tion a bit, dvisvgm now gen­er­ates SVG short­hand path com­mands if pos­si­ble. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing a list of re­cent changes and pre-com­piled bi­na­ries for Win­dows/MiKTeX see the project page http://dvisvgm.source­forge.net

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.

For more de­tailed in­for­ma­tion, see the project page.
