Martin Giesek­ing sub­mit­ted an up­date to the dvisvgm pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 2.6.1 Li­cense type: gpl3+ Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Con­vert DVI, EPS, and PDF files to Scal­able Vec­tor Graph­ics for­mat (SVG) An­nounce­ment text:
dvisvgm 2.6 is a small fea­ture re­lease that adds the new com­mand-line op­tion --page-hashes. It al­lows for skip­ping the con­ver­sion of a page if its con­tent hasn’t changed and the cor­re­spond­ing SVG file al­ready ex­ists. When this op­tion is given, dvisvgm com­putes a hash value from the DVI pages and adds it to the name of the SVG file to be writ­ten. As the hash value only changes if the con­tents of the DVI page change, there’s nor­mally no need to con­vert ex­ist­ing SVG files again which should speed up the con­ver­sion of large doc­u­ments sig­nif­i­cantly. For more in­for­ma­tion on this topic and fur­ther changes, see https://dvisvgm.de/News.

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.
