CTAN update: animate

Alexander Grahn submitted an update to the animate package. Version number: 2018-11-20 License type: lppl Summary description: Create PDF and SVG animations from graphics files and inline graphics Announcement text:
This update of the `animate' package adds support for Martin Gieseking's `dvisvgm' output driver. Now, it is possible to create self-contained, animated SVG files, that run in all modern Web browsers as stand-alone files or as embedded objects in Web pages (by means of the <object> HTML tag). Such SVG animations have the same look and usability, including optional controls, as if they were embedded in PDF. Since `dvisvgm' is linked against Ghostscript, it is able to parse and convert embedded Postscript to inline SVG code. Therefore, it is mostly compatible with the popular TikZ and PSTricks packages, which can be used to create animated content. Intermediate DVI and XDV, to be used as input for `dvisvgm' can be generated using `latex', `lualatex' in dvi mode, platex or xelatex (with option `-no-pdf'). ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/animate More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/animate We are supported by the TeX User Groups.

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Ina Dau
