Date: Fe­bru­ary 22, 2010 2:53:15 PM CET
On Sun, 21 Feb 2010, Ralf An­geli sub­mit­ted an up­date to the pre­view pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Ex­tract bits of a LaTeX source as graph­ics Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text:
The main pur­pose of the pre­view pack­age is the ex­trac­tion of se­lected el­e­ments from a LaTeX source, like for­mu­las or im­ages, into sep­a­rate pages of a DVI file. This works with DVI files post­pro­cessed by ei­ther Dvips and Ghostscript or dvipng, but it also works when you are us­ing PDFTeX for gen­er­at­ing PDF files. Cur­rent uses of the pack­age in­clude the pre­view-la­tex pack­age for WYSIWYG func­tion­al­ity in the AUCTeX edit­ing en­vi­ron­ment, gen­er­a­tion of pre­views in LyX, as part of the op­er­a­tion of the ps4pdf pack­age, the tbook XML sys­tem and some other tools. The pre­view pack­age is be­ing de­vel­oped along and dis­tributed with pre­view-la­tex. With the in­te­gra­tion of pre­view-la­tex into AUCTeX as of ver­sion 11.81, the pre­view pack­age be­came part of AUCTeX as well. It can there­fore be ob­tained as part of AUCTeX dis­tri­bu­tion files avail­able at <URL:ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/auc­tex/>. CTAN pro­vides the stan­dalone pre­view pack­age at <CTAN:macros/la­tex/con­trib/pre­view>. For more in­for­ma­tion about the pre­view pack­age please re­fer to the home page of AUCTeX at <URL:http://www.gnu.org/soft­ware/auc­tex/>. Ver­sion 11.86 of the pre­view pack­age adds sup­port for XeTeX.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/pre­view/ . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=pre­view (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

pre­view – Ex­tract bits of a source for out­put

The pack­age is a free-stand­ing part of the pre­view-la­tex bun­dle. The pack­age pro­vides the sup­port pre­view-la­tex needs, when it chooses the mat­ter it will pre­view. The out­put may rea­son­ably be ex­pected to have other uses, as in html trans­la­tors, etc.
