Martin Gieseking submitted an update to the dvisvgm package. Version: 2.3 2017-12-28 License: gpl3+ Summary description: Convert DVI files to Scalable Vector Graphics format (SVG) Announcement text:
dvisvgm is a command-line utility that converts DVI and EPS files to SVG. The recent version 2.3 adds experimental support for the ttfautohint library (https://www.freetype.org/ttfautohint). ttfautohint usually creates better results than the FontForge autohinter which dvisvgm uses by default if you call it with option "--font-format=woff,autohint", for example. For more information and pre-compiled binaries for Windows/MiKTeX, see the project page http://dvisvgm.bplaced.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.
