CTAN update: epstopdf

Date: September 18, 2018 7:50:50 AM CEST
Karl Berry submitted an update to the epstopdf package. Version number: 2.28 License type: other-free Summary description: Convert EPS to PDF using Ghostscript Announcement text:
epstopdf 2.28 changes to output PDF version 1.5 by default. Before, it output whatever version the underlying Ghostscript or other interpreter had as default. In Ghostscript 9,25, that changed to 1.7, which would cause many warnings in the TeX world. To override the PDF version, use epstopdf --gsopt=-dCompatibilityLevel=1.7 (for example).

epstopdf – Convert EPS to PDF using Ghostscript

Epstopdf is a Perl script that converts an EPS file to an ‘encapsulated’ PDF file (a single page file whose media box is the same as the original EPS’s bounding box). The resulting file suitable for inclusion by pdf as an image. The script is adapted to run both on Windows and on Unix-alike systems.

The script makes use of Ghostscript for the actual conversion to PDF. It assumes Ghostscript version 6.51 or later, and (by default) suppresses its automatic rotation of pages where most of the text is not horizontal.

users may make use of the epstopdf package, which will run the epstopdf script “on the fly”, thus giving the illusion that pdf is accepting EPS graphic files.
