CTAN update: dvisvgm
This is a small feature release that adds support for Omega Font Metric files and implements the fallback mechanism for missing characters in OFM-based virtual fonts proposed by Takuji Tanaka. Furthermore, the new command-line option --currentcolor and the new special dvisvgm:currentcolor allow for replacing a color value with CSS variable "currentColor" which enables color changes in SVG graphics through an outer CSS color property without having to change the SVG file itself. This can be used, for example, to forward text and drawing colors from dynamic color schemes of a website. dvisvgm 3.1 also fixes some issues regarding the new, mutool-based PDF handler. Further information on this release can be found at https://dvisvgm.de.

dvisvgm – Convert DVI, EPS, and PDF files to Scalable Vector Graphics format (SVG)
Dvisvgm is a command line utility that converts TeX 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 METAFONT’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, emTeX, tpic, papersize, PDF mapfile and PostScript specials. Users will need a working TeX installation including the kpathsea library.
