Name        : dvisvgm
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 1.0.1
Release     : 1.fc12
URL         : http://dvisvgm.sourceforge.net
Summary     : A DVI to SVG converter
Description :
dvisvgm is a command line utility that converts DVI files, as created by
TeX/LaTeX, to the XML-based scalable vector graphics format SVG. Besides
the basic DVI command set, dvisvgm also supports various special sets, like
color, PostScript and TPIC.

Fonts that are only available as Metafont source are automatically vectorized
so that the generated SVG is freely scalable without loss of quality.

Update Information:

Version 1.0 introduces the following new features:  * dvisvgm now supports the
conversion of multiple pages.  * Transparency operators in DVI PostScript
specials are recognized and translated to corresponding SVG attributes.  * The
PostScript handler has been improved to convert a wider range of PostScript
code.  * A DVI special to compute local bounding boxes has been added.  * The
optional progress indicator has been improved.  * The new option --color can be
used to colorize dvisvgm's message output.    For further information see
