Name        : dvisvgm
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 1.0.8
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://dvisvgm.sourceforge.net
Summary     : 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:

This maintenance release fixes a couple of PostScript-related positioning issues. The most important changes are:

* Evaluation of PS operators save, restore, and grestoreall has been added.
* A potential memory issue triggered by invisible zero-length PS paths has been fixed.
* The computation of the current drawing position influenced by PS and DVI actions has been improved.
* Metafont no longer stops the conversions on errors in order to finish the convertion of buggy MF fonts properly.
