Release Notes: A new backend for generating PowerPoint pptx was added. Handling of composite fonts, especially those with FMapType other than 2, was improved. Bounding box tracing of text was improved. The creation of filenames when using the "-split" option was changed. A bug in the detection of rectangles was fixed. Other minor changes were made.
Release Notes: A bug in the handling of the "-page" option was fixed. Support for 64-bit systems was improved. Some features for supporting the LaOS project were added.
Release Notes: A new option "-minlinewidth" was added for adjusting very thin lines to a minimal width. A new option "-pslanguagelevel" was added for easily switching the language level to be used by GhostScript. A new driver for the "Context Free" drawing tool was implemented. Some problems in handling composite fonts were fixed.
Release Notes: Several improvements were made to the PCB driver, to the mpost driver, and to the font substitution mechanism. New drivers were added for gcode (.ngc) files and for .vtk files (e.g. for ParaView). A Cairo output driver was added, which creates C code for linking against the Cairo libraries. A number of problems related to clipping and image support for the Asymptote backend were fixed. A line width problem with the xfig format was fixed. Several code adaptations were made for newer libraries and compilers. Various other enhancements and bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: Better support for pagesize handling was added to the driver framework. Better handling of fonts using 0 encoded characters was implemented. A bug in the fig backend related to dotted lines was fixed. A problem which caused newer versions of Ghostscript to go into an endless loop was fixed.
Release Notes: The Asymptote driver's compatibility to Asymptote 1.00 was fixed. Some diagnostic messages were removed.
Release Notes: Several usability improvements were introduced. Secure versions of several functions are used where possible. The code was cleaned up and a driver was included for the OpenOffice metafile format.
Release Notes: A driver was added for the AllPlan internal format. Support for PNG images was added to the Asymptote driver. A compilation problem was fixed.
Release Notes: A .asy backend for Asymptote files was added. The handling of some special characters in the LaTeX2e format driver was fixed. A bug in tracing the bounding box of raster images was fixed in the PostScript frontend. A bug in sub path handling was fixed. The resolution in the standard and free EMF driver was improved. Support for the WMF format was removed under non-Windows systems due to fundamental problems in libemf. Further minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Support for various platforms was improved. Options "-filledrecttostroke" (convert filled rectangles to simple line strokes), "-usebbfrominput" (use the BoundingBox found in the input file), and "-mergetext" (allow merging of adjacent text fragments into one single text object) were added. A bug concerning the handling of font names was fixed. Workarounds for WMF and EMF handling were added. New drivers for gschem and PCB were added. There were small fixes and enhancements to the Mathematica, SVG, HPGL, fig, and MIF backends.
