On Wed, 1 Jun 2005 Dirk Krause submitted a new package 


to CTAN.

Name of contribution: fig2vect-1.0.0
Location on CTAN: /support/fig2vect
Summary description: Yet another Fig to vector converter
License type: bsd

Announcement text:
The fig2vect program converts figures from jFig, XFig and
WinFig to MetaPost, EPS, PDF, TeX and SVG.
The primary web site for source and docu is
http://fig2vect.sourceforge.net .
Program highlights:
 - Designed for use with LaTeX/pdfLaTeX. Handling of
   special text is left up to LaTeX, for non-special text
   you can choose whether or not to use LaTeX.
   For text handled by LaTeX you have three choices:
    - Use the fonts exactly as specified in the Fig file.
    - Convert to use fonts in the same features
      (serif/sans-serif/monospaced, normal/bold,
      This allows to use the same font families in
      the graphics as in the document where the
      graphics is included.
    - Write no font selection commands (text contains
      commands itself if necessary).
 - X-splines are approximated by a sequence of Bezier
   spline segments.
 - Fill patterns are drawn by vector graphics operations.
 - Image width and height are found by inspecting
   graphics elements (except texts), the paper format
   name is not used here.

Thanks for the upload.
