This program makes PNG graphics from DVI files as obtained from TeX and 
its relatives.

The 1.6 release adds proper alpha channel support and xcolor support. It 
also reestablishes identification of preview-latex' tightpage mode option.

It has been tested to a fair degree. Note the disclaimer in the COPYING 
file. Report any bugs you find, see README for instructions.
