Version number: 1.6
License type: gpl

Summary description: dvisvgm 1.6 has been released

Announcement text:

 dvisvgm is a command-line utility that converts DVI files to SVG.

 The recent version 1.6 is a small feature release with the
 following additions/changes:

 * Option --zoom has been added to "visually" scale the
   generated SVG graphics while preserving the original size
   and position values of the graphic objects.

 * Option --linkmark has been extended to allow to select
   the box/line color highlighting the linked areas.

 * The default value of option --linkmark has been changed from
   line to box.

 * Hyperlink markers (boxes and lines) are only split on line
   breaks while kept together in all other cases.

 * dvisvgm now looks for libgs.so.X rather than just libgs.so if
   the Ghostscript library is not directly linked to the binary.
   Supported ABI versions are X = 7, 8, and 9. 

 For further information including a more detailed list of
 changes, and pre-compiled binaries for Windows/MiKTeX, see the
