Summary description: Convert DVI files to Scalable Vector Graphics
format (SVG).

Announcement text:

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

* All DVI files are pre-processed now in order to allow the
  implementation of features that rely on data not available on the
  pages being converted.

* The evaluation of hyperref specials has been improved. Internal links
  that reference targets on different pages are supported now.

* The \special command dvisvgm:rawdef has been added. It allows to
  insert raw SVG fragments to the <defs> section of the SVG file.

* The \special commands dvisvgm:rawset, dvisvgm:endrawset, and
  dvisvgm:rawput have been added. For further information, see the
  manual page.

* dvisvgm no longer add the redundant SVG element missing-glyph to the
  generated SVG files.

* The support of external fonts required by XDV files (DVI files
  created by XeTeX) has been improved.

* The extent values assigned by the preview package are now correctly
  displayed in TeX point units. 

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