Summary description: Convert DVI, EPS, and PDF files to Scalable Vector 
Graphics format (SVG)

Announcement text:

dvisvgm 2.6 is a small feature release that adds the new command-line 
option --page-hashes. It allows for skipping the conversion of a page if 
its content hasn’t changed and the corresponding SVG file already exists. 
When this option is given, dvisvgm computes a hash value from the DVI 
pages and adds it to the name of the SVG file to be written. As the hash 
value only changes if the contents of the DVI page change, there’s 
normally no need to convert existing SVG files again which should speed up 
the conversion of large documents significantly. For more information on 
this topic and further changes, see https://dvisvgm.de/News.
