Release notes for dvipng 1.0:
This program makes PNG graphics from DVI files as obtained from TeX and its relatives.
has undergone a number of improvements and bugfixes since being first
released in the 0.x number series a year ago. The 1.0 release changes
the behaviour of the -D switch and simplifies choice of resolution
greatly (see below for details).
It has been tested to a fair
degree. Note the disclaimer in the COPYING file. Report any bugs you
find, see README for instructions.
People who are upgrading from version 0.9 or earlier should read the following:
This release changes the -D (resolution) option to specify the output resolution rather than the previous base resolution.
Changing output resolution from the default 100 dpi will now only need
the -D option, as dvipng now calculates the required magnification and
thus can render PK fonts suitable for any output resolution. There is
no need anymore to specify by hand the base resolution, the Metafont
mode, the quality, and the magnification.
If you really want to use a Metafont mode different from the default
`cx' mode, the separate --bdpi option is used for specifying the
corresponding base resolution.
In short, choosing the output
resolution has become simple even when using PK fonts (but remember,
the created PK fonts are normally cached on disk).
