AutoTrace is a program for converting bitmaps to vector graphics. The aim of the AutoTrace project is the development of a freely-available application similar to CorelTrace or Adobe Streamline. In some aspects it is already better. Originally being created as a plugin for the GIMP, AutoTrace is now a standalone program and can be compiled on any UNIX platform using GCC.
Release Notes: Frontline is a GNOME/GTK+ based GUI front end for AutoTrace that allows users to set trace options via a GUI and preview trace results quickly.
Release Notes: A compile time error which appeared when using the --without-pstoedit option, a bug related to centerline tracing, and bugs in the output of dr2d and dxf have been fixed. The name of the tracing option structure field (width_weight_factor) has been changed. This means that source compatibility is broken.
Release Notes: The interface between pstoedit and autotrace was improved. Library level pstoedit support was added. The autotrace library was built as a shared library. The output produced when background-color is used was corrected. The license of the sources files input and output was changed to the GNU Lesser Public License (LGPL). The libautotrace version number in now checked autotrace.m4. Output in the dr2d format can now be produced. config.h was introduced. thin-image was corrected. The code was made more portable. A bug in fitting was corrected. Line width is now recognized.
Release Notes: Some bugs in the filtering routine, PDF export, despeckle, and EMF export have been fixed. There is a better error handling mechanism, an RPM spec file template, pkgconfig support, and a man page.
Release Notes: Fixes for lowercase/uppercase problems, a fix for SWF export, new MIF and cgm export, and code rearrangements.
