Dvipdfm is a DVI to PDF translator. Its features include TeX \special's that approximate the functionality of the PostScript pdfmarks used by Adobe Acrobat Distiller, the ability to include PDF files and JPEG files as embedded images, support for both Type1 and PK fonts, support for arbitrary linear graphics transformations, a color stack accessible via \special's, partial font embedding and stream compression for reduced output file size, native, portable graphics via TPIC \specials, balanced page and destination trees for improved reader access on very large document files.
Release Notes: Version 0.13 adds support for 16 bit character sets via Omega's OFM files. The DVI and VF code has been rewritten to be 16 bit clean. Also, the data structure for the encoding has been cleanly separated from the font so that multiple encodings can be used on the same Type 1 font in the same document. This means that all glyphs in a Type 1 font can be used (even more than 256).
Release Notes: Version 0.12.9beta addresses some font problems affecting the XYPic fonts. It also tries to write font encoding objects that won't cause software such Acrobat Exchange to choke when merging PDF files. Version 0.12.8 fixes several bugs in Metapost file inclusion and colormap parsing of PDF, and attempts to support old \psfig-style graphics inclusion.
Release Notes: Version 0.12.7b fixes several bugs that have been reported recently.
Release Notes: First announcement.
