    Release Notes: This release changes raw PostScript processing to avoid the non-rendering PostScript specials created by hyperref. A command-line switch to turn off raw PostScript rendering has been added. Finally, a few bugs have been fixed, such as correct decoding of the -T switch, a CRLF bug when reading configuration files in Windows, and a few bugs associated with subprocesses.

      Release Notes: This release adds the possibility to report the output image width. Other than that, a segfault occurring from faulty DVIs has been removed, and a number of build issues have been corrected.

        Release Notes: The main code addition is to allow usage of recent versions of the xcolor package, which also will reenable much of the PSTricks package. Still, dvipng can only handle drawing PostScript code at the moment, not PostScript code intended to make dvips + gs scale, rotate, or move DVI glyphs (characters). This is because the graphics state cannot be communicated back to dvipng from gs. So there are no guarantees. Also, the performance in terms of runtime could be better. Other changes include a fix for inclusion of bitmaps with transparent background, and a typo in the file-handling code on machines that do not have mmap.

          Release Notes: This is a regression fix for version 1.10. In version 1.10, the main code addition is limited support for literal PostScript specials using gs. For example, most of the PSTricks package can now be rendered using dvipng. Unfortunately, dvipng can only handle drawing PostScript code at the moment, not PostScript code intended to make dvips and gs scale, rotate, or move DVI glyphs (characters), so there are no guarantees.

              Release Notes: This release adds CJK (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) support. More specifically, it adds support for the subfonts used in the CJK-latex package. TrueType fonts have been tested somewhat more, and the ttfonts.map file is now used, if present on the system. It also fixes a few bugs, most notably a version problem with Freetype < 2.1.8 and a graphics inclusion bug for non-.-paths.

                Release Notes: The release adds the ability to include bitmapped images (PNG, JPEG, and GIF), and changes PostScript inclusion so that the image is not cropped to the bounding box (unless requested) and has a transparent background. For performance reasons, the output image is now true color if an image is included. The output quality is substantially improved when using the Freetype font library. A few bugs were fixed and the internal color cache for better performance was enhanced.
