Name: transfig Distribution: SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP4
Version: 3.2.8b Vendor: openSUSE
Release: bp154.1.1 Build date: Fri Oct 29 20:08:10 2021

Summary: Graphic Converter
TransFig is a set of tools for creating TeX documents with graphics
that are portable in the sense that they can be printed in a wide
variety of environments.

The transfig directory contains the source for the transfig command
which generates a Makefile which translates Fig code to various
graphics description languages using the fig2dev program.  In previous
releases, this command was implemented as a shell script.

    o Use deflate to embed image data into eps output, often substantially
      reducing file size.
    o Embed pdf files into ps output by converting the pdf to eps.

  - Update to fig2dev version 3.2.7 (Patchlevel 7b (Oct 2019)
    o A X color database is not needed, but can be provided. The location of
      the database can be given at compile time, default /etc/X11/rgb.txt.
    Ticket numbers refer to
    Debian bug numbers refer to
    o Do not clip objects with line-thickness 0 having arrows. Ticket #53.
    o Do not segfault on circle/half circle arrowheads with a magnification
      larger 42. Always draw circle arrowheads with 40 points. Ticket #52.
    o Allow circles or ellipses with negative radii. Ticket #49.
    o Avoid "dimension too large error" with tikz output by avoiding
      coordinate values smaller than -16383.
    o Make tests (test1.c) work with -fsanitize=address compiler option.
    o Obey join-style of lines in tikz output.
    o Pass utf8-strings to svg output, escape some chars (<>&).
    o Accept inclined boxes and change them to polygons. Fixes ticket #43.
    o Make tests #27 and #33 work on Mac Darwin, failed due to whitespace
      formatting differences. From Hanspeter Niederstrasser. Ticket #40.
    o Use only latex, neither etex or tex, to test tikz output. Usage of
      etex, after hint from Roland Rosenfeld, closed debian bug 920368.
    o For tikz output, do not draw arrows on a single point line.
    o Omit spurious showpage when including jpg-file. From Rainer Buchty.
    o Correct a few memory leaks and corruptions. See commit d1c54f6.
    o Change negative color numbers to default color. Fixes ticket #30.
    o A spline with one point would cause segfault. Fixed, see ticket #29.
    o Allow one char without newline in the last line of an input file.
      Fixes ticket #28.
    o Harden input, mainly against files in which an incomplete object would
      be created and freeing the object would violate memory, i.e, it may
      cause segfault. See, e.g., ticket #27.
    o Properly initalize line storage when reading fig files version 1.3.
      Would segfault when reading incomplete line and trying to free it.
      Fixes ticket #26, debian bug 906743.
    o Silently ignore the hundred-first and more comment lines. This
      fixes ticket #25 and debian bug 906740.
    o Use SetFigFont, not SetFigFontNFSS in pictex output. Fixes .
    o Accept blanks in color names (e.g., fig2dev -L eps -g"Misty Rose"..).
    o Correct typos in man-pages, debian 30_man_typo.patch.

    o Make test "survive debian bug #890016" succeed on 32 bit systems.
    o Distribute the X bitmaps files within fig2dev, no need to install
      these files. The files were needed for Tk and Perl/Tk output.
    o Add option -w, wrap (create stand-alone perl file) for Perl/Tk output.
    o Update help text: Output help for dxf and textyl output language,
      add description of -g option for Tk/Tcl and Perl/Tk output, allow -f
      option for pstex_t and pdftex_t output language.
    o Sanitize input. Do not segfault on malformed input files. Fixes debian
      bugs 881143, 881144, 881396, 890015, 890016, 882021 and also 882022.
    o Do not put an %%Orientation: comment into PostScript output. Some
      viewers would rotate the resulting file, others not.
    o Fix build on NetBSD, which has a _setmode() function different from
      _setmode() on Windows. Ticket #17. Also, avoid alloca(). Ticket #16.
    o tikz output: Omit the semicolon after \pgftext[..]{...};.
    o Define PostScript patterns with larger tiles, may render better. #13
    o Fix build in case libXpm is missing. Ticket #15.
    o Use netpbm programs instead of ghostscript, to produce smaller files.
    o Correctly embed eps files with binary preview (epsi, typically
      found on Microsoft systems). Also, allow to embed ps-files. Fixes
      debian bug 248807, ticket #8.
    o For compilation, do not depend on PATH_MAX being defined.
  - Remove patches now upstream

      o Enable reproducible build for svg output.
      o Set the creator to fig2dev, not to the path by which fig2dev is
      Ticket numbers refer to
      o The svg output now produces correct patterns and pie-wege arcs.
      Property names instead of style attributes are used. Hollow arrow
      heads are really hollow, not filled with white. In the PostScript
      output, this might also clip a bit of the filling underneath an arrow.
      o tikz output: Re-use \dimen \XFigu if it is already defined. Ticket #3.
      o tikz output: A pattern in an object with line width zero and the
      stroke color equal to the fill color would produce a white fill.
      The tikz output now does not try to be smart and puts a pattern, even
      if the result is equal to a solid fill. Ticket #1.
      o pict2e output: Standalone tex-files always include color.sty. #2.
      o pict2e output: A pattern with stroke color equal to fill color is
      rendered as a solid fill.

      only scale coordinates, not line widths; Do not set unnecessarily
      \color{black} on text.
    From Roland Rosenfeld <>
