./print/fig2dev, Convert .fig files to graphical or printable formats

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.2.7bnb1, Package name: fig2dev-3.2.7bnb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

You need the fig2dev program in addition to xfig to be complete.
Xfig saves figures in its own, proprietary .fig format. The fig2dev
program allows you to print and export figures. Fig2dev translates
the .fig files to various languages and formats such as PostScript,
png, jpeg, pstricks, tikz, etc.


Required to run:
[print/ghostscript] [graphics/png] [x11/libXpm]

fig2dev: Update to 3.2.7b

Patchlevel 7b (Oct 2019)

NEW FEATURES:
	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.

BUGS FIXED:
	Ticket numbers refer to https://sourceforge.net/p/mcj/tickets/#.
	Debian bug numbers refer to https://bugs.debian.org/#.
	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
	  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour … ug/1359485 .
	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.

-------------------------------------
Patchlevel 7a (May 2018)

NEW FEATURES:
	o Add option -w, wrap (create stand-alone perl file) for Perl/Tk output.
	o Distribute the X bitmaps files within fig2dev, no need to install
	  these files. The files were needed for Tk and Perl/Tk output.

BUGS FIXED:
	Ticket numbers refer to https://sourceforge.net/p/mcj/tickets/#.
	o Fix regression whereupon flipped ellipses were not read. Ticket #23.
	o Distribute i18n files ru_RU.CP1251.ps and uk_UA.KOI8-U.ps.
	o Make test "survive debian bug #890016" succeed on 32 bit systems.

NEW FEATURES:
	o Print language-specific help text by using fig2dev -L lang -h.
	o Add option -M, multipage, for MetaPost output language.
	o Add option -P, pagemode, and -z to choose a pagesize for pdf output.
	o Add option -W (scaling of figures not possible) for tikz.
	o Add option -b, border width, for LaTeX output language.
	o Add option -f for pstex_t and pdftex_t output language.
	o Add uk_UA and ru_RU encodings for PostScript output. Ticket #12.

BUGS FIXED:
	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.

	Debian bug numbers refer to https://bugs.debian.org/#.
	Ticket numbers refer to https://sourceforge.net/p/mcj/tickets/#.
	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.

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.
