Tgif - Version 4.1 Patchlevel 34 Release Notes

Version 4.1 Patchlevel 34 Added Features/Bug Fixes
  1. Fix a crashing bug in drawing linearly transformed arc objects. Apparently, this bug has been around for a long time. Thanks to Hari Radhakrishnan <> for pointing out the problem.

  2. Support the JPEG export format. Add new X defaults, Tgif.XpmToJpeg and Tgif.JpegFileExtension. The default value them are "xpmtoppm %s | cjpeg" and "jpg", respectively.

  3. Add a new X default, Tgif.AutoEPSPreviewBitmap, to enable the automatic generation of a preview bitmap when importing a PS/EPS file, if the file does not contain a preview bitmap. (This can be turned on and off from the Import Submenu of the File Menu.) The feature also uses a new X default, Tgif.PsToXbm, so that the default PS/EPS to XBM filter can be overridden. The default value for Tgif.PsToXbm is:
        gs -q -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pbm -sOutputFile=- -- "%s" | pbmtoxbm

    Please note that the above command usually generates a bitmap that's much larger than image in the file. Tgif automatically trims out the blank space similar to the way pbmtoepsi works. Thanks to Ed Vigmond <> for the suggestion.
