Version number: 1.15
License type: lgpl

Summary description: A fast DVI to PNG/GIF converter.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

 This is a bugfix release that removes the unnecessarily long
 delay in --follow mode and a few segfaults on out-of-memory or
 missing standard-latex files, and adds some documentation
 improvements. It also removes support for libt1, which is
 reportedly not developed anymore, and not needed since Freetype
 does a much better job.
