Karl Berry submitted an update to the

epstopdf

package.

Version: 2.33 2023-09-15
License: other-free

Summary description: Convert EPS to PDF using Ghostscript

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

epstopdf 2.33 fixes an error failing to recognize PATH elements on
Cygwin (separator is : on Cygwin, not 😉. Thanks to Alois Steindl.

General description: epstopdf is a Perl script that converts an EPS file
to an encapsulated PDF file (a single-page self-contained file whose
media box is the same as the original EPS's bounding box). The resulting
file is suitable for inclusion as an image. The script runs on both
Windows and Unix-ish systems.

The script makes use of Ghostscript (overridable) for the actual
conversion to PDF. By default, it suppresses Ghostscript's automatic
rotation of pages.

LaTeX users may make use of the epstopdf package, which will run the
(restricted form of the) epstopdf script on the fly, thus giving the
illusion that pdfLaTeX, etc. is accepting EPS graphic files.

Please email bug reports to te...@tug.org.
