Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 145317
old version of xdvi
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:05:28 EDT
The version of xdvi which comes with FC3 is: xdvik version 22.40v
(see "xdvi --version").
This is a very old version. The latest version of xdvik is 22.84.8,
It would be very desirable to have 22.84.8 installed in FC3
rather than 22.40v; for instance, 22.84.8 implements string
search in dvi file, which is extremely useful, and 22.40v does
Thomas Esser announced that it's likely that teTeX-3.0 will be
released after this weekend. I'm preparing now for the release of the
new teTeX version so I think it's better to wait a bit for the new
release (where is one of the latest versions of xdvik) than to update
it in 2.0.2. I'll close this bug after teTeX with a new xdvik is built.
Thanks for the bugreport,
Please check teTeX-3.0, where we have xdvi 22.84.9.
