I haven't finished v2.0 yet, I am working on it.
Changes so far:
* New defaults:
* The implementation is moved to package `epstopdf-base.sty'.
This package does not have package options.
Package `epstopdf.sty' is a wrapper package that accepts
Thus graphics.sty should then load epstopdf-base.sty instead
of epstopdf.sty. This avoids option clash errors:
* An additional configuration file `epstopdf-sys.cfg' is loaded
if it exists. Perhaps it helps distributors providing
another conversion rules or option settings. Then the user
can set his own options without loosing the conversion rules.
