you have to wait for the mirrors to catch up

The updated version is not available at my local mirror yet either

Subject: [tex-live] how to get updated dvisvgm 1.14 on Linux as part of TL      2015?

Just saw announcement of new version of dvisvgm on comp.text.tex

Since I use this program a lot, I wanted to get the latest version.


So I just did a full update of TL 2014 on linux,

sudo /usr/local/texlive/2015/bin/x86_64-linux/tlmgr  update --all

But I do not see dvisvgm being updated. There is a new version of it. Why it
does not show up in the update? I know it is not a package, but a
program. Should this not be included? Are binaries not part of tlmgr update?

Here is the link to the updated date of dvisvgm


1.14 2015-12-28.

After the TL update it done, I still have the old version:

dvisvgm (TeX Live) 1.9.2

But the new version is 1.14

which dvisvgm

How does one get new version of dvisvgm updated as part of TL 2015?
