I think xdvipdfmx should produce PDF-1.5,
It does, so far as I know. That's the "V 5" in dvipdfmx.cfg.
all pdfLaTeX, dvipdfmx, LuaLaTeX produce PDF-1.5 as output.
Right. This is not a coincidence.
I think the default output-driver as "xdvipdfmx -q -E" should be
changed to "xdvipdfmx -E",
The messages cited earlier in this thread seem far too verbose to be
useful to me to enable by default. A reasonable person seeing such junk
spewed out of their xetex run could not conclude "oh, that's why my
figures are blank, and so I should do xxx to fix it".
The question in my mind is what exactly was changed, and why, and is
there a workaround, and can we change it back? jjgod, khaled, someone,
please speak up? I have no way to know without trawling through all the
source changes, which I can't do today.
We also clearly need a NEWS file for dvipdfm-x, so that there is a place
for such places to be noted. Whoever makes the next user-visible change
to the program, please start one!
