Hi,

There is a new feature + manual, for those who love obscure mechanisms.

  http://www.pragma-ade.com/general/manuals/xmanipulate.pdf

Even if you dislike manipulations ... the manual mixes iwona and the new 
condensed latin modern monospace font.

The preprocess feature is only supported by newtexexec. If you want to 
automatically run newtexexec instead of texexec, you need to set the 
environment variable TEXMFSTART_MODE to 'experimental' assuming that you 
use texmfstart as stub; for those who are not familiar with that:

windows: texexec.bat

@echo off
texmfstart texexec.pl %*

unix: texexec (shell script)

#!/bin/sh
texmfstart texexec.pl $@

(using texmfstart is a guarantee against changes in the policies of 
distributions with regards to scripts)

Anyhow, the new feature concerns

- preprocessing of files (e.g. recode for tex files or xslt-ing for xml 
files)
- graphic manipulations (downsampling and beyond)
