I fully agree - very serious regression.

Release is planed after some final tests. The tarball for the new release is already created.

I'd consider this as a serious bug, can we expect a new version 3.7.1 soon?

Thabks for the bug report.

That is clearly a problem with the invocation of ghostscript, which should convert the pdf into postscript suitable for printing and saving.

Starting with 3.7.0 I'm unable to print or save any pdf document, even though viewing just works fine. If I try to print, I get the following gs error:

Error: /undefinedfilename in --findlibfile--

GPL Ghostscript 8.71: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
Warning: empty file.

and after that a gv error like:

 Failed to scan file /tmp/gv_make_ps.CK8WSR

Some remarks:
- printing/saving works with ps files
- all options are set to defaults
- everything works with gv version 3.6.9
