a2ps 4.14.91 released [alpha]

Item posted by Reuben Thomas <rrt> on Mon 08 Aug 2022 07:47:53 PM UTC.

This alpha release marks the return of GNU a2ps to the Translation Project.

Some other minor issues have also been fixed.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:

36c2514304132eb2eb8921252145ced28f209182  a2ps-4.14.91.tar.gz
1LQ+pPTsYhMbt09CdSMrTaMP55VIi0MP7oaa+zDvRG0  a2ps-4.14.91.tar.gz

The SHA256 checksum is base64 encoded, instead of the
hexadecimal encoding that most checksum tools default to.

Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify a2ps-4.14.91.tar.gz.sig

The signature should match the fingerprint of the following key:

  pub   rsa2048 2013-12-11 [SC]
        2409 3F01 6FFE 8602 EF44  9BB8 4C8E F3DA 3FD3 7230
  uid   Reuben Thomas <>
  uid <>

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
or that public key has expired, try the following commands to retrieve
or refresh it, and then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

  gpg --locate-external-key

  gpg --recv-keys 4C8EF3DA3FD37230

  wget -q -O- '' | gpg --import -

As a last resort to find the key, you can try the official GNU

  wget -q
  gpg --keyring gnu-keyring.gpg --verify a2ps-4.14.91.tar.gz.sig

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.16.1
  Gnulib v0.1-5347-gc0c72120f0
