GNU Ghostscript 8.01 release

Item posted by Andy Tai <atai> on Sat 14 Feb 2004 09:30:58 PM UTC.

This is to announce the release of GNU Ghostscript
version 8.01.

GNU Ghostscript is an interpreter for the Postscript
language and the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF),
a set of C procedures (the Ghostscript lib) that
implements the graphics capabilities that appear as
primitive operations in the Postscript language and in
PDF, and a set of utility programs that include the
ability to convert PostScript to PDF.

The main changes since the last release (7.07b) are
support for DeviceN colorspaces, up to 8 colorants
total at 8 bits per component. Also, pdfwrite has
seen considerable improvement in font handling, and
many other bug fixes.

GNU Ghostscript is based on the GPLed Ghostscript made
by Ralph Giles, artofcode LLC and Artifex Software,
Inc. Thanks to Ralph's hard work for making this
release of Ghostscript possible.

GNU Ghostscript is maintained by Andy
Tai, For bugs or issues regarding the
GNU version of Ghostscript, please send them to or Please do
not contact artofcode LLC or Ralph Giles for bugs or
support issues in this version of Ghostscript as they
are not responsible for it.
