GNU gv 3.6.1 has been released today. It is available for download in
the GNU ftp,

Changes on this release:

# New set of command line arguments. This solves the horrid bug on
  gv 3.6.0 that made such release nearly unusable. See the
  documentation for details about the new argument list.

# The "Reopen" entry on the File menu has been renamed to "Reload" in
  order to be coherent with the "Reload" button.

# The distributed package structure have been fixed, now conforming a
  legal GNU source package.

# The delete key now work as expected, that is, it deletes the next
  character rather the last character when typed on text entries.

# Dot files are not shown by default on file selection forms.

# If you try to open an empty file you get a coherent error

# New manual page
