GNU ghostscript 8.61.0 and 8.62.0 released

Item posted by Didier LINK <Arabidopsis> on Sun 04 May 2008 10:07:19 PM UTC.

I'm pleased to announce the availability of two new GNU Ghostscript
releases: gnu-ghostscript-8.61.0 and 8.62.0.

These releases are an adaptation of GPL Ghostscript version 8.61 and
8.62 respectively, with changes to make it compliant with GNU standards
and policies. It is available from the GNU Ghostscript project page:
http://www.gnu.org/software/ghostscript/

These releases includes many bugs fixed over GNU Ghostscript 8.60 :

  • numerous bug fixed
  • use of x11alpha for default driver if X11 is available, falling back

to bbox otherwise

  • COMPILE_INIT=1 fixes in 8.62.0 from release 8.61.0
  • tiffsep device can use more than 8 colorants
  • faster shadings, overprinting and transparency
  • fix some compatibility issues in PDF/A produced with pdfwrite device
  • fixed bug #20270 by patching src/gdevxini.c to avoid cropping issue

in gv

The release 8.61.0 contain 2 new files from the Unicode consortium and a
new License text is available in the ghostscript sources to cover
this: LICENSE.Unicode. Many thanks to Brett Smith from the FSF Licensing
service to help me to clarify the situation.

Enjoy !

For the GS and PS interested... (posted by matt badger, Sun 04 Jan 2009 11:29:05 PM UTC)

Updated GhostScript and PostScript sites are hard to find today (especially the latter..) :-)

Some link tips are this <a href="http://www.inkguides.com/postscript.asp">PostScript resource directory</a> and this <a href="http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/PostScript_FAQ">FAQ on PostScript and GhostScript</a>.

Keep on controlling the printers out there!
