I am pleased to announce that GNU gv has been released today. It is available for download in the GNU ftp, .

Changes in this version:

# gv-update-userconfig now offers the options -n resp. -N to switch to an alternative navigation: After each page switch (except if selected by the page number) the page is scrolled to   the top (if switching forward) resp. the bottom (if switching backward).

# gv-update-userconfig can remove the resources inserted by -n resp. -N with the new option -s.

# Support for encrypted PDF files. New command line switch "--password=PASSWORD" for opening encrypted PDFs. If the password
is not supplied via command line, the user will be asked to enter it.

# Support for files > 2GB on file systems with large file support.

? Interactive prompting for the password of encrypted PDF files do not work if and only if DSC is turned off. As a workarouund, you can load the file with DSC turned on and then turn DSC off.
