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

and policies.  It is available from the GNU Ghostscript project page:

These releases includes many bugs fixed over GNU Ghostscript 8.60 :

  to bbox otherwise

  • faster shadings, overprinting and transparency
  • fix some compatibility issues in PDF/A produced with pdfwrite device

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
