Ghostscript v8.63 updated - CUPS support fixed

November 17, 2008 by Mark Dodel

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Mark Dodel

Paul Smedley has updated Ghostscript to v8.63.
http://www.smedley.info/os2ports/

"Ghostscript for OS/2 & eCS

Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript (TM) language. A
PostScript interpreter usually takes as input a set of graphics commands.
The output is usually a page bitmap which is then sent to an output device
such as a printer or display. PostScript is embedded in many printers.

Ghostscript has several main uses:

1. Display a PostScript file (avoid killing trees).
2. Display a PostScript file to decide if you really need to print it
(reduce the number of trees killed).
3. Print a PostScript file to a non-PostScript printer (kill more trees).



History:

* Necessary device support for CUPS is included - be sure to modify
path entry in /cups/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster if upgrading CUPS
* Added jbig support - fixes some PDFs that previously showed up blank
(Oct 10th build)
* Compiled with GCC 4.3.2 (Oct 10th build)
* Fixed CUPS support (Nov 16th build)"
