My recent interest in Skim development is connected with my posts on the user mailing list regarding postscript conversion. I got frustrated with the inability of Preview and Skim to convert ps output from emacs "properly".
I have created my own version of Skim that uses the ghostscript API for converting ps to pdf, since the Apple one does not work as I want. What I have done is not of production quality yet, and may never be. I am well aware that this is probably of limited interest to the community at large. The use of postscript these days is limited as compared with pdf.
However, I do regard Apple's implementation of postscript to pdf as broken. Whatever the postscript standard may say, whenever one finds multiple postscript viewer/converters that handle output from emacs ps-* printing well, while Apple's converter does not, well: f**k that. Apple's implementation is just b0rken.
Skim rocks, though. I love it; never use Preview if I can help it. I just had to roll-my-own to view ps files.
