AFPL Ghostscript 6.32 beta release

The AFPL Ghostscript 6.32 beta release is now available in the gs-beta package of the AFPL Ghostscript project. See http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/aladdin/tester.html for more information about test releases.

This release contains quite a number of bug fixes, as well as a security fix for the LD_RUN_PATH problem. This is probably the final beta before the 6.50 stable release. Now is the time to report any release-critical bugs!

Aladdin Ghostscript 6.0 source now in CVS

The Aladdin Ghostscript 6.0 source code has been uploaded to the CVS repository. Aside from a couple of missing symbolic links, this is identical to the tarball on the official distribution point, ftp://ftp.cs.wisc.edu/ghost/aladdin/gs600/ghostscript-6.0.tar.gz . We will be checking in bug fixes and other minor changes since the 6.0 release in the near future.

Help Wanted for Aladdin Ghostscript projects

We have a growing backlog of projects that we can't do for lack of staff. They are of varying sizes and priorities. We use the small ones to help identify people we think are ready to tackle larger ones and eventually join our developer group. Please e-mail bug-gs@aladdin.com if you'd like to help. Thanks.

Aladdin Ghostscript 6.0 bug data base on SourceForge

Aladdin Ghostscript is moving to SourceForge. As the first step, we have (mostly) moved the bug data base for the recent 6.0 release here for you to browse. (We'll add bug reports from older versions, if not fixed, as time permits.) Please be very restrained about reporting bugs: SourceForge's bug submission system doesn't yet provide a convenient way to collect all the information we need (as requested on doc/Bug-form.htm in the Ghostscript distribution), and we're still learning to use the facilities that are here. Thanks.
