Version 8.11 (2003-08-16)

Ghostscript 8.11 is the first stable release since 8.00, building on the features in the 8.10 beta, and with numerous additional fixes and improvements. In particular, font rendering is greatly improved (thanks to Igor Melichev's new hinting code), PDF 1.4 transparency rendering is much more likely to be correct, and there is better support for CID font substitution. Processing of incorrect and broken PDF files is also improved, including files corrupted xref tables and non-ASCII font names. Many other smaller fixes are included.

Users may want to experiment with the new -dAlignToPixels=0 setting, which enables subpixel positioning for antialiased font rendering.

The following bugs.ghostscript.com numbers were open at the time of this release:

405501, 406273, 414947, 430175, 446344, 456692, 458261, 458775, 458780, 459647, 463688, 465936, 487460, 487953, 493348, 509829, 526099, 526491, 530011, 535366, 535932, 542629, 553187, 555072, 558151, 558435, 563287, 572865, 578865, 592160, 592837, 595760, 600288, 601336, 602263, 603934, 604722, 605830, 607425, 607850, 610478, 611898, 614298, 617077, 617523, 624515, 626295, 628110, 629335, 634036, 634358, 636210, 645316, 651644, 656414, 656510, 664484, 667301, 669654, 674241, 674417, 674418, 677324, 677383, 677430, 680301, 681469, 684778, 684866, 685335, 686746, 686747, 686750, 686752, 686765, 686770, 686778, 686779, 686782, 686788, 686789, 686796, 686803, 686813, 686815, 686816, 686817, 686819, 686822, 686824, 686833, 686834, 686837, 686839, 686841, 686842, 686843, 686844, 686845, 686850, 686852, 686853, 686860, 686863, 686865, 686867, 686873, 686877, 686883, 686885, 686889, 686892, 686896, 686897, 686902, 686903, 686904, 686908, 686909, 686919, 686930, 686931, 686933, 686936, 686937, 686938, 686943, 686944, 686946, 686947, 686948, 686949, 686950, 686951, 686952, 686953, 686954, 686956, 686957, 686958, 686959, 686961, 686963, 686966, 686975, 686978, 686980, 686981, 686990, 686996, 686998, 686999, 687000.

Incompatible changes

The mechanism for locating resources has changed since 8.00. See the usage documentation for details of the new mechanism.

Ghostscript now runs in save level 1 by default, which has changed since 8.10. Jobservers will need to use the -dNOOUTERSAVE option to restore the old behavior.

A pair of fixes for Bug 686791   Device bitcmyk produces wrong output
The bitcmyk device produce the wrong output if GrayValues=8.  In this
case the pixel size is 32 bits.  The encode_color procedure was sign
extending the  MSB into the upper 32 bits of 64 bit gx_color_indexes.
The fix in gdevbit.c prevents this from happening.  The fix in gdevm32.c
makes it so that it does not matter.  I am including both for
completeness.  The bitcmyk device should not produce garbage in the
remaining bits.  Thus the first fix.  However there may be other
devices with this problem so I am including the fix in gdevm32.c.

Bump version number after the 8.10 release.

[doc/News.htm 1.130, lib/gs_init.ps 1.91, src/gscdef.c 1.36, src/version.mak 1.63]

Version 8.10 (2003-05-21)

The 8.10 release is an incremental release from 8.00. It contains some fairly substantial reworking of important modules, most notably in the font rendering. Because of the extent of the changes, we're labelling this as a beta release. It should be quite usable, but it hasn't been as thoroughly wrung out as our production releases.

The major new feature improved font rendering by Igor Melichev. The new font renderer prevents dropouts intelligently rather than relying on "fill_adjust" (which has the side effect of making the font bolder).

In addition, pdfwrite continues to evolve and improve. Most patterns and type 3 fonts are now output as high-level objects rather than being rasterized.

This is our first release with support for JBIG2 encoded images, using our jbig2dec library. This decoder is not yet complete, but successfully decodes many PDF files containing JBIG2 images.

This release also contains an important security fix. If you are using Ghostscript in a security-critical application, we recommend you upgrade now.

Finally, we include the usual bug fixes and improvements. Please exercise this release thoroughly, so we can make the next release rock-solid.

The following bugs.ghostscript.com numbers were open at the time of this release:

405501, 406273, 414947, 414985, 430175, 446344, 456692, 458261, 458775, 458780, 459647, 463688, 465936, 487460, 487953, 493348, 505429, 509829, 526099, 526491, 530011, 535366, 535752, 535932, 538033, 542629, 553187, 555072, 558151, 558435, 563287, 570772, 572865, 578838, 578865, 592160, 592837, 592841, 592930, 595760, 600288, 601336, 602263, 603934, 604722, 605830, 607425, 607850, 610478, 611898, 614298, 617077, 617523, 621267, 623292, 624515, 626059, 626295, 628110, 629335, 633299, 634036, 634358, 636210, 637850, 645316, 651644, 654532, 656414, 656510, 664484, 667301, 669654, 674241, 674390, 674417, 674418, 677324, 677383, 677430, 677573, 680301, 681469, 684778, 684866, 685335, 686746, 686747, 686750, 686752, 686768, 686770, 686777, 686778, 686779, 686782, 686784, 686785, 686788, 686789, 686791, 686796, 686803, 686805, 686813, 686815, 686816, 686817, 686819, 686821, 686822, 686823, 686824, 686827, 686829, 686833, 686834, 686837, 686839, 686841, 686842, 686843, 686844, 686845, 686850, 686852, 686853, 686859, 686860, 686861, 686863, 686865, 686867, 686869, 686871, 686873, 686876, 686877, 686878, 686880, 686881.

dumphint is a new utility to print (to stdout) linearized PDF hint tables in

specification has been observed in PDF files produced by Acrobat suite
of products.

(1) /P (page offset hint table) key in hint stream dictionary has never been
    generated by Adobe products. It is no longer required in PDF 1.5.
(2) Per-page items 4 and 5 of the page offset hint table start from 1st
    page, not 2nd page as the spec claims.
(3) All array entries start from the new byte boundary.

Initial commit of native MacOS font loading. This implements a %macresource% iodevice for

(e.g. .dfont format font files) can be read on any platform. This code is currently disabled.

Correct a serious error in the bmp file padding method. Also convert all error
output to stdout from stderr since we no longer output the diff image to stdout.
Patch from Igor Melichev.

2003-03-14 01:55 Ralph Giles

The code for writing the BMP header made assumptions about struct
packing and was not portable. Replace the previous code with a method
that writes fields one at a time. Also, since fseek() is reported not to
work beyond the end of the written file, pad out the length of the image
data section so we can fill in the rows in proper bottom-to-top order.

Note that the bmp output code does not convert RGB to BGR; this is not
critical as the output is only used for hilighting differences.

Closes bug #686739.

pdfwrite : Account GlyphNames2Unicode while creating ToUnicode CMaps for simple fonts.

2003-02-12 02:16 Ralph Giles

Initial implementation of the /JBIG2Decode filter. This adds a '$(PSD)jbig2.dev'
FEATURE_DEV which links in the libjbig2dec decoder library. This version does
not support the optional /JBIG2GLOBALS parameter for sharing information between
page images. However, it is still useful as this parameter has been empty in
the files we've seen. The feature in enabled for the autoconf build if the
decoder library is found on the system, and remains optional with the other builds.

2002-12-17 18:24 Jack Moffitt

Update test scripts to omit -rXXX parameter for pdfwrite, instead of using
-r720 explicitly, so that it uses the default behavior.

2002-12-17 17:54 Jack Moffitt

of seeking 20 bytes forward.
Fixes SourceForge bug #646809, customer #1060 "/typecheck in --add--" 
Fixes SourceForge bug #641280, customer  #780 "/typecheck in --add--"

2002-12-05 00:29 Ray Johnston (details)

Adjust comments to reflect the current status (which FDSelect format can
possibly overflow the operand stack) and add comments to identify which
format corresponds to each procedure.

2002-12-04 19:50 Ray Johnston (details)

Handling of OpenType (OTTO) fonts with CFF fonts inside would fail if the
CFF table was not the first table in the table directory. Also stack
overflow could occur when building the FDSelect array. Now Asian fonts
sold by Adobe (as OpenType .otf fonts) can be used with Ghostscript.

(note new History8.htm file).

Version 8.00 (2002-11-21)

This is the 8.00 release of AFPL Ghostscript. The most significant new feature since 7.0x is support for DeviceN colorspaces, up to 8 colorants total at 8 bits per component. Also, pdfwrite has seen considerable improvement in font handling, and many other bug fixes.

The following SourceForge bug numbers were open at the time of this release: 405342, 407342, 414947, 414985, 446344, 458261, 458775, 458780, 459647, 465936, 484752, 484753, 487953, 493348, 505429, 510808, 526099, 526491, 530011, 535366, 535752, 535836, 538033, 539239, 546823, 554076, 558151, 558435, 563287, 569573, 570772, 573744, 578838, 578865, 584990, 592160, 592837, 592841, 592925, 592930, 595760, 596009, 600288, 601255, 601336, 601694, 603934, 605830, 607425, 607850, 610356, 610478, 610727, 611694, 611701, 611727, 611898, 612801, 614298, 615165, 616970, 616976, 617077, 617523, 621246, 623292, 624515, 625085, 626059, 626295, 626358, 626419, 626464, 627545, 628110, 629335, 633299, 634036, 634358, 634514, 636210, 640159, 641278, 641280, 641283, 641296, 641490.

(version.mak [1.58]: 2002/11/21 07:12:17 raph)


Fixes problems:
	- Don't overwrite source file when ps2pdf.bat is used with 1
argument and the argument has no ".ps" extension. (Fixed by Moritz Barsnick)
Bug #631974 (lib/ps2pdfxx.bat [1.13]: 2002/11/20 03:01:23 alexcher)


Documents the old macos output device as deprecated. This is superceeded by
the gdevdsp. (gdevmac.c [1.7]: 2002/11/20 18:24:44 giles)

PDF writer

Fixes problems:
	- Fix (pdfwrite) : pdf_put_colored_pattern wrongly accessed pattern
mask. SourceForge bugs "[ 623989 ] (pdfwrite) wrong colors with 269-01.ps",
"[ 602995 ] (pdfwrite) 269-01.ps limitcheck". (gdevpdfv.c [1.20]: 2002/11/18
22:23:40 igor)
	- Fix (pdfwrite) : Providing additional documentation about embedded
fonts. (gdevpdtb.c [1.12]: 2002/11/20 10:21:15 igor)
	- Fix (pdfwrite) : Encoding Differences were not written for
embedded Type 1,2 fonts that have a very instandard Encoding. Discovered
with SF bug "[ 641296 ] acrobat generates bad ps from gs pdf".
(gdevpdtt.c [1.24]: 2002/11/21 00:05:06 igor)
	- Fix (pdfwrite) : The previous patch about Encoding Differences was
inaccurate about True Types and CID fonts. Improving it with a better
condition. (gdevpdtt.c [1.25]: 2002/11/21 03:44:11 igor)

PDF Interpreter

Fixes problems:
	- Pattern stream was copied to the string failing with rangecheck
for long streams. The patch uses strings when possible and switches to
reusable streams for longer streams. Bug #634080, customer #561
(lib/pdf_draw.ps [1.63]: 2002/11/21 01:29:07 alexcher)


Fixes problems:
	- Correction for 637954 dina3_watermark.pdf fails on GS 7.33. This
forces the color space to /DeviceGray whenever the initgraphics operator is
called. Previously if color space substitution was active and the last
colorspace was /DeviceGray then its substituted colorspace would remain
active. (lib/gs_cspace.ps [1.5]: 2002/11/18 23:42:18 dan)
	- Packed array is accepted now as an encoded user path in insideness
testing operators. Bug #640855 (zupath.c [1.7]: 2002/11/20 18:17:28
	- Fix : (1) gc_status.requested was not initialized for stable
memories, but used by alloc_acquire_chunk. (2) setting
gc_status.vm_threshold and gc_status.enabled for stable memories
synchronously with non-stable ones. This allows to control stable memories
with setvmthreshold and vmreclaim. With default settings pdfwrite now works
faster. SourceForge bug "[ 621243 ] (pdfwrite) slow mahle.pdf"
(zvmem2.c [1.7]: 2002/11/20 18:56:56 igor)
	- Bring /SubstituteFont procedure prototype up to the standard:
<name> SubstituteFont <name> . Do traditional GS font
substitution after the standard font substitution. Use no-op standard font
substitution for backward compatibility. Bug #637424 Customer #71
(lib/gs_fonts.ps [1.24]: 2002/11/21 04:43:58 alexcher)
