ghostscript-agpl: updated to 9.55.0

Version 9.55.0 (2021-09-27)

Highlights in this release include:

This release includes the fix for the %pipe% security issue (CVE-2021-3781).

New PDF Interpreter: This is an entirely new implementation written in C (rather than PostScript, as before). For a full discussion of this change and reasons for it see: Changes Coming to the PDF Interpreter.

In this (9.55.0) release, the new PDF interpreter is disabled by default in Ghostscript, but can be used by specifying -dNEWPDF. We hope to make it the default in 9.56.0, and fully deprecate the PostScript implementation shortly after that (depending on the feedback we get).

This also allows us to offer a new executable (gpdf, or gpdfwin??.exe on Windows) which is purely for PDF input. For this release, those new binaries are not included in the "install" make targets, nor in the Windows installers (they will be from 9.56.0 onwards).

We would ask that as many users as possible take the opportunity to test with the new PDF implementation (i.e. using -dNEWPDF on your gs command line), and discuss any problems with us, before the new implementation becomes the default.

The pdfwrite device now supports "passthrough" for JPX/JPG2000 data images (as well as the already supported JPEG/DCT Encoded). That means that if no rescaling or color conversion of the image data is required, the encoded/compressed image data from the input file will be written unchanged to the output, preventing potential image degradation caused by decompressing and recompressing.

The Ghostscript/GhostPDL demo apps for C, C#, Java and Python have all had improvements and the C#/Java/Python language bindings have now been documented, see Ghostscript Language Bindings

The Zugferd compliant PDF generating definitions (lib/zugferd.ps) have been updated and expanded to support the current version (2.1.1) of the Zugferd spec, and optionally different versions of the specification.

The PCL/m output devices now support Duplex/Tumble.

The internal support for "n-up" style simple imposition (introduced in 9.54.0) has been extended and improved for better support across all input formats.

Ghostscript now supports object specific halftone - for example, different halftones can be specified for text and images, reflecting the differing needs of rendering those two types of object.

Our efforts in code hygiene and maintainability continue.

The usual round of bug fixes, compatibility changes, and incremental improvements.

(9.53.0) We have added the capability to build with the Tesseract OCR engine. In such a build, new devices are available (pdfocr8/pdfocr24/pdfocr32) which render the output file to an image, OCR that image, and output the image "wrapped" up as a PDF file, with the OCR generated text information included as "invisible" text (in PDF terms, text rendering mode 3).

ghostscript-agpl: Update to 9.53.2

Changelog:
Version 9.53.2 (2020-09-25)

Highlights in this release include:

    The 9.53.2 release is primarily maintenance.

    Three issues arose with 9.53.0/1 that prompted the release of
    a .2 patch:

	A crash (or silent, erroneous exit) on 64 bit Windows and
	other LLP64 type environments.

	A parameter type mismatch that would cause Ghostcript to
	error out during initialisation, which affected 64 big,
	big endian architectures.

	An expected side effect of another change that prevented
	multithreaded rendering and background rendering from
	working correctly.

    Details of those can be found in the changelog.

    The most obvious change is the (re-)introduction of the patch
    level to the version number, this helps facilitate a revised
    policy on handling security related issues.

    To clarify: in the event we decide to release a patch revision,
    it will replace the release with the previous patch number.
    Release notes, highlights and warnings will remain the same,
    except for the addition of whatever fix(es) prompted the patch.

    Our efforts in code hygiene and maintainability continue.

    We have added the capability to build with the Tesseract OCR
    engine. In such a build, new devices are available
    (pdfocr8/pdfocr24/pdfocr32) which render the output file to an
    image, OCR that image, and output the image "wrapped" up as a
    PDF file, with the OCR generated text information included as
    "invisible" text (in PDF terms, text rendering mode 3).

    Due to some patches to the Tesseract sources that are required
    (integrated upstream, but awaiting release), time constraints,
    and the experimental nature of the feature, we only support
    including Tesseract from source, not linking to Tesseract shared
    libraries. Whether we add this capability will be largely
    dependant on community demand for the feature.

    See Enabling OCR for more details.

    We have added Python bindings for the gsapi interface, can be
    found in demos/python. These are experimental, and we welcome
    feedback from interested developers.

    For those integrating Ghostscript/GhostPDL via the gsapi
    interface, we have added new capabilities to that, specifically
    in terms of setting and interrogating device parameters. These,
    along with the existing interface calls, are documented in:
    Ghostscript Interpreter API

    IMPORTANT: In consultation with a representative of (OpenPrinting)
    it is our intention to deprecate and, in the not distant future,
    remove the OpenPrinting Vector/Raster Printer Drivers (that
    is, the opvp and oprp devices).

    If you rely on either of these devices, please get in touch
    with us, so we can discuss your use case, and revise our plans
    accordingly.

    IMPORTANT: We have forked LittleCMS2 into LittleCMS2mt (the
    "mt" indicating "multi-thread"). LCMS2 is not thread safe and
    cannot be made thread safe without breaking the ABI. Our fork
    will be thread safe and include performance enhancements (these
    changes have all be been offered and rejected upstream). We
    will maintain compatibility between Ghostscript and LCMS2 for
    a time, but not in perpetuity. If there is sufficient interest,
    our fork will be available as its own package separately from
    Ghostscript (and MuPDF).

    The usual round of bug fixes, compatibility changes, and
    incremental improvements.

ghostscript-agpl: updated to 9.52

Version 9.52:

Highlights in this release include:

The 9.52 release replaces the 9.51 release after a problem was reported with 9.51 which warranted the quick turnaround. Thus, like 9.51, 9.52 is primarily a maintenance release, consolidating the changes we introduced in 9.50.

We have continued our work on code hygiene for this release, with a focus on the static analysis tool Coverity (from Synopsys, Inc) and we have now adopted a policy of maintaining zero Coverity issues in the Ghostscript/GhostPDL source base.

IMPORTANT: In consultation with a representative of (OpenPrinting) it is our intention to deprecate and, in the not distant future, remove the OpenPrinting Vector/Raster Printer Drivers (that is, the opvp and oprp devices).

If you rely on either of these devices, please get in touch with us, so we can discuss your use case, and revise our plans accordingly.

IMPORTANT: We have forked LittleCMS2 into LittleCMS2mt (the "mt" indicating "multi-thread"). LCMS2 is not thread-safe, and cannot be made thread-safe without breaking the ABI.

ghostscript-agpl: updated to 9.24

Version 9.24:

Highlights in this release include:

Security issues have been the primary focus of this release, including solving several (well publicised) real and potential exploits.

PLEASE NOTE: We strongly urge users to upgrade to this latest release to avoid these issues.

As well as Ghostscript itself, jbig2dec has had a significant amount of work improving its robustness in the face of out specification files.

IMPORTANT: We are in the process of forking LittleCMS. LCMS2 is not thread safe, and cannot be made thread safe without breaking the ABI. Our fork will be thread safe, and include performance enhancements (these changes have all be been offered and rejected upstream). We will maintain compatibility between Ghostscript and LCMS2 for a time, but not in perpetuity. Our fork will be available as its own package separately from Ghostscript (and MuPDF).

Version 9.21 (2017-03-16)

This is the fifteenth full release in the stable 9.x series.

Highlights in this release include:
* pdfwrite now preserves annotations from input PDFs (where possible).
* The GhostXPS interpreter now provides the pdfwrite device with the data it requires to emit a ToUnicode CMap: thus allowing fully searchable PDFs to be created from XPS input (in the vast majority of cases).
* Ghostscript now allows the default color space for PDF transparency blends.
* The Ghostscript/GhostPDL configure script now has much better/fuller support for cross compiling.
* The tiffscaled and tiffscaled4 devices can now use ETS (Even Tone Screening)
* The toolbin/pdf_info.ps utility can now emit the PDF XML metadata.
* Ghostscript has a new scan converter available (currently optional, but will become the default in a near future release). It can be enabled by using the command line option: '-dSCANCONVERTERTYPE=2'. This new implementation provides vastly improved performance with large and complex paths.
* The usual round of bug fixes, compatibility changes, and incremental improvements.
