print Ghostscript 9.x PostScript interpreter
Update to 9.05. Changes include:
- Ghostscript's PDF interpreter is now able to make use of the
DroidSansFallback TrueType font to automatically substitute for
missing CIDFonts. Whilst it is always best to ensure the
original CIDFont is available for the best and most accurate
output, the ability to make an automatic substitution will be
valuable for those merely viewing or proofing such files.
- This release includes support for a proofing ICC profile. The
command option is specified using -sProofProfile=filename. With
this option, the color output will emulate what would be
obtained had the source file been rendered on a device defined
by the proofing profile. (See GS9_Color_Management.pdf for
- This release includes support for a device link ICC
profile. The command option is specified using
-sDeviceLinkProfile=filename. With this option, the device link
profile is added to the end of the link transform from source
to destination. In this case, one can include a command line
option like "-sDevice=tiff32nc -sOutputICCProfile=srgb.icc
-sDeviceLinkProfile=linkRGBtoCMYK.icc" and source colors will
be mapped through sRGB and through the device link profile to
CMYK values for the device.
- Ghostscript now supports "unmanaged color transformations" for
source DeviceXXX colors (in other words, they use a simple
conversion, rather than the ICC profile based color
workflow). This is beneficial in uses where performance takes
precedence over ultimate color fidelity (the command line
parameter -dUseFastColor enables this).
- The font set distributed with Ghostscript has been changed to
the standard 35 Postscript-compatible fonts distributed by URW.
- Ghostscript now includes a simple ink-coverage device,
contributed by Sebastian Kapfer (inkconv).
- The TIFF, JPEG and PNG output devices now support embedding of
the device ICC profile in the output file.
- Ghostscript now ships modified OpenJPEG sources for JPEG2000
decoding (replacing JasPer). Performance, reliability and
memory use whilst decoding JPX streams are all improved
- jbig2dec now has simple halftone region support
- The ps2write device has had a large number of output quality
and stability improvements.
