106. By Till Kamppeter

Fixed color handling in clist (banding) mode to correctly support RGBW
color space (LP: #864509, Upstream bug 692568).

105. By Till Kamppeter

Upodated patch to not only prevent the crash but also actually finding
the color profiles (Complete fix for LP: #856766, Upstream bug 692532).

103. By Till Kamppeter

debian/rules: Do not use the XCFLAGS variable of "make" for setting
HAVE_SYS_TIME_H, as this breaks the X support via dynamically linking
output device module.

102. By Till Kamppeter

* debian/patches/020110817-766df64-cups-raster-suppress-warnings.patch:
  Code cleanup of the CUPS Raster device to suppress compiler warnings.
* debian/patches/1000_fix_segfaults_in_cups_raster_device.patch,
  Replaced patch by the appropriate patch from upstream.

101. By Till Kamppeter

* debian/ghostscript-cups.ppd-updater: Added data file to trigger the update
  of the PPD files of existing print queues by CUPS and to tell CUPS which
  PPD files to use for the update and how to match them with the PPDs of the
  existing queues.
* debian/ghostscript-cups.postinst: Removed the post-install script which
  was only there to update the PPDs of existing print queues.
* debian/rules: Install ghostscript-cups.ppd-updater and remove the
  dependency on cups-client from ghostscript-cups.
* debian/patches/1000_fix_segfaults_in_cups_raster_device.patch: Temporary
  fix for segfaults in the CUPS Raster output device. It stops the segfaults
  but has a slight memory leak. A better fix is in the works by the upstream

100. By Till Kamppeter

* debian/patches/020110816-d8da050-cups-raster-improve-black-recognition-on-cmyk-to-rgbw.patch:
  CUPS Raster: Improved recognition of black pixels on CMYK -> RGBW conversion
  (Upstream bug 691922).
* debian/patches/020110815-1920f21-cups-raster-set-default-color-profiles.patch:
  Let the CUPS Raster output device set the correct default output color
  space if none is explicitly selected via the "-sOutputICCProfile=..."
  (Upstream bug 691922).
* debian/patches/020110815-05b517b-gdevcups-c-eliminate-compiler-warning.patch:
  Eliminated a compiler warning caused by the previous patch.
* debian/patches/020110815-eb6b631-cups-raster-generate-cups-rgbw.patch:
  Let the CUPS Raster output device generate RGBW as it is described in the
  CUPS specification for the CUPS Raster format (Upstream bug 691922).

99. By Till Kamppeter

* debian/rules: Add "XCFLAGS=-DHAVE_SYS_TIME_H=1" to the "make" command line
  as the multiarch changes of libc6-dev ar not compatible with Ghostscript's
  auto-detection of time.h (LP: #825054).
* debian/symbols.common: Updated. Applied patch which dpkg-gensymbols
  generated for debian/libgs9.symbols to this file.
* debian/patches/020110812~46b4ee6-pxl-landscape.patch: Fixed rendering
  landscape-oriented input files with PCL-XL output through the pxlmono
  and pxlcolor output devices (Upstream bug 692128).
* debian/patches/020110812~d9e044e-lips4v-fix.patch: Fixed lips4v driver
  (Upstream bug 690565).

98. By Till Kamppeter

* debian/rules: Enable D-Bus in the ./configure command line, build-depend
  on libdbus-1-dev, and let ghostscript-cups recommend colord. All this is
  needed for colord support (LP: #788099).
* debian/control: Build-depend on libdbus-1-dev.

97. By Till Kamppeter

* New upstream release
   - Final 9.04 release, August, 5 2011
   - Flexibility for controlling color based upon the graphic object type.
     Unique output ICC profiles and rendering intents for vector graphic,
     image and text portions of a document can be set. It is also possible
     to override source color specifications and use specified ICC
     profiles and rendering intents for RGB and CMYK vector graphics,
     images and text portions of a document. Finally, DeviceGray source
     colors can now easily be specified to map either to K only or
     composite CMYK when the output device supports CMYK colorants.
   - New tiffscaled8 and tiffscaled24 devices.
   - PDF interpreter now tries to continue interpreting after an error in
     the input stream.
   - Re-enabled x11alpha as the default device on Unix systems, the problems
     with transparency are solved.
   - Experimental text extraction device "txtwrite" with full Unicode support.
   - Print rendering speed improvements for PDF input files (Upstream
     bug #691755, LP: #568363, LP: #668800).
   - Several fixes on the CUPS Raster output device to improve stability
     (Upstream bug #691586, #692368, #692393, LP: #628030).
   - Fixes on the RGBW color space support (needed for HP printers used with
     HPLIP) of the CUPS Raster output device, to work with PDF input files
     with transparency and to reproduce the colors correctly (Upstream bug
   - Added "-dNOINTERPOLATE" to the command lines of the CUPS filters to
     get a significant rendering speed improvement.
   - Fix of the pstopxl CUPS filter to make grayscale printing on color
     printers working.
   - The pxlmono/pxlcolor drivers produced huge output files in Ghostscript
     9.0x (Upstream bug 692329).
* debian/rules: Updated MD5 sum for original source tarball
* debian/watch: Search for .tar.bz2 source tarballs
* debian/symbols.common: Updated for new upstream source. Applied patch
  which dpkg-gensymbols generated for debian/libgs9.symbols to this file.
