Aladdin Ghostscript 5.10, originally released in November 1997, has now been released with the GPL as GNU Ghostscript 5.10. It is available for downloading from
We hope that FSF or volunteers will propagate it to the GNU mirrors shortly, to alleviate the load on the Wisconsin server, and will make RPMs and other compiled versions.

Please DO NOT report problems with GNU Ghostscript 5.10 to Aladdin, unless we accidentally did something really stupid like omit a crucial file. To the best of our ability and subject to the constraint that there are only 24 hours in a day, problems in Ghostscript 5.10 have been fixed in Ghostscript 5.50, released in September 1998 with the Aladdin Free Public License and scheduled for re-release in September 1999 with the GPL. If you have a problem with GNU Ghostscript 5.10, we suggest you seek help on the gnu.ghostscript.bug newsgroup.
