Release of GNU Ghostscript 6.51

Posted 5 Jun 2001 by raph

We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Ghostscript 6.51. This release makes available the new features of the 6.xx series to the entire GNU community.

This release contains all of the bug fixes committed to the stable branch since the 6.50 release. In addition, it contains integration for the HPIJS and Omni driver suites.

As of this release, the GS_6_5 branch in SourceForge CVS is covered under the GPL. Fixes and integration patches may be committed here, while active development of Ghostscript continues in the HEAD branch.

I'm looking forward to the Linux distributions picking up this version!
