Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113866
RFE: new version available
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
A new version of ghostscript-fonts is available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3. rpm -q ghostscript-fonts
RedHat/Fedora delivers version "5.5". Version 8.11 is available. It
is also GPL2 according to COPYING. There seem to be quite a few
enhancements to hinting and cyrillic glyphs, perhaps they are of
interest to RedHat/Fedora users.
Actually, version 6.0 and not 5.5 was current for quite a few years,
RedHat always delivering 5.5. The two versions were identical,
though. ;-) SCNR
I've updated this package, and it should appear in rawhide tomorrow.
Let's see if there are any complications.
Reverted -- see bug #99323.
For me, downgrading ghostscript-fonts from 8.11-1 to 5.50-10 causes
Mozilla to crash while starting. It can be fixed by installing 5.50-10
*twice* (downgrade then reinstall). I've reproduced this by upgrading
and downgrading again.
If it only affects rawhide it isn't something we'll fix. Does
upgrading from FC1 to ghostscript-fonts-5.50-10 cause the problem?
