It would be nice to get enscript updated to 1.6.4 for FC5.  All other major
distributions seem to have shipped it already for a while.

1.6.4 is available from the maintainer's site: http://www.iki.fi/mtr/genscript/
It's listed as "beta" but is already almost 3 years old...

Personally, my interest towards getting it updated is because newer versions of
it include extensible source code formatting capabilities, for example to HTML.
 Applications that could use that functionality include at least CVSweb, ViewVC
(ex-ViewCVS), and Trac.

Perhaps the maintainer could be persuaded to actually release this version out
of beta?
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2006-01-08 16:29:45 EST
Thanks, seems to be working nicely.

There are quite a few additional highlighters available here and there, and I
have  a local package which integrates a bunch of them.  The "problem" is that
installing them properly requires patching states/hl/enscript.st which is not
practical in additional packages.

Would you be interested in applying a patch to the main enscript package
containing these additional highlighters?
