"Upgrading" to GPL 8.54 from ESP 8.15 would actually be a regression in several
ways.  We need to wait until the ESP integration work is done.  Please be patient.
Comment 2 Levente Farkas 2006-08-21 11:45:10 EDT
and what about the fonts. they have nothing to do with ghostscript version
afais. and it's only 5.50 while on 
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=3498 it's 8.11?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2006-08-21 11:50:17 EDT
Yes, once the feature freeze is over we can update to that (and perhaps also
with an FC6 update).

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2006-12-15 08:51:20 EST
We shipped 8.11 (dated December 2003) back in FC2, and upgraded to the current
font collection (dated June 2004) after that.

Can anyone find a newer collection of GPL GS fonts?  Please re-open if so..
Comment 6 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2007-02-09 10:35:24 EST
That was *downgrade* in June 2004. 
This one is _still_ newer:

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2007-02-09 10:55:20 EST
We have been shipping the 'other' fonts, not the 'std' fonts, in the
ghostscript-fonts package since this change:

* Fri Nov 13 1998 Preston Brown <pbrown@redhat.com>
- removed the std fonts...now shared between X11 and gs with URW fonts pkg.

In fact, we briefly tried the 'std-8.11' tarball in 2004, and reverted it
because it broke things:


So we'll stick with 5.50 unless someone can point to a newer 'other' fonts package.
