Description of problem:
Ghostscript 7.05 is out and ready under GPL. So I guess that the whole next year
(at least) it's going to be top of the line for us.
Please include!

These are also GPL, i think. It's surprising that there is no version 5.50, but
rather 6.0


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-05-03 03:01:10 EDT
Omni seems not to be ported yet.
Comment 2 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2002-05-18 17:40:35 EDT
The latest Omni 0.6.1 contains patches for Ghostscript 7.04 from February. 
Don't they work with 7.05, which should not be that different? From what you 
said I suppose they don't.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-05-21 09:57:02 EDT
No, they didn't.  But the 7.05 patch from last week mostly works.  7.05-1.
