Hi

A new version of 'gv' has been uploaded to a server near you.


DESCRIPTION:
============
A PostScript and PDF viewer for X using 3d Athena Widgets

CYGWIN NEWS:
============

 o Routine update to latest upstream release
   
gv NEWS:
========

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% GV 3.6.3  (June 2007) %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

# gv is now able to work with latest ghostscript: gs 8.57

# The bug causing the version not to figure in the manual has been
  fixed.

# The SIGINT signal is now masked (ignored) by gv.

# gv no more segfaults when reading a configuration file as produced by 
  State -> Setup Options -> Save

# gv should compile in non-GNU system that doesnt have glib2. The
  `getopt' gnulib module has been imported to fix this.

# gv now correctly adjust the page index window after PAGE-UP and
  PAGE-DOWN events.

# gv is now able to open files with minus character beginning
  filenames.

# X resources related bugs has been fixed. gv is now able to get
  resources from the display database, user file, gv system database
  and command line doing the Right Thing (TM).

# gv is now able to correctly understand DocumentMedia and other DSC
  directives that uses postscript strings. It was not possible with
  previous versions due to a bug in the postscript names scanning
  routine.

* Vulnerability CVE-2006-5864 has been fixed.

* gs is now invoked with `-dFIXEDMEDIA'

* The internal gettext implementation has been renamed to `ps_gettext'
  to avoid collisions with the builtin `gettext' function.

* --quiet and --noquiet now works as expected.

? There are troubles with 64 bits machines: the use of x-pointers to
  store data should be eliminated in subsequent versions.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% GV 3.6.2  (14 December 2006) %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

? There are troubles with 64 bits machines: the use of x-pointers to
  store data should be eliminated from the sources.

? It is not possible to zoom when viewing PDF 1.4 files. PDF 1.5 files are
  not supported at all.

? The quality of postcript files generated by saving PDF files is poor.

? See http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=gv for more known bugs on
  this release.
