debian/patches/cljet5-mediasize-fix.dpatch: Upstream fix for the media
size handling of the "cljet5" printer driver.

60. By Till Kamppeter

* debian/ghostscript-cups.postinst: Fixed "lpstat -r" check for the
  auto update of PPDs of existing queues. "lpstat -r" exits always with
  status 0, we must check the actual output. Call lpstat, lpadmin, and
  cupsctl with "-h /var/run/cups/cups.sock" to avoid querying remote
  servers set up in /etc/cups/client.conf, and asking for passwords.
  Thanks to Martin-√Čric Racine for tracking this down and the solution!
  See Debian bug #543468. Use signal names instead of numbers for trap.
  Quiesces a lintian bashism warning.
* debian/rules: Remove /usr/bin/ps2pdf from the ghostscript package, it was
  treated by update-alternatives for a longer time already (LP: #429856).

* New upstream release
   o License is now GPLv3 or later
   o No functional change. This is only to let the final release not
     appear as a release candidate in the help output and documentation
     and also to reflect the new license.
* debian/copyright: License change.

58. By Till Kamppeter

     patterns, ...
   o Fixes in font handling, especially when generating PDF
   o Improvements in robustness, correctness, and performance
   o New generic Esc/Page drivers: "eplmono", "eplcolor"
   o New "cdnj500" driver for many HP DesignJet printers
   o License is now GPLv2 or later and not GPLv2-only any more
   o Merged all patches of the Ubuntu and Debian packages upstream
   o Fixes LP: #196009
* debian/patches/33_bad-params-to-xinitimage-on-large-bitmaps.dpatch,
  Removed patches backported from upstream.
* debian/copyright: License change.
* debian/ghostscript.links: s/8.64/8.70/

57. By Till Kamppeter

debian/patches/43_add-cdnj500-driver.dpatch: Set rendering intent for
the "Presentation" quality in the "cdnj500" driver to "Perceptual", this
gives better colors than the original "SATURATION".

56. By Till Kamppeter

debian/control: Moved dependencies of ghostscript-cups on cups,
cups-client back to Depends:, for post-install this is sufficient.

55. By Till Kamppeter

debian/control: Moved dependencies of ghostscript-cups on cups,
cups-client, and perl-base to Pre-Depends:, as only this way it is
assured that these packages are configured (especially CUPS daemon
running) before this package gets configured (update of the PPDs of
existing queues).

54. By Till Kamppeter

debian/control: Removed unneeded "perl" from Depends:. This is only
needed for Perl applications, not for a simple "perl -p -e ..." in the
postinst script.

53. By Till Kamppeter

* debian/patches/53_fix-pstoraster-for-call-with-input-filename.dpatch:
  pstoraster did not work when called with an input file name as the 6th
  command line argument.

* debian/patches/50_ps2write-do-not-advertize-dsc-conformance.dpatch:
  The "ps2write" output device produces PostScript which is not
  DSC-conforming, so do not advertize it as DSC-conforming with a
  "%!PS-Adobe-..." magic string. Use "%!" instead. Otherwise the "pstops"
  CUPS filter cannot handle this output (LP: #377011).

* debian/patches/45_cups-device-pagesize-margins-duplex-fixes.dpatch:
  Fixed recognition of page size via /cupsPageSizeName. All page sizes were
  considered custom sizes if /cupsPageSizeName was not set.

52. By Till Kamppeter

debian/control, debian/rules, debian/ghostscript.postinst,
debian/ghostscript-cups.postinst: Splitted off the CUPS-related files
into its own package, so that the requirements of cups and cups-client
for the automatic update of the PPDs of existing print queues do not
apply to the ghostscript core package. Added cups and cups-client to
the Depnds: entry of the new ghostscript-cups, so that the automatic
updates of the PPDs also works on updates to a new release of the
distribution and not only on single-package updates. Added also perl
as dependency to the ghostscript-cups package as it is also needed
for the automatic PPD updates.
