    already before its Ghostscript subprocess finished. Thanks to Tim Waugh
    from Red Hat for the fix.

    in memory reallocation on bitmap size changes. Color depth was not
    taken into account. This caused black pages to be printed with some
    CUPS Raster drivers, like Turboprint. Fixes upstream bugs #691029 and
  * debian/patches/fix-broken-korean-example.dpatch: Fixed example file for

Import patches-unapplied version 8.71.dfsg.1-0ubuntu1 to ubuntu/lucid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 934046af7e4bc9e1845c444d20cdea698dacbfcd

New changelog entries:
  * New upstream release
     o libtiff-based tiff file output
     o New "tiffsep1" output device produces halftoned separations at 1 bit
       per pixel
     o Improved FreeType-based font rasterizing (not yet used as default)
     o Improved graphics library for vector graphics conversions
     o Many bug fixes on the PCL-XL printer drivers ("pxlmono", "pxlcolor")
     o Fixes on back side handling for duplex printing in the CUPS Raster
       output device ("cups").
  * debian/patches/gs-cups-rgb-gamma.dpatch,
    debian/patches/gs-cups-fix-backside-on-duplex-jobs.dpatch: Removed patches
    backported from upstream.
  * debian/patches/fix-build-of-executables.dpatch: Fix build of the "gs"
    executable, it was built as a shared library and not as an executable.
    This lead to an immediate segfault even before "main()" got called.
    Thanks to Robin Watts from Ghostscript for the quick fix.
  * debian/control: Added build dependency on libtiff-dev.
  * debian/ghostscript.links: s/8.70/8.71/

934046a... by Till Kamppeter on 2010-01-26

Import patches-unapplied version 8.70.dfsg.1-0ubuntu5 to ubuntu/lucid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 30ec9a0274dfccd9755d69cb77d9560b0135debb

New changelog entries:
  * debian/patches/gs-cups-fix-backside-on-duplex-jobs.dpatch: The "cups"
    output device (generating input for the CUPS Raster drivers) did not
    update the margins and page orientation for the back sides in time and
    so the back side was often the wrong way around, especially with printers
    which print the back sides backwards, like HP inkjets. The problem occurs
    only with PostScript as input and not with PDF, which made the bug not
    showing in Ubuntu and Debian. This change is applied to Ubuntu's
    Ghostscript so that Lucid users regression-test it before Ghostscript
    8.71 gets released in February (HPLIP upstream bug: LP: #484928).

Import patches-unapplied version 8.70.dfsg.1-0ubuntu4 to ubuntu/lucid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: e738f909d7812ab5c0a25b3545a983e6f08762cd

New changelog entries:
  * debian/patches/pxl-driver-fixes.dpatch: Several upstream bug fixes
    on the PCL-XL drivers ("pxlcolor"/"pxlmono") in Ghostscript, especially
    also for PDF input. Thanks to Hin-Tak Leung on putting all that work
    into this driver which stayed nearly untouched for around 10 years.
    (LP: #361772).

27c134a... by Till Kamppeter on 2009-09-18

Import patches-unapplied version 8.70.dfsg.1-0ubuntu2 to ubuntu/karmic

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: f9b3cdcce75ff3485bd90b80983e7b68bea69b4e

New changelog entries:
  * 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).
