Description Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-10-18 06:46:17 UTC
Highlights in this release include:

    Ghostscript can now consume and produce (via the pdfwrite device) PDF 2.0 compliant files.

    The main focus of this release has been security and code cleanliness. Hence many AddressSanitizer, Valgrind and Coverity issues have been addressed.

    The usual round of bug fixes, compatibility changes, and incremental improvements.

Comment 3 Alexander Tsoy 2018-09-05 08:22:13 UTC
9.24 is out with security fixes
Comment 4 Teika kazura 2018-09-18 22:16:31 UTC
9.25 is there, fixing security issues further.

The upstream news of both 9.25 and 9.24 say "PLEASE NOTE: We strongly urge users to upgrade to this latest release to avoid these issues."

The same pages say there hasn't been any incompatible changes (in fact from 9.21)

patchset for 9.25

Let me submit a patchset for 9.25. Changes from ghostscript-gpl-9.21-patchset-1.tar.xz are:
* All *9.21* patches are deleted, which are already applied in the source. Namely, they are:

* Font name patch is updated minimally. The order of some entries were changed in the source, so I followed these changes. Other changes are simply ignored. I renamed the patch filename, by changing "9.20" to "9.25"
  ghostscript-9.20-urw-fonts-naming.patch -> ghostscript-9.25-urw-fonts-naming.patch
