fixes compilation with FreeType 2.10.3+;a=commitdiff;h=41ef9a0bc36b9db7115fbe9623f989bfb47bbade
- Version upgrade to 9.53.3
Highlights in this release include
(excerpts from the Ghostscript upstream release summary
* The 9.53.3 release is primarily maintenance.
* Issues arose with 9.53.0/1/2 that prompted the release
of a .3 patch:
A crash related to management of ICC profile objects.
A parameter type mismatch that would cause Ghostscript
to error out during initialisation, which
affected 64 big, big endian architectures.
An unexpected side effect of another change that prevented
multithreaded rendering and background rendering
from working correctly.
* The most obvious change is the (re-)introduction of the
patch level to the version number, this helps facilitate
a revised policy on handling security related issues.
To clarify: in the event we decide to release a patch revision,
it will replace the release with the previous patch number.
Release notes, highlights and warnings will remain the same,
except for the addition of whatever fix(es) prompted the patch.
* Our efforts in code hygiene and maintainability continue.
* We have added Python bindings for the gsapi interface, can be
found in demos/python. These are experimental, and we welcome
feedback from interested developers.
* For those integrating Ghostscript/GhostPDL via the gsapi
interface, we have added new capabilities to that, specifically
in terms of setting and interrogating device parameters. These,
along with the existing interface calls, are documented in:
Ghostscript Interpreter API at
* The usual round of bug fixes, compatibility changes,
and incremental improvements.

* As of 9.53.0, we have (re-)introduced the patch level to the
version number, this helps facilitate a revised policy
on handling security related issues.
Note for GSView Users: The patch level addition breaks
GSView 5 (it is hardcoded to check for versions 704-999).
It is possible, but not guaranteed that a GSView update might
be forthcoming to resolve this.
