Software News   Software News : Ghostscript 8.13 now available
   posted by D-Dan on 22-Mar-2004 16:32:54 (1368 reads)
Ghostscript V8.13 for 68K amiga is available to download from today.

V8.13 was the latest available version of Ghostscript until Mid February when GS8.14 was made available on other platforms. V8.14 for Amiga is currently being worked on.




This version should run on all 68K machines ('020 upwards), and under 68k emulation on OS4, MorphOS, Amithlon, UAE etc.

V8.13 includes updated turboprint drivers, using the PS device supplied with original versions of TP.

There are both FPU and noFPU versions available, from http://www.whoosh777.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk

There is no native OS4 version yet, and unless whoosh manages to get the cross-compiler there won't be, but he's trying

The 68k version should work with the JIT emulation in OS4, though.

So, if I read this right from the site:.

SETTING UP PS: FOR TURBOPRINT USE

I should be able to install it and it will should run fine with TP? Have others already tired it with TP?

Thanks, this is great news.

Yep - install GS8.13 as per the instructions, then amend the command line on the PS page of Turboprefs to use GS8.13 instead of the old one - and it works fine, then - right out of the box.
