1.1 Changes since version `0.5.8'

This version contains mostly bug fixes, since Ghostscript 6.0 has been delayed.

Better context switching. Configuration and makefile cleanup, with additional support for RPMS. Added tcp_wrappers support. Various bug fixes.

1.2 Changes since version `0.5.7'

DGS can run on a machine with a different byte order from the one it receives client data from.

Multiple contexts and context switching has been implemented.

DGS also launches a server faster (after the first one), by forking a new server for the new process.

Features:

  1. You can change mode of debug via arguments passed to dpsnx.agent. dpsnx.agent debug=n # (n=unsigned int).

  2. You can specify the port number when you call dpsnx.agent directly. dpsnx.agent tcp/N # N means the port number.

1.3 Changes since version `0.5.6'

The dgs server accept TCP connection and UNIX connection at a time if the client runs on the same host of the server or the architecture of the host where the client runs has same byteorder of the architecture of the host where the server.

1.4 Changes since version `0.5.0'

DGS has been updated to include all the work the L. Peter Deutsch did to upgrade Ghostscript for DPS compatibility (e.g. the 5.50 dgs release, which is different from our DGS release). This does not have all the functionality for a full DPS system, but it comes close.

The current implementaion uses a fork-based server. After the first time the dgs system is started using dpsnx.agent, subsequent calls to start a DGS context cause the current context to fork a new process. This is not the best solution, but it is faster than previous methods.

1.5 Noteworthy changes in version `0.5.0'

The rather large change in the version number is not due to a significant change in functionality; instead it was changed to correlate with the GNUstep 0.5.0 release.
