A ghostscript update for Fedora Core 1 is available

Fedora Update Notification

Name : ghostscript
Version : 7.07

Release : 15.2

Summary : A PostScript(TM) interpreter and renderer.
Description :
Ghostscript is a set of software that provides a PostScript(TM) interpreter, a set of C procedures (the Ghostscript library, which implements the graphics capabilities in the PostScript language) and an interpreter for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Ghostscript
translates PostScript code into many common, bitmapped formats, like those understood by your printer or screen. Ghostscript is normally used to display PostScript files and to print PostScript files to non-PostScript printers.

If you need to display PostScript files or print them to non-PostScript printers, you should install ghostscript. If you install ghostscript, you also need to install the ghostscript-fonts package.

Update Information:

The recommended printer driver for several Canon printers was absent from the ghostscript package. The affected printers are:

Canon BJC 250ex
Canon BJC 255SP
Canon BJC 265SP

Updated packages are available to provide this driver.

* Tue Mar 09 2004 Tim Waugh <twaugh@redhat.com> 7.07-15.2

- Added bjc250gs driver (bug #117860).
