[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: ghostscript-8.15-2

The Ghostscript package has been updated to 8.15-2.  This is the
first release of the Cygwin version of the Ghostscript 8.1x series.

The Cygwin version of GPL Ghostscript supports both a native Win32
version and a X11 version for Cygwin XFree86.  A single source
package is used to build both versions.  Three separate packages
are used:

  * A base package, ghostscript-base, which contains the support
    files necessary for both the native and X11 versions, as well
    as the manual pages and documentation.

  * A native package, ghostscript, which contains the native version
    of Ghostscript (gs.exe), along with the corresponding scripts.

  * An X11 package, ghostscript-x11, which contains the X11 version
    of Ghostscript (gs.exe) and scripts.

Both binary versions use the libpng and zlib shared libraries.

Enhancements to Ghostscript-8.1x include
* PDF writer now implements PDF 1.4 encryption.
* Support for JBIG2 encoded images.
* Improved font support and rendering.
Details are at /usr/share/doc/ghostscript-8.15/History8.htm

Some files were missing in ghostscript-8.15-1, so please use
ghostscript-8.15-2 instead.
