I am happy to see this project much active here, Reuben. And not
only technically, but also with things that can demand less
technical knowledge of things, by the end users - or even by users
that create a project deriving from a2ps "simple filter function".
Am I imagining something possible, here?

This is a minor update to GNU a2ps, an Any to PostScript filter. Of course
it processes plain text files, but also pretty prints quite a few popular
See https://gnu.org/s/a2ps for more information.
This release is a minor bug-fix release. Most importantly, it now works
correctly with libpaper version 1 (although version 2 is recommended!).
Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature:
Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:
The SHA256 checksum is base64 encoded, instead of the
hexadecimal encoding that most checksum tools default to.
Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact. First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball. Then, run a command like this:
gpg --verify a2ps-4.15.4.tar.gz.sig
The signature should match the fingerprint of the following key:
pub rsa2048 2013-12-11 [SC]
2409 3F01 6FFE 8602 EF44 9BB8 4C8E F3DA 3FD3 7230
uid Reuben Thomas <firstname.lastname@example.org>
uid keybase.io/rrt <email@example.com>
If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
or that public key has expired, try the following commands to retrieve
or refresh it, and then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
gpg --locate-external-key firstname.lastname@example.org
gpg --recv-keys 4C8EF3DA3FD37230
wget -q -O- 'https://savannah.gnu.org/project/release-gpgkeys.php?group=a2ps&download=1' | gpg --import -
As a last resort to find the key, you can try the official GNU
wget -q https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-keyring.gpg
gpg --keyring gnu-keyring.gpg --verify a2ps-4.15.4.tar.gz.sig
This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
* Noteworthy changes in release 4.15.4 (2023-04-13) [stable]
* Bug fixes:
- Fix to read configured paper size correctly with libpaper 1.x.
- Various minor documentation improvements.
* Build system:
- Fix tests when building with libpaper 1.x.
- Require gperf for bootstrapping, and use it correctly in build system.
- Require a new-enough version of texinfo.
