I am pleased to announce that GNU gv has been released today. It is available for download in the GNU ftp, ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/gv

This prerelease has some minor bugfixes and very usefull new features.

Changes in this version:

* Build-system ensures that the man-page is always up to date

# Fixed some compiler warnings

# Added new widgetless mode, usable via option "--widgetless"

# --help, --usage and --version now work without having an X11 display

# --spartan and --widgetless now use embedded resources. Before this bugfix, you had to use --style=gv_spartan.dat to use the embedded resource.

# --infoSilent, --infoErrors and --infoAll will control, which ghostscript messages will lead to an info pop-up window. The same effect can be reached via a resource "infoVerbose", which values can be "Silent", "Errors" and "All". It can also be edited via the "gv options" dialog.

# "Fit to window magnification" and "Fit with to window magnification" -- currently works best with "Automatic resizing" turned off. With --scale=-1000 resp. --scale=-1001, you can access these special scales from the command line.

? "Fit to window magnification" and "Fit with to window magnification" with "Automatic resizing" turned on sometime miss rescaling, especially when changing the orientation or resizing the window. You can force rescaling by selecting the active "special" scale in the scales menu.

# Arbitrary scales are now possible - input them in the gv options dialog or with --scale=n, where n is a float.
