This is to announce the release of GNU Ghostscript
version 8.01.

GNU Ghostscript is an interpreter for the Postscript
language and the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF),
a set of C procedures (the Ghostscript lib) that
implements the graphics capabilities that appear as
primitive operations in the Postscript language and in
PDF, and a set of utility programs that include the
ability to convert PostScript to PDF.

The main changes since the last release (7.07b) are
support for DeviceN  colorspaces, up to 8 colorants
total at 8 bits per component. Also, pdfwrite has 
seen  considerable improvement in font handling, and
many other bug fixes.

GNU Ghostscript is based on the GPLed Ghostscript made
by Ralph Giles, artofcode LLC and Artifex Software,
Inc.  Thanks to Ralph's hard work for making this
release of Ghostscript possible.
