  • Not all of the Ghostscript error output was being sent to stderr.
  • The PostScript filter now added PJL commands to set the job name and display string, if supported.

  • Revamped put_params code in pstoraster to fix bitmap allocation bug with FrameMaker output.
  • Ripped out filename, etc. code from pstoraster as it is a potential security hole.
