Ghostscript Version 9.50 Release Notes


The following seems to be the link for downloading Ghostscript 9.28, scroll down for the Windows x32 and x64 downloads:

Ghostscript 9.28

Confusingly Ghostscript 9.27 seems to be the latest official prior release.

@ckit Can you elaborate on the issue with Ghostscript 9.50?

XnView Classic and XnViewMP no longer recognise or can open PDF files!
No thumbnail creation and No View mode in either case

Ghostscript 9.27 is Gold for me atm, 9.28 is RC4 for now so I'll wait for Final before trying it

Looks like the issue might date back to 9.27 as detailed here if anyone can understand it! :wink:

Hopefully Pierre can easily edit the XnView applications code to restore normal operation?
