DO NOT REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE. INSTEAD, POST ANY RESPONSES TO THE LINK BELOW.
Today GPL Ghostscript 8.60 with the ESP Ghostscript functionality merged in
(esp. the "cups" output device) will be released and so the merger of ESP
Ghostscript into upstream Ghostscript completed. ESP Ghostscript is
finally obsolete from today on.
The documentation of CUPS 1.3 (supposed to be released after today) still
recommends ESP Ghostscript and if one looks onto the ESP Ghostscript page
here on the CUPS web site it is told that it is discontinued.
The documentation which comes with CUPS (and also the documentation on the
CUPS web site) needs to be updated, recommending GPL Ghostscript 8.60 or
newer from www.ghostscript.com.
I have observed the problem in README.txt and INSTALL.txt, but it probably
occurs also in other files and other software packages.
