This has been compiled as a test to see what advantages ghostscript-8.70 might bring over the existing ghostscript-7.05.6 extension - it has been tested with cups and seems to work without the addition of the gsfonts extension


1. This extension is much larger than the gs extension - 8.5mb vs 3.0mb - and it does not contain any ghostscript fonts
2. The extension has been compiled with the default options - i.e. all file converters and all printer drivers
3. The extension might be able to print directly using the ghostscript system and without cups, but I don't have a suitable printer to test this. The gs_common-8.70 extension might be required to print in this mode.
4. Do not use this extension together with the gs extension - use either one or the other.
