    Developers: Postscript 3 printer driver release imminent

    Monday, September 21, 2009 - 02:49 PM, (6729 Reads)

    We've just learned the news that the much anticipated Postscript 3 Printer Driver being worked on by star coders John Tytgat & Martin W√ľrthner is currently in beta testing and close to release.
    The existing Postscript 2 printer driver has long been cited as deficient in several areas compared to other platforms and this has limited possibilities for outputting amongst other things, Portable Document (PDF) files. Output quality seems to be the main problem with the old Postscript 2 driver. Several aspects, including fonts, 256 colour sprites and graduated fills, have now been vastly improved according to the mw-software information page about the new driver.

    Currently at version 0.90 Beta (16th September 2009), the driver will be released as a commercial product for machines running RISC OS 3.5 or higher. Release is scheduled for the upcoming London RISC OS show on the 3rd of October.
