GNU gv 3.6.6 has been released today. It is available for download in
the GNU ftp,

I'd like to thank every contributor.

Please note that I have a new e-mailaddress (address@hidden), please switch to the new one. My old address will expire on some day in January 2009.

* New in this release

GNU gv 3.6.6 has some new features:

# Updated maintainer's e-mail address

# libzio is now used if available during compile time

# gv-update-userconfig now offers the options -n resp. -N to switch to an alternative navigation: After each page switch (except if selected by the page number) the page is scrolled to the top (if switching forward) resp. the bottom (if switching backward).

# gv-update-userconfig can remove the resources inserted by -n resp. -N with the new option -s.

# Support for encrypted PDF files. New command line switch "--password=PASSWORD" for opening encrypted PDFs. If the password is not supplied via command line, the user will be asked to enter it.

# Support for files > 2GB on file systems with large file support.

? Interactive prompting for the password of encrypted PDF files do not work if and only if DSC is turned off. As a workarouund, you can load the file with DSC turned on and then turn DSC off.

# the current coordinate can be saved to a file by the z resp. the u key. See for details.

# The return key now scrolls through the whole document vertically. Unlike the space key no horizontal scrolling is performed. The old function of the return key is still available through the "Page Down" and the "f" key.

# *.ad and *.dat files are installed to $PREFIX/share/gv

# "ERROR:" and "error:" now also trigger the info popup in error mode

# Xinerama support. It can be configured by the "xinerama"-resource. Its values can be "On", "Off" or "Auto". "Auto" is the default.

# New helper Script "gv-update-userconfig", which is a simple script to update an .gv config file to the current version of gv.

# Should build on Solaris now using sun studio 11 compiler
