Looking for old sources of Ghostscript

Hi there,

I got Ghostscript 9.26 to build on Haiku. Cool. However it’s missing the native rendering backend, which would allow to use it, for example, in BGhostView (or later on maybe integrate it in DocumentViewer). It seems the older versions (as far as I know, 4.x, 5.x up to 5.5 and then 6.01) had this. I got a copy of the sources for 5.04 from my BeOSArchive, but it would be great if someone had something slightly newer. 6.01 would be super interesting because I think it is for BeOS 4.5 or 5, not some old PR release, so that would save me some work on that side.

Does anyone happen to have a backup of this around? Thanks for your help!

Hello, take a look at https://ftp.icm.edu.pl/packages/ghostscript/old-gs-releases/ghostscript-6.01.tar.bz2

AGMS kindly pointed me to GhostScript 8.14 on BeShare, which includes the BeOS changes I’m after. I’ll see if I can get them ported over to 9.x releases.
