epstool 3.0 is released. This is used for manipulation of Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files, particularly adding and removing preview images. Other tricks include adjusting the bounding box, converting EPS to a bitmap, and fixing some common faults in Desktop Color Separation files. Much of the code is common with the rewrite of GSview. Sources, Linux i386 executable and Windows executable are available.

The rewritten GSview on Linux now displays well. Next step is to add the user interface for PostScript to PDF, so you can set distiller parameters. There are still many user interface issues as a result of migrating to gtk+ 2.0, but it's useable enough that I haven't run the old version on Linux for months. It's available in a public CVS if anyone wants to test it.
