Log Message:
Changes 9.07:

As of this release (9.07), Ghostscript and GhostPDL are distributed under the 
GNU Affero General Public License (AGPL).

Ghostscript now has the option to be built as thread safe. Note that not all 
devices are thread safe. See the GS_THREADSAFE option in: GS_THREADSAFE

The pdfwrite devices now supports linearized (or optimized for fast web view) 
output directly ("-dFastWebView")

The Font API (FAPI) has been moved from the Postscript interpreter (psi) into 
the graphics library (base), and extended to support the other languages 
(PCL/PXL/XPS). All interpreters now use Freetype by default to render all 
viable font types.

Ghostscript has been extended to support Postscript string and array objects 
with >64k entries.

Ghostscript has been extended to support file sizes >4Gb - in particular 
reading and writing PDF files. As a side effect of this, Ghostscript also now 
supports 64 bit Postscript integer objects.

All CMYK devices can now support simulated overprint of spot colors using the 
"-dSimulateOverprint" command line option.

Support for use of DeviceN ICC color profiles as the output profile with the 
tiffsep and psdcmyk devices.

Support for customized named color handling with DeviceN colors

Support for black point compensation

Support for K preservation in CMYK to CMYK conversions

Support for DeviceLink profiles for graphic, image and text objects

Support for custom color replacement

Increased control in specifying color conversions as a function of object type

Full details of the color management features can be found in: 

Provide BigTIFF output option: the tiff devices can write BigTIFF files using 
the "-dUseBigTIFF" option. This requires libtiff version >=4.0.0 (the option is 
ignored for versions <4.0.0)

LittleCMS updated to 2.4

Plus the usual round of bug fixes, compatibility changes, and incremental
