I always used 0.3(r514). When I printed with another software this 
should have been any Adobe Reader version (what is also updated from 
time to time).

So it's always worth to look at newer revision numbers. The change log 
is great. Somehow hidden in the sources at the google source site, but 
with no problem for me. Don't know if it's worth to have a more coarse 
change log for other users...

Indeed, I learned a lot.
