It is differnt this time. There used to be something like a one year
delay between the AFPL and the corresponding GPL version. This time
AFPL 8.54 26 May 2006
GPL 8.54 2 Jun 2006
Besides this, there isn't much on ghostscript.com. However, accoring to
Raph Levien's diary¹, they really want to make the GPL version 'leading
edge' and try to get ESP GS merged. It this works out in the end, this
sure will be a good thing.
