GNU gv 3.6.1 has been released today. It is available for download in
the GNU ftp, ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gv

Changes on this release:

# New set of command line arguments. This solves the horrid bug on
gv 3.6.0 that made such release nearly unusable. See the
documentation for details about the new argument list.

# The "Reopen" entry on the File menu has been renamed to "Reload" in
order to be coherent with the "Reload" button.

# The distributed package structure have been fixed, now conforming a
legal GNU source package.

# The delete key now work as expected, that is, it deletes the next
character rather the last character when typed on text entries.

# Dot files are not shown by default on file selection forms.

# If you try to open an empty file you get a coherent error

# New manual page

* Most of the Debian patches has been applied to gv:

162830_scanf.diff (Fix a security risk involving buffer overflows)
167029_argv.diff (Fix an access beyond end of array on process.c)
206008_flicker.diff (Add double-buffering to pixmap operations)
223556_hidden_dir.diff (Do not show dot files on file listings)
250854_tmp_umask.diff (Tempfiles should not be created worldreadable)
