Version 2.15 Patchlevel 4 Added Features/Bug Fixes

  1. Fix a bug that causes wrong color to be stored when running tgif on a black & white display and a drawing contains XPM objects is saved. Thanks to Johan Vromans <> for pointing out the problem.

  2. Fix a bug with printing 8-bit (international) characters. If an 8-bit character was part of an icon and not an attribute, PostScript output would not contain that character. Thanks to Christoph Litauer <> for pointing out the problem.

  3. Add a new command line option, -color. When -color (or -bw) is used in conjunction with the -print option, color (or black & white) PostScript output is generated (instead of using the color-print flag stored in the file).

  4. Add a new X default, Tgif*UpdateChildUsingAlignment. If it is set to 'true' or 'no_overlap', when update_eps_child(), update_xbm_child(), or update_xpm_child() internal command is executed, the current horizontal and vertical alignments are used to place the EPS/XBM/XPM subobject.

  5. Rober Estes <> contributes a perl script and a symbol for faster generation of PostScript equations. It's available for anonymous ftp as
