Version 4.13:
 * Options:
   - It can no longer happen that --version and --help fail.
   - Fixed the reversed reading of the argument of --truncate.
   - --which, reports the full file name of library files.
   - --glob, globs in the library.
 * Predefined User Options
   - pdf
     `a2ps -=pdf foo' creates foo.pdf.  Uses Adobe Distiller, or
     Ghostscript's ps2pdf.  The fake printer `pdf' is also available.
     Contributed by Manfred Schwarb.
   - simplex and s1
     Forces a2ps to issue a `Simplex' request.  `a2ps -s1' (currently)
     only tells a2ps *not* to issue a Duplex request.
   - display
     Wrapper around the pseudo printer `display' requiring colored
     output, one up.
 * Encodings:
   - ISO 8859-13.
 * Contributions:
   - Ogonkify supports ISO-8859-13 (thanks to Dariusz Ramanauskas).
   - Ogonkify supports the Euro glyph.
   - pdiff and card
     a2ps options are now to be given after `--'.  For instance
       pdiff old new -- -1 -P display
   - fixps

 * Style sheets:
   - asn1.ssh, thanks to Philippe Coucaud.
   - autoconf.ssh
   - awk.ssh, thanks to Edward Arthur.
   - b.ssh, thanks to Philippe Coucaud.
   - bc.ssh
   - cidl.ssh, CORBA IDL, thanks to Bob Phillips.
   - cxx.ssh is the new name for C++ (formerly cpp.ssh).
   - cpp.ssh, CPP.
   - haskell.ssh, thanks to Ilya Beylin.
   - js.ssh, JavaScript, thanks to Scott Pakin.
   - lout.ssh, thanks to Jean-Baptiste Nivoit.
   - maple.ssh, thanks to Richard J Mathar.
   - mly.ssh, CAML Yacc, thanks to Jean-Baptiste Nivoit.
   - ocaml.ssh, thanks to Markus Mottl.
   - pov.ssh, thanks to Jean-Baptiste Nivoit.
   - sed.ssh
   - sml.ssh, Standard ML, thanks to Franklin Chen.
   - shell.ssh, ancestors for *sh.ssh.
   - vba.ssh, Visual Basic for Applications, thanks to Dirk Eddelbuettel.
   - tiger.ssh, related to the toy language of the books
     "Modern Compiler Implementation", by Andrew W. Appel
     http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~appel/modern/
   - xs.ssh, Perl XS, thanks to Kestutis Kupciunas.
 * The syntax of sheets.map is improved
 * Regexp are now `egrep' and `Perl' like, and no longer `Emacs' like.
   Before some characters had to be backslashed to denote the
   operators.  Now, it is just the opposite.  For instance before
   `\\(' and `\\)' used to be the grouping operator and `(' and `)'
   were standing for the characters parentheses; while now it is the
   converse.
   Affected characters are `(', `)', `|', `{', and `}'.
   Make sure to update your own style sheets.
 * Error Signaling
   - Failing compilations of regexp in style sheets now report the filename
     and line where the error occured.
 * Delegations
   File names with spaces are correctly processed.
 * Number of wrapped lines
   Is reported if the variable `cfg.wrapped' is set (which is the default).
 * Prologues
   - fixed.pro uses only fixed size fonts, in order to preserve the
     indentation.
   - ul.pro underlines where italics are expected.  Meant to print
     formatted man pages.
 * Wrapped lines
   The number of lines which were wrapped is reported.
   Contributed by Scott Pakin.

Version 4.12		Feb 16, 1999
 * Configuration Files:
   - Quotation is fixed, and works as in a shell.  It is no longer
     required to write:
         Options: '--stdin=A Title With Spaces'
     since one can write:
         Options: --stdin='A Title With Spaces'
   - `Options:' entries now report the file and line where the error occured.
   - Define a variable #{lp} in a2ps.cfg that is system dependent, but
     allows for system independent definition of printers in a2ps-site.cfg.
   - `Printer:' can specify a PPD only, in which case the `UnknownPrinter:'
     command is used.
   - configure allows --without-extensions
     Install a small a2ps (fewer library files).  Discouraged for non
     ASCII or Latin 1 users.
   - `Include:' includes another configuration file.
   - a2ps.cfg now includes `a2ps-site.cfg' which allows easier
     upgrades of a2ps without loosing previous configurations.
   - Now parsed using gperf.
     No speed up really noticeable :(, but cleaner :).
 * PPD files:
   - supports `*Include:'.
 * Options:
   - --medium supports case insensitive matches.
   - -S formerly --statusdict is now --setpagedevice
   - -D formerly --setpagedevice is now --define.
   - --toc with no argument uses the default Table of Contents layout
     (#{toc}).
   - -s, --sides
     Now admits 1, 2, simplex, duplex, and tumble.
   - --file-align=MODE
     Replaces (generalizes) --compact.  MODE can be:
       + `virtual', put as many files per sheet as possible
       + `rank', never allow two files on the same row (or column)
       + `page', never allow two files on the same page
       + `sheet', never allow two files on the same sheet
       + an integer NUM, specify that files must be aligned on NUM
   - -A
     is now exactly the short option for --file-align.
   - Output of --list=features is much more pleasant to read.
 * Contributions:
   - fixps
     If a file seems really very very bad, asks gs a full rewrite.
     Therefore there should no longer be *any* (valid) PostScript file
     refused by a2ps for delegations.
   - psset inserts PostScript requests for special features (ManualFeed,
     Duplex, DuplexTumble etc.).
   - psmandup
     + Now uses psset
     + New options --back and --front.  --back gives another chance of
       printing the second half if the timeout expired.
 * Style Sheets:
   - Fortran
     Major clean up thanks to Alexander Mai.
     + fortran.ssh remains the generic style sheet for unqualified
       Fortran.
     + (for77|for90)-(fixed|free).ssh for more specific dialects.
   - REXX scripts, thanks to Alexander Mai.
   - dc_shell, thanks to Philippe Le Van.
   - Mixed Style Sheets.
     Mixed sheets are sheets defined by ancestors only.  To build a
     mixed sheet, just specify a comma separated list of ancestors
     anywhere a style sheet key can be given (-E, sheets.map etc.).
   - Visual Tcl, thanks to Phil Hollenback.
   - Extended Tcl, thanks to Phil Hollenback.
 * Bug Fixes:
   - The long standing bug of user options (user options could not
     be used *after* an argument) is fixed.  Now it is safe to run
        a2ps file1 -=lp file2
     (before, only file2 was printed).  Algorithm suggested by Tristan
     Gingold.
   - Version control works also for to-file printers (e.g., -P file).
   - Temporary files are correctly removed even under abnormal conditions
     (broken pipe, C-c etc.).
 * Delegations:
   - Now outputs the setpagedevice requests in delegated jobs.  It is now
     OK to run
        a2ps foo.dvi -s2 -P duplex-printer
   - LaTeX.
     Needed calls to makeindex, bibtex and latex are run.
 * Predefined User Options:
   - `manual' for -SManualFeed:true
   - `book'.  This is experimental.  Allows for printing booklet on
   *printers* only (no way to save as a file).
 * Variables:
   - user.login, user.name, user.home, user.host, user.comments
     are now predefined and, of course, can be change as regular variables.
     Weird escapes such as
       `%a{USERNAME}'
         the localized equivalent for `Printed by USERNAME'
       `%A{USERNAME@HOSTNAME}'
         the localized equivalent for `Printed by USERNAME from HOSTNAME'.
     are no longer needed, and therefore removed.
 * Fonts:
   - .gsf fonts supported.
   - At configuration, a2ps looks for ghostscript fonts
   - PC Line Drawing fonts is fixed.
   - Russian fonts/afms are no longer distributed in the core of the
     package.  Another package, i18n-fonts, contains them all.

   configuration.
 * Environment Variables:
   - A2PS_VERBOSITY is equivalent to --verbose, but is consulted
     since startup (long before command line is read).
 * Error Signaling
   Now a2ps makes visible the invisible characters when reporting an
   error (it helps a lot!).
 * By default liba2ps is built static only.

	   - bold.pro (as bw.pro, but using bold fonts).
	* Options:
           --copyright.
	   --list=TOPIC replaces all the --list-topic.
	     (e.g., --list-options is --list=options etc.).

	    delegations!).
	  - --end-of-line: specify how end of lines should be handled.
	    In particular --end-of-line=auto supports the 4 classic eol.
	    This is the end of trailing ^M for PC files.

	    formated according to the PreScript style.
	  - --list-encodings, --list-user-options.

	  - new face: Error.
	* Meta Sequences:
	  - #! uses only two fields, not four!
	  - Padding is supported (e.g., $-.10n gives `README....')
	  - Removed: #f.
	  - New: $p^, $p-., #f0 to #f9, #p, #?V, #?q, #?o, #?p, \f, $[], #!$.
	  - Renamed: $l< -> $l^.
	* Encodings:
	  - Encodings are stored in `files.edf' in which you may define
