----- Forwarded message from Roland Bless -----
- I just uploaded an updated version of the ps2eps tool
  to ftp.dante.de. It's all in the subdir /incoming/ps2eps.

- You can replace the existing version in "support/ps2eps"

- The program is licensed under gpl. 

Due to a major bugfix, please announce the update 
-- if admissible -- as follows to CTAN-ANN.

ps2eps 1.45 in CTAN:support/ps2eps
ps2eps is a tool to produce Encapsulated PostScript Files (EPS/EPSF)
from usual one-paged Postscript documents. It calculates correct
Bounding Boxes for those EPS files and filters some special postscript
command sequences that can produce errorneous results on printers.

You need:
 - perl (an interpreter for the perl language, see http://www.perl.com)
 - ghostscript (an interpreter/raster image processor
                for the PostScript language,
                see http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/)
 - maybe an ANSI-C compiler if you don't use Linux, Solaris, Digital Unix,
   HP-UX or Windows 9x/NT/2000.
- The program is licensed under gpl.

Main changes 1.39 -> 1.45
Please note:
Versions <=1.42 may have changed postscript output by
filtering too much postscript instructions. This could
have been lead to wrongly colored boxes and text. Please
consider re-running ps2eps over your files now. Sorry for
the inconvenience!

- corrected filter for deleting initclip instead of rectangles

- option processing is done by GetOpt, i.e. long options are
  available, too. Syntax for -s has changed therefore.

- Wildcards are resolved within the program, thus Windows users
  will profit from it.

Thanks for the upload.  I installed it as suggested replacing the old
version in CTAN:/support/ps2eps/
