ghostscript 8.61.dfsg.1-1 uploaded

Finally I uploaded the new ghostscript package. Now CJK languages are fully supported, so if you install the needed CJK TrueType font packages(suggested by gs-cjk-resource) along with it, you should be able to see the following examples properly:

Of course, you can use ps2pdf etc. too.

Also, I prepared the current SVN snapshot packages w/ CJKV support. Try it if you wish. The apt-line is as follows:

deb http://people.debian.org/~mhatta/debian/ghostscript/ ./
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~mhatta/debian/ghostscript/ ./

cmap-adobe-* uploaded

Adobe CMaps for CJK CID-keyed fonts (cmap-adobe-cns1 for Adobe-CNS1-5, cmap-adobe-gb1 for Adobe-GB1-5, cmap-adobe-japan1 for Adobe-Japan1-6, cmap-adobe-japan2 for the obsoleted Adobe-Japan2-0 and cmap-adobe-korea1 for Adobe-Korea1-2) have been updated to the latest versions from Adobe.

I don't (or actually can't) test those for Chinese or Korean enough, so please send bug reports if you have any problem.

a2ps 4.14-1 uploaded

I've released new upstream release, but I forgot to upload the Debian package. It's kinda weird that I'm now the Debian maintainer AND the upstream author...

Seems the gnuwin32 project already made A2Ps for Windows 4.14. Thanks! Also, please send me any patches if you have.

Japan's Big Push To Regulate The Internet

Once again Techdirt carries an excellent summary for the situation we Japanese are currently facing. Also I recommend the original article Techdirt refers.

Hatsu-moude

I went to Hatsu-moude. Hatsu-moude means New Year's visit to a shrine. I went to a shrine nearby my home. Pretty much crowded.

This was (and still is) basically a Shinto ritual, but most people don't care and simply want some fun. I'm not really a Shintoist too, but I love that festive atmosphere.
