1.119.1. RHBA-2011:0417: paps bug fix update
An updated paps package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The paps utility is a command line tool that converts plain text files to PostScript using the Pango library.
* Under certain circumstances, the paps utility could incorrectly typeset output using a heavy weight font. With this update, a patch has been applied to address this issue, and the output is now always rendered with a correct font weight. (BZ#504725
* Due to an error in the scaling algorithm, running the paps utility with the "--cpi" command line option to specify the characters per inch (CPI) value did not guarantee the output to be scaled correctly. This update corrects the algorithm to work with exact values, and the output is now scaled as expected. (BZ#537450
Users of paps are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
