Software Update: Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript 2009-07-14

Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript is, as the name clearly shows, a barcode generator for level 2 Postscript. A barcode is created according to the specifications of the user by the ‘postscript interpreter’, for example a printer or Ghostscript. The program supports various formats, such as code 128, isbn-13/10, maxi code, pdf417 and even kix, which is delivered by TNT Post used. For more information, we refer you to this quick guide, and a web-based frontend is on this page to admire. Terry Burton has released a new version of Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript with 2009-07-14 as the version number. The list of changes since the previous entry in the Meuktracker looks like this:

Version 2009-07-14:
The GS1 DataBar Limited default height was changed to match the minimum permitted height.

Version 2009-07-12:
Added support for GS1 DataBar Truncated to the rss14 encoder with option format=truncated.
Added support for GS1 DataBar Stacked to the rss14 encoder with option format=stacked.
Added support for GS1 DataBar Stacked Omnidirectional to the rss14 encoder with option format=stackedomni.

Version 2009-07-06-1:
Fixed bug in the padding of maxicode symbols where the data terminates in code set C, D or E.
Cleaned up the maxicode implementation by inlining the high-level encoding procedure.

Version 2009-07-06:
The font height calculation performed by the linear renderer was improved.
The human readable text for OneCode symbols was improved to match the specification.

Version 2009-07-03-2:
The pad characters from character set B were disambiguated.

Version 2009-07-03-1:
A bug with the ordinal parser in the maxicode encoder was fixed.

Version 2009-07-03:
An autoencoder was added to the maxicode encoder.

Version 2009-06-22:
C40, TEXT and X12 encoders were added to data matrix.

Version 2009-06-21:
Added checksum support to ean8 encoder.
Fixed breakage in ean8 when includetext not in use.

Version 2009-06-20-1:
Fix looping in data matrix ASCII mode encoder.

Version 2009-06-20:
The ASCII-mode encoder for data matrix was improved to compact pairs of digits.

Version 2009-06-19:
An EDIFACT-mode autoencoder was added to the data matrix encoder.

Version 2009-06-03:
A byte-mode autoencoder was added to the datamatrix encoder and set as default.

Version 2009-05-20:
A byte-mode-only autoencoder was added to the pdf417 encoder to simplify the use of the pdf417 encoder for common tasks.

Version 2009-05-17:
A byte-mode-only autoencoder was added to the azteccode encoder to simplify the use of the azteccode encoder for common tasks.
