ghostscript 9.23~dfsg+1-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

ghostscript (9.23~dfsg+1-0ubuntu1) cosmic; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release
    Highlights:
    + Ghostscript now has a family of 'pdfimage' devices (pdfimage8,
      pdfimage24 and pdfimage32) which produce rendered output wrapped
      up as an image in a PDF. Additionally, there is a 'pclm' device
      which produces PCLm format output.
    + There is now a ColorAccuracy parameter allowing the user to
      decide between speed or accuracy in ICC color transforms.
    + JPEG Passthrough: devices which support it can now receive the
      'raw' JPEG stream from the interpreter. The main use of this is
      the pdfwrite/ps2write family of devices that can now take JPEG
      streams from the input file(s) and write them unchanged to the
      output (thus avoiding additional quantization effects).
    + PDF transparency performance improvements
  * Difference to Debian package:
    + openjpeg library bundled with upstream Ghostscript/GhostPDL used
      instead of the original openjpeg library, as the original library
      is not accepted into Ubuntu Main
      (https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/711061).
  * Use bundled lcms2art instead of system's liblcms2 as the former
    one is made thread safe and also contains preformance enhancements
    which got rejected upstream.
  * Updated list of stripped files/paths in debian/copyright
  * Added licenses of bundled openjpeg and lcms2 libraries to
    debian/copyright
  * Updated/refreshed the 20* patches
  * Dropped CVE-2016-10317.patch as it is included upstream.
  * debian/libgs9.symbols: Updated for new upstream source. Applied patch
    which dpkg-gensymbols generated.
