Release Notes: Options were added that allow precise adjustments to be made to the ratio of bar widths and space widths.
Release Notes: Placement problems with the border of EAN-2 and EAN-5 symbols have been fixed by amending the baseline of the bars.
Release Notes: The options required to enable a customisable border around any barcode symbol were added to the renderer.
Release Notes: An options parser was added to the renderer. Each renderer was modified to pass a copy of its user-defined options to the renderer. A new user-definable option called inkspread that reduces the width of the bars was added to the renderer.
Release Notes: The options parser for each of the encoders was upgraded to remove the 30 character size limitation from individual options within a given option string.
Release Notes: The ISBN encoder was upgraded to support the emerging ISBN-13 symbology.
Release Notes: PostScript and PDF documentation is now created using the new pst-barcode LaTeX package to generate the barcode images.
Release Notes: The isbnfont, isbnsize, and isbnpos options were added to allow the independant manipulation of the upper part of the human readable text within the ISBN symbology.
Release Notes: A minor fix was made to the positioning of human readable text within the Code 128 symbology.
Release Notes: Optional whitespace guards have been added to the human readable text of EAN barcodes. The position of the first character of EAN-13s has been adjusted to guard the whitespace to the left of the bars.
