Description

Hi,

Would it be possible to update gnuplot to the latest upstream version (4.4.2) ?

New features, changes and fixes in gnuplot version 4.4.2 (source: http://www.gnuplot.info/announce.4.4.2):

Version 4.4.2 corrects three problems in the released version 4.4.1.

- Fixes a regression that caused color specification "lc N" to fail
- Fixes a long-standing clipping error in plots with filled curves
- Fixes a segfault if a "refresh" commands follows an interrupted replot

The attached patch touches:

  • the version
  • the files (tarball and pdf) digests
  • the pdf file rename (upstream stopped using the gnuplot version in the filename)

Replying to jpo@…:

  • the pdf file rename (upstream stopped using the gnuplot version in the filename)

Does this mean that upstream will never publish a new pdf file again, or that they will be publishing new pdf files under the same name? I suspect the latter, which means we need to start using a dist_subdir with the version number in it so that we don't run into checksum errors in the future.

Only time will tell how upstream will release future gnuplot PDFs (version > 4.4.2). Most likely your solution to avoid checksum errors will have to be adopted.
