Just FYI, after following some links in the GNU ghostcript homepage:

Notes: This is the first release of the 8.0x series under the GPL. It is very
similar to the AFPL Ghostscript 8.00 release; the primary motivation is to
change the license of the released code per our policy of a one year delay.
Please also note the name change from GNU Ghostscript to GPL Ghostscript.
Ghostscript is no longer a GNU project. The most significant new feature since
7.0x is support for DeviceN colorspaces, up to 8 colorants total at 8 bits per
component. Also, pdfwrite has seen considerable improvement in font handling,
and many other bug fixes.
