    XEP 3.6.1-3.6.2 has a problem in PFB font embedding.
    This will be fixed in XEP 3.6.3, to be released in a day
    or two.

    Other changes in PostScript generator comprise an ability to set
    page device settings for individual pages. These changes are
    quite local, and seemingly innocuous.

    Best regards,

    Subject: [xep-support] Postscript problems

    Hi all,

    I noticed that XEP 3.51 & XEP 3.6x versions produce *very* different postscript versions. Using the exact same fo file, the
    postscript produced by XEP 3.51 goes through Acrobat distiller with no problem. The produced pdf opens with no error. With XEP 3.6x
    however, Acrobat distiller choakes and returns an error message (offending command - very precise error message thanks to Adobe).
    What modifications to the postscript output were made between these 2 versions and how can we fix the problem as I want to benefit
    from the 3.6x improvements and still maintain my build process as it is?

    Best Regards,
    Stéphane Bline.
