Poster takes a one-page PostScript file and scales it to a specified
size.  It can tile the resulting image into multiple smaller pages
that can be pasted together to form the big poster.  Poster prefers
EPS as its input although freer forms of PostScript are also

[ Daniel Hermann ]
* New upstream version introducing command line options necessary for
kdeprint (Closes: #379378, #379422, #464096)
* reapplying patches that previously fixed #255718, #323535
* not applying patch that previously fixed #339038, since it no
longer fixes the problem. Instead introducing "/setpagedevice {
pop } def" (line 968), taken from diff between 19990428 and 20050907).
* could not check #361088, test file no longer available
* multi-page poster printing may be broken to allow for non-DSC-compliant
single-page poster printing (e.g. containing "%%Page:" comments from
embedded EPS images).
