Major version bumps in the "core" Centos packages are relatively uncommon,
barring major bugs and the like.  We may (or may not) see ghostscript 9.x in
Centos 7 when it is released but I would be somewhat surprised to see it in
Centos 6 and below.

If you really need the latest version you may be able to compile it yourself.
I do that with some of the software that I use on my Centos systems.


Thanks for your reply.  I was afraid that might be the answer.  So far
it looks like a major problem with hylafax+.  I have very little
experience compiling my own versions, and my results have not resulting
in bragging rituals.  Looks like I have some things to learn.  Is there
a way to be able to compile the 9.07 in different directories so that I
do not destroy 8.70 or the libraries.
